Venom (after Tom Lyle). 1995. Expresso Pen
and Sharpie on copy paper, 8.5 x 11".
... they want their Venom copy back.
Last week, I finally got the opportunity to draw Venom for Marvel Comics, something I've been dying to do for a long time. I can't reveal it just yet, so I thought I'd share my earliest attempts at the character, including some I've posted previously.
I copied the above image from my Maximum Carnage trade paperback when I was in eighth grade. However, I only recently realized that I had since met the artist, Tom Lyle, at SCAD. It being one of my favorite renditions of the character, I actually copied it twice, the second time including a basketball in his hand (he was practically begging for it).
The Tick and Venom (after Ben Edlund and Mark Bagley, respectively).

I'm going to be blogging "lite" for the next couple weeks (in other words, just pretty pictures) so that I can gear up for the Wacky Reference Week at the end of the month—I've got some surprises in store, believe you me. But before I shift gears, tomorrow we'll be celebrating with one more blast from the past.
