So, I just had this idea in very rough form last week before leaving for what turned out to be a very disappointing convention appearance.  My intention was to possibly ink the piece while at my table, but so much time was eaten up just trying to hustle up some business that I didn't get to it.  However, yesterday I needed something to break up some of the monotony of another project.  So I inked on this a bit here and there, then took it home for my wife, Karin, to fill in the black areas on.  This morning I scanned it, did a few minor adjustments on it, and added the red in photoshop.  If I'd drawn this 30 years ago there would have been lines of fans asking me why I wasn't drawing DareDevil for Marvel.  Now such an image is as likely to get me snubbed by "woke" fans for "cultural appropriation".  As we said back in the 80s "whatever".

BTW the Kanji says "Samurai" but it's the version that means "Warrior Family".  I'm pretty happy that I was able to figure that out.

So, for fun, created this Maxfield Parrish homage (pastiche, whatever you like to call it) using only digital tools.  Artwork copyright James E. Lyle.  Likely will have this for sale as a print, since it turned out so nicely.

It's been a busy time since my last post, and I apologize for the delays.  Been hard at work penciling a new comic, "Nicaragua", as well as creating more illustrations for "Towers of Metropolis Volume 2".  Today I'm testing display for the upcoming X-Con in Myrtle Beach, SC, May 21-22 (I like to be packed and ready to go to shows at least a week ahead).  Hoping and praying that this display will bring more traffic to my table and result in more prints sold.  (I'll let you know if it has significant impact).

This is another illustration from "The Towers of Metropolis" volume 2, soon to be released by Airship 27--a company that produces New Pulp novels and anthologies.  I do these primarily for the fun of it, but with "Towers", I'm hoping that a lot of people get on board with the New Pulp movement.  I'm also a bit over-zealous since the cover for volume one was done by legendary comics artist Michael Kaluta--so I'm trying to be at least stay in the game, competitively speaking.

Prints seem to dominate my at-show sales. But some prints sell better than others. I'd like to streamline this process by involving you. So here's the deal: You invest $5 a month in a subscription, and you'll get first view of a number of potential prints (a minimum of 3 new potential releases per month). Based on your responses to these potential prints, I'll actually publish the top choice and you (as a subscriber) will have the chance to purchase the chosen print at a very discounted price--that is, $12 per print, signed and mailed, postage-paid directly from my studio. (Normally my prints go for $20 at shows, or on my website). If there's no clear consensus in a particular month, I may opt to release several prints, all with the same "first purchase option" for you, as subscriber.
