Hairy King and Hawkman!

This fella is part of a larger drawing...a king-type appraising a slave. It's a little bit based on a Frank Frazetta picture but the king in his drawing quite a LARGE man. Big of tummy, is he. Once again I feel bad for posting a pencil drawing. I'm not sure why I dislike posting sketches...I'd much rather show this when it's a finished picture but this week has been awfully busy with other work. I promise that when he's inked you will see the picture in its entirety!

While you wait for me to get my work done :) might I suggest checking out the artwork here. The creators of this site have a gallery of comics' hunkiest men! This particular painting was the cover to an issue of Hawkman. I actually posted on the Hawkman message board in an attempt to find out if the artist, John Watson, was willing to sell the original! He replied in the negative. Too bad for me.

Such Cheek!

Oh, that summer were here already! I do dislike the cold and dampness of Canadian spring. Not only is it uncomfortably chilly but everyone is all a-bundle in semi-winter attire. If only it were hot, that man might free himself to bask uncovered in summer's sunshiney glow!

For a bit of fun in your daily routine you might consider printing this chap out on heavy paper stock. Cut carefully around his outline and the triangular thingy beside him. Fold along the dotted line and glue or tape the support vertically up the backside of your man. The support works just like a picture frame, in case you're having trouble. Place him upright at your workstation, on top of your computer or wherever your line of sight falls when daydreaming at your desk. Let his saucy attitude warm you on a chilly, rainy day!

warm hugs,
