JAVILAND 11-21-09

I was on the latest episode(28)of Javier Hernandez’s JAVILAND PODCAST “What need does your art fulfill in readers?” was tonight’s topic. Although the chat meandered a bit- (Steve Ditko was one of my favorite diversions!) it was really great as usual to be able to share ideas with the guys. Tonight’s panel included:

Javier Hernandez, Creator of EL MUERTO and DEMOLITION DOVE

Tedd Seko of PAPERENGINE and comics like BILLY COLE & The Devil Has a Funny Laugh

Jim Lujan- animator of the underbelly of reality

George Ward of DUNGEON LEGACY webcomic

and new JAVILAND panelist, Simpsons Movie storyboard artist, Simpsons Comic book artist  Luis Escobar!

While chatting with the Javilanders, I made this bit of fan art- everyone’s characters are featured and it was lotsa fun to make. You can figure out which character is whose by visiting everyone’s site above! HINT!

Javier Hernandez is a class act and a creative guy. Everyone in indy comics knows that- but I’ve had the pleasure recently to get to know him better as a result of being accepted into his circle of DIY comickers. You would most likely know Jav from his EL MUERTO character; which was made into a film in 2007 and is now on DVD. I really like the character and the comic and I recommend that you buy that book and his other comic book ventures. Here it is- El Muerto fan art for you JAVIER! Hope you like.

EDIT: I am going to color it- I’ll post it in here when it’s finished, my amigos muertos!
