I continue to think about a Legion of Super-Heroes television series, and how it would A) be so easy to create, and B) be a slam dunk for The CW. There’s also a C, but that requires Greg Berlanti to hire Matthew Peterson and me to run the show for him. When I think about LoSH, I also think about Gene Gonzales, who has created wonderful sketches of the team members over the years. Today, we present his take on Matter-Eater Lad.
There are a few artists that make repeated appearances in the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day, one of them being Mr. Gene Gonzales. Today we take a look at his take of the Good Ol’ Days of the Dibny’s.
Press Release A vast, unexplored, alien world of natural and scientific wonders. Jungles, deserts and arctic wastes teeming with bizarre and savage beasts, fantastic monsters that defy evolution or reason. A dazzling variety of warlike peoples, whom, despite obvious technological advances, still swear, live and die by the sword. Then, there’s the princess, of course.
Who doesn’t like Battle of the Planets? Sure, go ahead and make some comment about the real name being Secret Ninja Team Gatchaman, and be THAT GUY, or take the jump and see Gene Gonzales’ interpretation of Jun as Princess.
As the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises draws near, we’re seeing more and more Batman related stuff pop up on the Intardwebz. Gene Gonzales has an interesting take on Batman that combines bits and pieces of some of our favorite aspects of Batman through the years.
Gene Gonzales posts great stuff online each day, which is probably why he shows up on the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day so often. With DC’s New 52 nearing the end of the issue six run, it’s time to see what Gene can do with the redesigned Harley Quinn.
I like it when artists challenge themselves to do an original sketch a day. For some it might be a commission, for others it is a warm up. Whatever the reason, I’m more than happy to see what they are serving up. Today, it’s Gene Gonzales and his take on Hal Jordan.
