Illustration Friday’s theme of Whiskers led me down the path of Catwoman, and specifically Michelle Pfeiffer’s version of Catwoman from Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. After all the different Batman movies including Christopher Nolan’s excellent trilogy, Batman Returns remains my favourite (I could even say that Michael Keaton is my prefered Batman) with its festively dark atmosphere, political undertones and brilliantly designed characters including (aside from the S&M inspired Catwoman) Danny DeVito’s Penguin and Christopher Walken as Max Skreck.
I’m now taking requests for upcoming additions of the Comic Book Movie page, so if there’s an old favourite that you’d love to see re-created in comic book form let me know, and who knows, yours might be next! Anyone who’s suggestion is used will get a special mention on the site. In the meantime you can check out the ever-growing collection via official Comic Book Movies Page. Enjoy.
A little Thanksgiving special this week with another John Hughes classic, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Probably my favourite of the Hughes movies and a masterpiece of mixed emotions; what an ending! I can’t imagine anyone who could pull of the role off Del as well as John Candy. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving. I’m now taking […]
Illustration Friday’s theme of ‘Tree‘ offered the perfect reason to use John McTiernan’s classic Predator as the next Comic Book Movie. If there’s one film that features a lot of trees this is it! Still up there as one of the most enjoyable and quotable action movies ever made. I’m now taking requests for upcoming […]
In my first ever Comic Book Movie ‘by request’ I bring you Stephen King’s classic tale of boyhood friendship and dead bodies, Stand By Me. Many thanks to Tina Mories for suggesting a film that frankly, I should have thought of a long time ago!
How can you do a Halloween special without talking about John Carpenter’s brilliant Halloween. A classic that spawned several sequels of mixed quality and a terrible re-make, the original remains one of my all-time favourites and is the last of my Halloween flavoured Comic Book Movies. Happy Halloween everyone! For more Comic Book Movies visit […]
In the second of my Comic Book Movie Halloween specials, I bring you another favourite The Monster Squad. A light-hearted homage to the classic Universal Monsters, Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon mixed with the teenage adventures of the Goonies. Another absolute classic and perfect Halloween viewing. Enjoy and come back tomorrow […]
The countdown to Halloween starts here with my first of three horror favourites leading up to the fright filled day. Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is a classic example of sophisticated horror that manages to get under your skin by the use of clever visual design, music, and ideas; never having to resort to cheap gore or […]
It’s been a busy past few weeks here in the Wing’s Art office. I’ve just put the finishing touches to my first commercial comic book which i will reveal very soon, but i have managed (if not a little last minute) this quick sketch for Illustration Friday’s theme of Book. I offer you one of […]
In a brilliantly overacted performance by Bruce Campbell in a scene from Army of Darkness, Ash spawns a twin! This week’s Comic Book Movie working to the theme of ‘identical’ as set by Illustration Friday, is a more developed drawing than my usual sketches, but i’m pretty pleased with how this one turned out and was […]
Dolph Lundgren’s character in Rocky 4 is more than just tall. Up against little Sly Stallone he looks like a giant! Rocky 4 is this week’s Illustration Friday submission, on the theme of ‘tall’.
John Hughes 80′s classic The Breakfast Club took a while to grow on me, but is now one of those films that seems to get funnier every time I watch it. There are great one-liners from the character Principle Vernon, played in a brilliant hard-ass fashion by Paul Gleason, who seemed to have reprised this […]
Thinking up something for this week’s Illustration Friday theme of Bounce was surprisingly tough. In my usual style I wanted to link it to one of my favourite movies and my first thought was White Men Can’t Jump. That proved harder to realise than I thought, but the basketball theme lead me rather bizarrely to […]
One of my all-time favorite movies of the 80s The Lost Boys is my Comic Book Movie this week and works to the theme of lost as set by Illustration Friday.
The longest sip in cinema features as this week’s Comic Book Movie, working to the Illustration Friday theme of Refresh.
Ray Peterson’s new neighbours, the Klopeks have a secret. Strange things are happening in his average suburban street and he’s going to find out exactly what they’re up to…. The Burbs is my Illustration Friday sketch this week on the topic of Secret.
Michael J. ‘Crocodile’ Dundee finds himself pretty puzzled by the sights and sounds of New York city in this week’s Illustration Friday sketch.
After losing the entire crew of the Nostromo on LV-426, nobody was going to convince Ellen Ripley to return. Corporate lackey, Carter Burke manipulates her into facing the Alien for a second time in this scene from James Cameron’s 80′s classic, Aliens. This week’s Illustration Friday submission.
There’s a conversation between the characters Cher and Josh in the movie Clueless about how Marky Mark (aka Mark Wahlberg) would like to use his popularity for a good cause. My intention was to use that as the basis for my Illustration Friday sketch this week. It didn’t quite work out so I give you […]
This week’s Illustration Friday theme of Forward comes courtesy of Rocky Balboa.
Given the topic of ‘Grounded’ by Illustration Friday this week, the best my primitive intellect could come up with was Star Trek IV, in which Kirk, Spock and the crew are grounded in 1986, where they are forced to locate the ‘nuclear wessells’ in order to power their voyage home while also saving the whales.
Not this Christmas Eve Detective John McClane! You’ve got to take down the bad guys in the festive classic, Die Hard! Merry Christmas!!! Wing.
A very quick pen and ink sketch as my submission to Illustration Friday this week. This time depicting a scene from Silent Running.
