Green Lantern: A Blast from My Past!

(Please click to enlarge)

In celebration (OK, maybe not so much "celebration." I mean, no one's exactly dancing in the streets) of the new "Green Lantern" flick, featuring Ryan Reynolds (now playing in theaters!), I figured I'd share a neat little sketch I did over 12 years ago of then-Green Lantern Kyle Rayner (as opposed to the Silver Age Lantern, Hal Jordan, whom Reynolds portrays). This was an entry for a contest that one of my favorite magazines at the time, the now-defunct Wizard: The Guide to Comics, held to commemorate its upcoming 100th issue and whichever amateur artist drew the coolest single character drawing would get the cover spot for that issue! Needless to say, I didn't win but some fella who did a bang-up job of the Mighty Thor (who also got his own film this year!) did (and I tried to track down his name to give him his props. Seriously, it was THAT good). Still, it was neat to try and it's fun to show all my Happy Howlers that comic-y side to my art.

Oh, and if you're wondering, that weird looking Chevrolet-style symbol under my signature (I've had that paw print signature that long now!) is an indigenous symbol for "coyote." As for that motto, "The Paw is Law"?...Yeah, kinda lame and a whole lot o' haughty. Sorry 'bout that! :D
