Original CreeD Appletree cover in B/W

In 1999 I moved to California and worked in fashion for a while. In my free time I started to plan a return to CreeD with "Appletree". We only printed about 500 copies of the book.  So it didnt do too well. This was right before my run on Ghost Rider... which was the best selling comic of 2001.  So I think I had the WORST selling comic AND the BEST selling comic in 1 year. I think thats kind of a record of some kind.

Combo magazine cover

Back in the 90s there were these things called magazines. Anyway there was a comic book magazine called Combo. They were super cool to me and interviewed me and let me draw a cover for them.  I think this was in 1996.

Some old raver fairy art.

I didnt actually learn to paint in Photoshop. I learned digital coloring from Illustrator. About 1999 I did a series of fairy drawings in raver clothes. Ya, I had the 24 inch pipes too.

Even more bombshell

At some point Bombshell evolved into something a bit more Evangelion influenced.  You can clearly see the Yoji Shinkawa influence in the mech designs here. I did this after playing Metal Gear Solid 2 on playstation in 2001 or so.

Wait, I got more bombshell for ya...

Oh, theres absolutely NO metal Gear solid influence in THIS one. Jeeez... I feel like a blatant thief! Whatever, it was 2001... everything was stolen from somewhere.  Anyway this is more Bombshell stuff. After I traded in my Jncos and moved into a more serious look.

More Bombshell

This was drawn with ink and prismacolor markers before I knew how to use photoshop in 1997. Bombshell was always crawling out of the wreckage of a destroyed makeshift mech.

What the hell is bombshell?

I really wanted to draw mechs after doing Creed for a few years. So I started creating this character that was a superhot raver chick that assimilated the metals around her to create a mech that was unique to whatever environment she was in. Thus... Bombshell came to be. Or... did not come to be. I didn't do anything with this. It never became a book or anything at all.

Old TMNT comic book art. Unpublished, but still not bad!

I did this when I was just a lil kid of about 16 years old. I guess it was right about when CreeD came out. Anyway, I thought you'd like to see it. Drawn in 1993

Old Unused Ghost Rider art.

Here's an old image that you may or may not have seen from Ghost Rider. It's astounding to me how many pieces are hiding in my closet.  I inked this one myself. Although the amazing Danny Miki inked the entire series that I worked on for Marvel. This is from 2001.

I made a painting and recorded using the magic of video for you. Ever wonder how to paint in photoshop? -Trent
