Victory! by Erik

December 8, 2011 in Uncategorized

This is an awesome drawing of Victory by my friend Erik Arreaga, you may know him online as 4•9 Guy (phour nyne)! This drawing came to me in the back of his amazing sketchbook sketch book, which was available this year at the San Diego Comic Con.

This book is filled with detailed illustrations and sketches, concepts and notes about the drawings and so much more.  Erik’s style harkens back to the 90’s era of comics that I loved so much with the reminiscent flavors of Sam Keith and Tod McFarlane (jut to name a few) but yet a unique dynamic that Erik can call his own.

Each page is filled with so much energy that is ignites the creative juices! The most inspiring of the segments of this book for me was the section dedicated to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Erik draws the dudes with such passion that you have to wonder whay Kevin Eastman hasn’t been banging on his door to get him to draw some serious Turtle hack & slash in the printed format!

Check out his stuff at these fine locations and let him know that E.J. sent ya, you’ll be better for it!
