This groupshot pretty much apes one that I did a few weeks back. That one- the earlier one, was done on tone paper and this one shown here is going to be done in color. The drawing here went a little quicker than I thought- I'm sure basing it on a previous piece of art allowed me to go at it without a lot of positioning of characters and composition concerns.
It's occurring to me that, once colored, this might make a nice piece to turn into a print to sell at shows next year. When finished, I'll post the color version.


  1. No joke, I think this is the coolest thing you've ever posted, Jim. I'd love a print of this.

    Speaking of prints, I thought that the Jake Black benefit prints would become available via web for people who couldn't attend SDCC. Would you happen to know anything about that?

  2. I love this.

    I am impressed how each Turtles individual personality, is represented so well in there facial expressions.

    Can't wait to see the finished product and I really do hope you turn it into a print as I would love to buy one!!

  3. i love this group shot - it seems that your work looks better by the day. cant wait to see the finished product

  4. Turtle-riffic! Almost seems like it could be a promotional piece for the 25th Anniversary "Shellebration".

  5. I just checked with Dan regarding the Jake Black print and the word is this- the JBP was and remains a San Diego con exclusive. Gary (Richardson) sold them there with that proviso and, in order to stay true to that, there will be no internet sales of that print.
