This the design for Ultimate Diablo and the first few pages from the issue of Ultimate Fantastic Four that he'll be appearing in. I was ecstatic when Marvel called and asked me to design the Ultimate version of the classic Kirby character since Diablo has been my internet handle for years. I'm trying a little something different with these pages by making them a bit more detailed and including a lot more cross-hatching and textures. Whether it's better or worse than my previous work is up to the viewer but I like to experiment with my artwork from time to time just to see the results.
Also, This Thursday night, tune in to the BIGFANBOY LIVECAST #7, featuring myself and inking master Jaime Mendoza. Host Mark Walters runs an interactive internet radio show, where listeners can call in and participate in the chat room, or just listen online live. The show begins at 9pm Central (10pm Eastern) this Thursday night, January 25th. For full instructions and info on the show, head over to
and look in the CREATOR INTERVIEWS section. We'll be talking about everything from Comics and movies to video games and the seedy underbelly of professional comic work (i.e.- booze and strip clubs). Not only that but I've agreed to do a shot of tequila every 15 minutes during the duration of the show(that's 8 shots for anyone that's counting) so please sign up and call in to make fun of me or just listen to me make a complete and utter fool of myself.
This is sure to be a fun couple of hours, so please tune in!
instructions for signing up and calling in for free are at the following link:
It's easy to do so I expect all of you to be listening or calling in. I need all the support I can get!
Thanks for checking the work out!
