Some of my art.

Postby Ken Davis » Tue Jan 06, 2015 11:43 am

Hi everyone. As requested, here's some recent samples of my artwork from various sources.
They are pieces from this past year and have seen publication/use. I'm currently working on storyboards for a web-series called "Don't Feed the Humans"--which can be viewed on Youtube. The episodes I've 'boarded are currently in the production pipeline and should be aired later this year.
I have other art-pieces on the go on my desk as well, and will post those as they get wrapped up over time, but for now......here's some stuff....

First off is a pin-up done for a local comic shop magazine called PUNCH, this was on the back cover of issue #3.
This one is pencil & ink, on bristol, coloured in Photoshop.

Image

This one is a illustration for an in-store ad promoting a how-to-draw class I was privileged to teach.

And here is a variant blank cover pencil & ink drawing I did for the same store, for a charity auction.
This was tricky to do because the comic needed to be kept as clean as possible

Thank you all for the comments.

Here's a few other items:

The Hanna-Barbera pin-up was on the back cover of PUNCH #3, a fan magazine published by Amazing Stories, a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan comic book store ( and a Shuster award nominee for best comic store in Canada) The cover is also a work of mine in a collaboration with a colleague, Jordan Ratzlaff who painted it. This image is Jordan's digital paints over my scanned pencil layout and concept.

Image

Now, there were some changes made along the way, which Jordan made with my blessings. Here's the original pencil rough:
Image

One of the items from PUNCH is a on-going series of articles, featuring a shameless caricature of myself as the character of "Toy King", the mascot of the articles on toy-collecting. In the latest issue, Toy King has a bit of a run in with another toy celebrity:

Image

...and continuing to poke fun at myself in PUNCH, and in those self-same articles Toy King takes on some "different" flavours....

Ken Davis - You are too talented and you should share your art to DC Comics immediately and get a job there. Your Art is way better than half or 2/3 of art that I see over there. Man, you are so TALENTED ... THANKS FOR SHARING IT.

Yeah really, this is really amazing artwork. It's a real privilege to have an industry professional share his artwork on here, Ken!

Wow Ken. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us. Are the latter pieces your own style that you came up with? It looks very familiar to me, I have the feeling that I've seen your work all over the place! :pagrin:
