Yep it's me.
I stopped illustrating comics for awhile and ended up working
in L.A. on storyboards for film and tv. These where in my sketch
book before i left and thought i'd post them.
Cool site by the way.

Just 'doodles', you say?

They're fantastic, especially the two of Logan.

Mr. Byrne I like how Logan is different then you use to draw him. I like this version a bit more then how you use to there is more character in his face

Just so you can all see the odd things that drift thru my mind as I sit at the drawingboard --- sharper eyes may have noted some erasing around the standing figure doodle. Here's the whole image:

Now -- who among you can guess what famous Sci-Fi tale I had in mind as I did these character sketches? All four are (at least in my mind's eye) from the same story.

alas I don't read very much sci fi so I will just take a guess it's from

Hitchhikers guide . I  choose that because having seen you discuss it lately Mr.Byrne but i really haven't a clue

These "doodles" and a few more would make a great companion to the BABES sketchbook from MOC, JB.  For anyone here who hasn't picked up a copy, do so asap.  Very nice work.

Just to save bandwidth, let's not have guesses that are just guesses. I'm tossing out a challenge here! I don't want folk just rattling off titles until they hit the right one. Justify your guesses!

Holy #$#@, that's a great Wolverine! It's just criminal that you're not working for Marvel at the moment.

humbling to put these up after JB's, but these are a couple things i had recentally scanned in:

 

the Penguin was just for a guy i know who likes Penguins, i did the Citizen V really fast for a friend who was complaining about how he commisioned a Citizen V from an artist (who shall go unnamed - mainly because i never heard of him and don't want to misremmeber the name) and still hadn't gotten it after 2+ years of waiting

BTW, sorry for the delayed reaction, but on a second glance I'm getting a
serious JRjr vibe from your first Wolvering sketch.

Excellent work, Anthony -- but would you mind
reducing them? If you check the "rules" you'll find we
like to keep images to about 600 pixels wide at 100
dpi, to lessen the need for side-to-side scrolling.
