Deadly Hands of Kung Fu

Here are the xeroxes of my pencils with balloon placement for an issue of Deadly Hands of Kung Fu featuring Shang Chi. Lots of Joe Kubert influence on this stuff for me...probably to the annoyance of the writer who was always leaving comments on the backs of the pages. Once got a story with a description of page 1 &2 and the last page. The directions for the rest of the job was do a fight scene - and make it interesting. Of course, once it was turned in he complained the the editor that my fight wasn't very interesting. I volunteered to return my writing fee on the job. lol.  Best, Mike

Smurph Color Boards

Here are a few boards and background designs I did for the Smurph movie a few years back. Enjoy.

Here's a very creepy story I worked on a few years back. When it was finished the editor rejected it and it was never published...he didn't like the idea of using photoshop rather than zip-atone. But that's often what happens when you work for Live and learn.

Here's one from the archives. This was a project I developed for Eric Radomski when I was at Film Roman close to 15 years ago...but like many film projects it never saw the light of day as far as I know. It was lots of fun to work, and my old friend John Ott did another stellar job coloring the frames.  Enjoy...cause I don't think you'll see it on TV.
