Doctor Who ~ "The Angels Take Manhattan" [Ep.7.05]

Doctor WHO - The Angels Take Manhattan [Ep.7.05]
(click on the above image for the larger poster view)

And here it is, my poster for tonight's mid-season finale of DOCTOR WHO, "The Angels Take Manhattan", aired on BBC America.
I am not gonna add too much cause I don't want to spoiler the episode for those of you who haven't seen it yet, but it was a REALLY GOOD one.
And the Weeping Angels are some of the scariest thing I have seen on all WHO (and not WHO) seasons.

It's gonna be tough waiting for when the new episodes air in late December...

As always, hope you enjoyed this and please leave me a note if you did :)

Doctor WHO ³ ~ "The Power Of Three" [Ep.7.04]

Doctor WHO - The Power Of Three [Ep.7.04]
(click on the above image for the larger poster view)

Hi guys,

As promised, here's my minimalist poster for the new Doctor Who's episode "The Power of Three" aired tonight on BBC America.
This was one of my favorite WHO episodes in recent history: really cool concept, spooky cubes, and without getting in any spoilers, it had something that reminded me of Twilight Zone, and even if the whole episode was Twilight-Zone-y, I am referring to a specific TZ episode. Extra points to who guesses which episode :)

As usual, I am also posting the pencils (below) - done while watching the episode - for the poster.

Hope you guys enjoyed the episode as well and dig the poster :)

Doctor Who ~ "A Town Called Mercy" [Ep.7.03]

(click on the above image for the larger poster view)

Hi guys,

As promised, here's my minimalist poster for the new Doctor Who's episode "A Town Called Mercy" aired last night on BBC America.
And - as usual - I am posting also the pencils (below) for the poster done while watching the episode.
I did 2 sketches for this one: the one that you see here and another cool imagery for the episode. Maybe I will ink it later, when the season goes in hiatus for the winter break, yes? 

And to keep it in the WHO spirit, yesterday I received my comps of the cover (and cover sketch) I did for IDW's Doctor WHo/ Star Trek TNG crossover ASSIMILATION 2 miniseries. Check out the picture below: hopefully you guys have been picking up this books as well.

Asl always, pls let me hear from ya :)

Hey guys,

the first issue of a new Captain AMerica mini I am drawing is coming out today in the stores all over the Country. It's CAPTAIN AMERICA and BLACK WIDOW #636, and it's written by my dear friend Cullen Bunn and illustrated and colored by yours truly.
You can check the large 7-pages preview above (click on the image for larger view) and hopefully decide to pick up the book in the stores.

Here some things to know about this issue:
• It's a good jump-on point/issue - it's fully enjoyable even if you haven't read previous issues
• It's CAPTAIN AMERICA meets TWILIGHT ZONE meets FRINGE meets LETHAL REDHEADS. Yes, it's as much crazy FUN as it sounds :)
• It's a fun story with good looking (I hope) artwork
• It's only 2.99 bucks.
• Did I mention REDHEADS? I mean, like 2 of them? :D

Hope you enjoy the read as much I enjoyed drawing it :)

Doctor WHO - Asylum Of The Daleks
(click on the above image for the larger poster view)

Hi guys,


Season 7 of Doctor Who premiered tonight on BBC America with "Asylum of the Daleks" and -as what is now a tradition ;) - I sketched a quick spoiler-free poster for the episode while watching it and inked it right after. Above is the result (and below the pencil sketch). As usual I try to keep it quick and below the 15/20 minutes mark :)
Also: I will never get tired to draw DALEKS, they are so much fun :)

Hope you guys dig it, and pls leave a note if you do: love to hear from ya :)
