My recent trip to Heroes
Con 2005 was recounted here,
but now that I've posted my art pick-ups in my Stallone
Gallery, I thought that I should also provide links
not only on the SZ [for Stallone fans], but
also here in the ZONE for my blog and comic
My first piece posted, by Steve
was actually one that I got at MegaCon
2005 when Steve was sketching for the
Rick Leonardi was the first artist I
approached at Heroes 2005. I'm a
long-time Leonardi fan and was very
pleased that he agreed to draw Rambo
Walker surprised me with this
fun sketch of Sly as Lincoln
Over the Top. As a bonus, Brian even
through in [or is that drew in] Bull Hurley!
What a great gift!
Mike Ploog was an artist that drew
some of my favorite childhood comics.
I couldn't pass up a chance at a freebie
from Mr. Ploog and love
his take on Jack Carter.
I loved Nat Jones's work with Steve Niles
on The Nail. Nat was one of the artists
really wanted to try and get something from
at Heroes. You can imagine how happy I was
when he agreed to draw Cobra.
Gary McKee and I have been talking about
him doing a piece for my Stallone gallery for a
while. I was extremely happy when he agreed
to do me a water color piece. I was even happier
when I saw the
Let's cut to the chase. Casey Jones did
one of the finest Stallone sketches I have
yet to receive. He hit a homerun, raised the
bar, use whatever metaphor you'd like...

and... see for yourself!
I knew that my sketch from Cliff Chiang was going
to be very good. How could it not be, it's Cliff
What I didn't know was that Cliff was going to follow
Casey Jones' lead and create one of my all-time
favorite pieces. Not only did Cliff add Adrian
to the mix,
but he also captured the essence of their characters. Wow!
If you've read this far, you're a true fan of Stallone,
comic art or both. Either way, let me give you a heads-up...
yesterday I received a piece of art for my Stallone
gallery from an artist whose work I've admired
for years. I never dreamed that I get something from him,
since he rarely goes to conventions or sketches
for fans. I'm still in shock. The piece was a
gift and is so nice. I'll add it to my gallery
in a day or two after I quit staring at it.
Anyone want to comment on my latest sketches or
take a guess as to who the mystery artist
