Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! One of my favorite holidays! This year I want to share a battle between some of my favorite characters. Done for an online competition!  Own the original in my store^^^.


Stocktober • The Creature from the Black Lagoon

Tony here with the Gill-man! Yes! Talk about famous monsters. This film is awesome!  Underwater diving with Gill-man and filmed so clear.  I have seen this film a few times and absolutely love the horror and tragedy. I think the best part about him though, has to be the amazing costume design.  This concludes my six Universal Studios monster movies done as sketch cards. What a great time I had this year, hopefully next year I can come up with another fun theme.

Done on a 3.5 x 2.5″ sketch card with ink and marker.


Stocktober • The Mummy

Tony here with another Boris Karloff gem. He portrayed “the mummy” in another Universal Classic.  I have personally never seen this film, but intend to. Here is a clip I have illustrated representing Karloff in Mummy form.

Stocktober • Frankenstein

What I consider to be the most recognizable and famous of all the monsters. Frankenstein’s monster himself. Boris Karloff, a man of a thousand faces does an amazing job showing emotion through a stiff burly monster. This will always be my go-to Frankenstein monster.

Stocktober • Bride of Frankenstein

Tony back again with a personal favorite of the Universal monsters. The Bride of Frankenstein. I consider one of the greatest spinoffs of all time. It’s more than just a monster movie, check it out.

Sunday in Rander • 112th Edition

It’s been a while, but I’ve been hard at work on all kinds of art lately. Between online commissions, doing Rander V2, conventions commissions, as well as Stocktober starting up again and also a new secret project I’ve been working on it’s been keeping my pencil busy.

Last week was Baltimore Comic Con and I was able to bring Return to Rander to Maryland again.  However, this time it wasn’t what most conventions are. I didn’t move as many copies as I had hoped, but with the help of my buddy K Rian Miller, I was able to have copies held at the 3 locations of Beyond Comics! So that is cool, thanks Rian!

Here’s a picture of us manning our booths.  Even though Rander didn’t fly off the table, I was plenty busy selling art, making art, and conversing with some pretty cool people!  Now, to go back to the drawing table!


Stocktober • Wolfman

Once again, Halloween season is here, and another year of Stocktober greatness over at Stockpilecomics.tumblr.com.  For the past 4 years we have posted our horror favorites. Every year I think about doing the Universal Studios monsters, and finally this is the year! So I plan to pull famous scenes from the films themselves and to put the black bars at top and bottom of them to make them feel cinematic.

I start with the iconic Wolfman. The thing I love most about this version of him is that he is literally a wolf-man. Sometimes werewolf movies make them as actual wolves.  This has charm to it!  So stay tuned as I post the rest of my Universal Monsters!
