HELLBOY by David Cutler


Big props to Michael for what I think is clearly the best Spitball pick so far--Hellboy might even be the first character we've done where all seven of us regular-types are big fans of the source material and count the creator as influential. Came along at a great time for me as well, as I'd been purposely trying to get some of the cartooniness out of my work recently and mostly hating the results. Luckily, HB's clean, iconic design was the perfect thing to ease me back into my default style and remind myself I'd prefer to be a cartoonist than a draftsman. Mike Mignola saves another life.

This is awesome. The background behind him works well. Is this group taking anymore contributors?

Thanks Tee--we're not a group of contributors so much as a group of friends who get together at the TO drink and draws. We may do guest posts in the future, but we're not looking for any more regulars right away. Thanks for the interest, your stuff is really cool! (and bonus points for drawing Aquaman)
