Glenn and Maggie
when we think of The Walking Dead, the first thing that comes to mind is obviously zombies. but “The Walking Dead,” as any fan knows, is more than just zombies, it’s about the people in this situation- their strategies, their decisions, their relationships. one unique relationship in the show, is that of Glenn and Maggie, who *spoilers* are the only real couple on there. their romantic relationship was established and exists after the apocalypse, a rare and beautiful idea. i wanted to play with that for this cover, so rather than go with my first instinct which was zombiesGutsBloodSplatterAction, i did something i could ONLY do with these characters. i love drawing fake movie posters, and this let me pay homage to old-timey horror films, as well as the cheesy romance comics of the 50s, which is something you don’t often get to mix.

Vanessa Frankenstein as The Black Widow
the inspiration for this drawing came from some recent photos of pinup model, Vanessa Frankenstein, who beautifully wore a 1960s-style hairdo, and gave me heart-eyes for days (which translated to me HAVING to draw her). she’s already timelessly gorgeous, but with the hair, she looked straight out of a silver-age comic. for this reason, i drew her as the ultimate femme fatale, the Black Widow. i attempted to replicate her photo on paper, then added a body. i wanted her to hold a retro, spy-looking, Cold War era gun, and found a neat, curvy one, but it was neither russian nor american, which means something, if you think about it hard enough. the background is meant to look like a ‘60s movie poster, so i used thick lines, solid shapes, and messy “brushstrokes” like you see in a lot of that art. the style was also inspired by one of my favorite comic covers of all time, Black Widow #5 by Daniel Acuna and by the art of Phil Noto, who’s undoubtedly one of the best artists to have ever drawn the character.

the Thunderbird is a legend. generation after generation, it was the benchmark for design and an icon of American motor. while riding my bike last night, I came across two - a late 50s model that flew by, and an 05 model sitting in a used car lot. while I admire the bold, nostalgic interpretation of that late model, I thought there was something missing -fins.
for this drawing, I traced the 05 t-bird but added some ‘56-styled fins to make it look bigger and faster and less like some old-lady Jaguar. I understand that they preserved as much as they could (and don’t get me wrong, this car I’d nearly perfect in my eyes) but i think had this car come out in a post-Chrysler 300 world, I they would’ve incorporated some hard edges to the body aand made it more like what a Thunderbird oughta be.
HOW TO: SIXTIES HAIR TUTORIAL
This hair tutorial presents an easy way to get a cute sixties hairstyle.
All you need is a 1‘‘ curling iron, a comb or a teasing brush (well just something you like to tease with, I’m using my tangle teaser in this tutorial), a round brush, some duckbill clips, a bobby pin and (of course) hairspray. This hairstyle works with shorter or longer hair, with bangs or without.
#game of thrones
let’s be entirely honest here- the Lannisters are an easy lot to hate. as much as i’d enjoy watching them all die a slow painful death, that family has one member who’s not only likeable, but intelligent, hilarious, charismatic, and everything else a man should be. i’m referring ,of course, to Tyrion, as portrayed by Peter Dinklage on “Game Of Thrones” after last night’s episode, i was reminded that if anyone, it is he who deserves to be king. drawn in pen, pencil, and Sharpie.
