Mythos: X-Men, Page 5 (panel 3 detail). 2005.
Oil on masonite, 16 x 24".

We have more guests this week, this time playing the roles of Professor X (R. Kikuo Johnson) and Scott Summers (Matt Moore, who was also my original model for Peter Parker). In this panel, the two lead the team down to the Danger Room to commence their afternoon exercises. You can see my preliminary pencils for the page on Kikuo's lap as he tries to match the pose. As for the other picture? Well, you can see how much beer was being consumed in my house around that time. That's what happens when you mix 4 guys, a car, and a Costco membership.

  1. Xavier remind my Yul Brinner. Lovely style!

  2. Always enlightening to see how you approach your work.

  3. Thanks, guys! And yes, Yul was was definitely my main inspiration. I think he may have even inspired the look of the character... but we'll probably never know.
