Spectacular Spider-Man #14, Page 1, Panel 4. 2004.
Oil on masontie, 16 × 24″.

R. Kikuo Johnson plays a great thief in this panel from Spectacular Spidey #14. And Ryan Dunn plays the inquisitive cop. Ryan also played the part of Joey, whom some of you might remember. All part of a great story from Paul Jenkins — and my first crack at Spider-Man. Fond memories all around.

My roommates were always willing to lend a hand (or a face).

I bought a lot of groceries from this Key Food.

  1. Hi. Been lurking for a while. I don't have anything pithy to add, but I Just wanted to say that I appreciate these posts because I know sometimes it's difficult to tell if you're reaching anyone out there if you're not getting much commentary from the folks who read your blog.

    This has definitely heledp me think about gathering reference material in a different way.


    1. Hi, Pat! Thanks for saying so. Much appreciated.

  2. I´m repeating myself again...but your painted artwork is fantastic!
    You should do it more often.

    1. Thanks! I don't have much time for it these days, but I will say that I've got 2 very big paintings coming up. Probably won't be ready to show until the summer.

  3. Hi Paolo, your work is awesome! thanks for inspiration
