"Chirp" (Warlock) by Yeldarb

Warlock of the New Mutants was originally a rather menacing monster from outer space, or so he seemed, with his bizarre appearance and deadly touch. But it wasn't long before he became comedy relief. He was described making a chirping noise in New Mutants #26.

"Fright" (Astrophobia: the Fear of Outer Space) by Yeldarb

Astrophobia or Spacephobia is the fear of outer space. While for an astronaut this might mean fear of drifting into the depths of space while on a space walk, for more earthbound people this is connected to a fear of aliens. Movies about hostile aliens have had a significant effect on making this unusual phobia more common.

"United States Senate" (Missing Panel from Days of Future Past) by Yeldarb

I recently read X-Men 141 and 142 again and felt that the story needed a panel in which the X-Men rush past Senator Kelly to save him from the New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, since they seemed to suddenly appear the scene awfully fast in the original comic (Kitty, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine weren't even in the room with the Brotherhood burst inside).

Shell by Ray Richardson

Not realizing the word of the week fell on Easter Sunday I decided to venture out of the norm and got a Shell hopefully no one else considered. The Shell station sign in Hunter's Creek near my home.

"Shell" by Christian Slade

My six year old twins enjoy some Plastic egg candy this Easter Sunday. What was left was a pile of shells to clean up. Now let's see what those other three stooges came up with....

"Artist on Tap"-4/20/14

There is an immensely talented artist who is sometimes known as the Grandmaster of Fantastic Art. People react to his images on a visceral, emotional level. His art vibrates with tension and movement, and even his still figures seem ready to spring to life.  He creates images of the fantastic but they are always grounded in realism. He was a modern-day classical artist working in an era when artists of this sort could no longer be found. There is nobody quite like him, though he's probably the most influential artist of the past half-century.

His name is Frank Frazetta. I've learned more from this amazing artist than any other single creative person I can think of, and every time I gaze at one of his images, I realize that there is more for me to learn. With this understanding comes the old excitement and desire to improve and to produce art of my own. Frazetta's subject matter, his dynamism, his anatomy, and realism make his art a treat for the eyes. He, like few others, can make the viewer feel drawn into another world with but a glimpse of his art. A lush and primal world of great beauty and savagery which seems as real as the world outside one's window.

This selection of art shows Frazetta's talent with oil painting, watercolor, pen and ink, and pencil. His skill is incredible. But most amazing of all, he never used reference. He didn't need it. You may see more at
