I'm enjoying discovering artists so much on Tumblr that I'm mainly posting my sketchbook stuff over there now -- here's the link!

Online Store launches today!

I've finally set up an online store where you can purchase Original Art from my Marvel days, as well as signed collections and prints.

For June, there's a selection of Marvel pages with a variety of great characters.  I'm amazed at how much of the Marvel Universe has already made it into the mainstream -- Iron Man, Batroc, Days of Future Past, Sentinels, and even Blink.  And, soon Ultron will make his way into Avengers 2!  It's incredible what the Marvel Studios team has pulled off in such a short time.

Here's a look at this Iron Man page, which has never been offered before.  It took forever to get the originals back on this issue, but I was happy to see them when they arrived.  Great inks by Juan Vlasco!

I had a blast drawing Batroc the Leaper kicking the crap out of all the Avengers in this comic -- Hawkeye, Cap, Spidey, Wolverine... a great cast of characters!  Batroc was the terrorist on the ship in Cap 3 (for you non-comic book people).  They did an amazing job translating the character into the Marvel film universe!  Magnifique!

New Marvel collections

I got some new books in from Marvel last week. Nice collections of some of the stuff I've done in the past. First up is this Excalibur paperback:

Excalibur Visionaries: Warren Ellis Vol. 2

Hard to believe I was 19-20 when I worked on this stuff! Hopefully I got a little better in past 16 years. It is weird to flip through this and have instant recall of what I was doing or listening to while drawing particular pages. Lots of memories of David Bowie and Richard Case! Loud, late-nite drawing with my buddy.

Nice to see these new colors on the Pacheco cover! Looks great. This is the first time Warren's Excalibur is being collected, so I'm glad to see it. Volume 3 will have the majority of my run, but this one has my first 3 issues.

Also new, is this giant Exiles TPB:

Exiles Ultimate Collection Book 5

I've only got 1 issue in this big book but it was fun to look through. I'll be curious if they continue with these Ultimate Collections through the Jeff Parker run where I drew a lot more. We'll see.

We have explosive

Another piece wrapped up. I think I'm actually going to color this one, so here's a look with some flats in place. The guy who got me to do this was very cool and let me have a lot of fun on it. He was also a Wipeout XL fan from back in the day, so that was brought up as inspiration. That soundtrack from back in the 90's was always great inspiration while drawing Excalibur, so it was fun to revisit it. Great memories of those times with Rob and David when they were in Greensboro. Hard to believe it was so long ago!
By the way, I've discontinued the old casey@caseyjonesart.com email address, so from now on please use the .mac address (if you email me!). Thanks!

Happy FCBD!

Thinking of good memories! Hope everyone has a great one!

I've been going through a bunch of old paperwork in the past few weeks and found a bunch of my old contracts and letters from when I was first starting out in comics. I read a ton of biographies, and for whatever reason, I love seeing pictures of the actual artifacts from time gone by -- stuff like old telegrams, letterhead, check stubs, etc. It's the stuff no one sees unless they were around long ago or had similar careers. So, I thought I'd share some of the stuff I dug up.

Here's my first page rate at Marvel that good ol' Bob Harras set up for me. A lot of people badmouthed Bob after he was let go, but he was always true to his word with me and treated me well. And, he put me on Excalibur, so of course, I think he is truly brilliant.

And my first paycheck from Marvel. You have to love a company with John Romita artwork on all their stationary and checks.
You kids today don't know how lucky you have it with Marvel's new "direct deposit" accounting. Holy crap. I could write ten pages about how AMAZING this is. No more long walks to the mailbox to come back empty-handed -- no more being at the mercy of the postman! I was almost in tears when this went into place a few years ago. Go kiss Joe Quesada the next time you see him and say "thanks".
