Indiana Jones

INDIANA JONES. 2017. Gouache on paper, 9 × 12″.

This is the final commission from NYCC 2016. Feels good to be done, but... I think the next NYCC will be here before we know it.

I've got some new things in my online shop (some of them old). Might add a couple more signed comics at random times this week, so stay tuned.

(And for those of you waiting on my TMNT prints, I probably won't get to selling those until after Comic Con Revolution on May 13... got a bunch to finish before then.)

My dad, Joe Rivera, will be at the Daytona Beach Comic Convention this Sunday, April 23. He'll have some artwork on display, prints to sell (some signed by me) and will be happy to sign your books. (Lately, he's been making more comics than I have!) Have a great weekend!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 338

HELLBOY AND THE B.P.R.D.: 1953 #3 P. 14. 2016.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

All I really needed from this reference was the left hand, which did the trick for both panels on this page. And you may notice I forgot to draw Hellboy's tail, so I just added it digitally. And for those of you who are getting a sizeable tax refund, the original art is still available.


Oh, look, there's my wife!

Captain America: Mary Jane?

CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS #18 (MARY JANE VARIANT).
2017.Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Marvel emailed me asking for Mary Jane as Captain America. How could I say no? The cover is an homage to Captain America #2 which, much like #1, features a certain dictator.

Also, just a reminder, our Daredevil commission will be up for sale today at 1pm PST. Have a great weekend!

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 337

CURSE WORDS #3 VARIANT COVER. 2017.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

This came out a couple weeks ago, but you should still be able to find it. I didn't take any photo reference for this one, but I used my mirror to get the hands right, my mannequin to try out different poses and angles, my 1:6 scale shoes, plenty of koala reference I found online, and some sweet Ryan Browne art.


Google "koala hands." I had no idea.

Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 336

BLACK PANTHER #12 Variant Cover. 2016.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

This is the last of my Black Panther connecting covers (and really, what the whole series was leading up to). The head is based on Makonde sculpture, which is definitely worth a look. Wakanda is, of course, a fictional country, but I took a much of my inspiration from Tanzania and the surrounding area.

The Thing (and Other News)

THE THING. 2016. Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

Happy Monday, folks! Hope you didn't lose too much sleep this weekend.

For those of you who have been asking, I'll be attending Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, CA on May 13. I'll start a commission list for the show about a month before.

I'm also planning on expanding my online store toward the end of the month. I'll have 5 commissions that my Dad inked and colored, as well as some limited edition prints from Sideshow, plus lots of other goodies. Stay tuned!
