The Home of the Creative Mind

Welcome to PooBahSpiel, the online voice and home of the creative mind of Mark Monlux, Illustrator Extraordinaire. Prepare yourself for an endless regaling of art directly from the hand of this stellar artist. And brace yourself against his mighty wind of pontification. Updates are kinda weekly and show daily sketches, current projects, and other really nifty stuff.

Cover Art for the soon to be printed “The Comic Critic Presents Seldom Seen Films”

My first book is almost ready to send to the printer. I thought you would like to see the process I went through on developing the cover art. First I did a concept comp.

Then I did a pen and ink.

Then I added color.

Of course there was a lot more to it then that. Lots of little changes along the way and lots a queries to friends on their valued suggestions, many of which I applied. I will let you know when it is sent off to the printers and becomes available.

Another Thank You to Jake Morris for another guest strip for The Return of Stickman. This is #1094.
