Heatwave...

Still chipping away at Claude McKay this week... my 15 page comics bio of the Harlem Renaissance poet is slowly reaching completion. I've also been regularly submitting cover ideas to Francoise Mouly and Nadja Spiegelman's Blown Covers website... it's a lot of fun seeing the terrific designs by various talented cartoonists who rise to the challenge each week for the love of it. Plus I'm developing a piece for a comics anthology here in Spain, where a variety of artists will each be bringing to life a particular mythological figure. I've long been a Medusa fan... above, you'll note my take on the scary, sexy monstress, below, a recent sketch and an earlier interpretation from twenty (gasp) years ago! A week ago sunday was Mother's Day in Spain and yesterday was Mother's Day in the States. To all you mothers out there, starting with my own, I wish you all the best... the sketch below is for you! And back to Claude McKay again, to compliment the Jamaica…

A man of few words...

We'll keep the chatter to a minimum this time out... here are five new images from my upcoming Claude McKay bio... I should be done with the fifteen page story in about a week... please click each image to enlarge. The rest of the images are from among the more than a hundred sketches created in the past month. They come from various projects and I'll let them do the talking... please click each image to enlarge. As always, I'm glad you stopped by. African-American Classics is still available for purchase and I urge you to visit GraphicClassics.com to check it out. Hope life's treating you well! Lance Tooks
