 Ever-Loving Gold-Eyed Thing

Friday, June 23, 2017

The king of Booster Gold journalism, Russ Burlingame, recently changed his Twitter profile picture from his face to something more Boosterrific. When I asked him about it, he was kind enough to direct me to the original. Behold this Thing!

The Thing as Booster Gold (and H.E.R.B.I.E. as Skeets) by Joel Carroll

This Joel Carroll drawing of Benjamin Grimm and H.E.R.B.I.E. (both of Fantastic Four fame) cosplaying as Booster Gold and Skeets — complete with Kirby Krackle™! — was a commission for Burlingame from his friend.

What else can I say? Russ has some great friends!

You can see more of Joel Carroll's work at JoelCarroll.com .

Matthew Cain recently acquired this commission from artist Jeremey Treece (of "I'm So Goth" web comics and JeremeyTreece.com):

Some great details were definitely lost when I shrank the original scan down for inclusion here, so I recommend you visit ComicArtFans.com to see it embiggened. So much fun!

 A Man For All Seasons

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

The Blot's Booster Gold sketchbook grew by one at Houston's Comicpalooza last weekend. Check out this commission from Kevin Maguire:

Booster looks so serious. No doubt, he's just as frustrated by his prolonged absence from comic books as we are.

Here's a Maguire Booster sketch from happier times:

Obviously, Booster's happier in the high collar. Aren't we all?

This second commission comes from Matt Santori, who shared his commissioned sketch on Twitter in 2013. It's four years old and still looking Boosterrific!

 Blue and Gold and Blue

Monday, April 10, 2017

Over the weekend, I spotted a pretty cool drawing of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle by Joe Rubenstein. Before I could post it today, the owner sold it and removed it from the site. Drat! That's two consecutive posts ruined by takedowns! The Internet giveth, and the Internet taketh away.

Therefore, I offer instead for your viewing pleasure this sketch cover of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle and Blue Devil by Paris Cullins!

As you can see, that's not Booster's normal costume. But then, Booster is the only character of the three that Paris Cullins didn't draw for DC in the 1980s, so I think we can forgive him.

You can see a larger picture in Arthur Chertowsky's gallery at Comic Art Fans.

 The Blot's Sketchbook Adds Phil Hester

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

It's been a while since we last saw The Blot's sketchbook, but he's back to add this commission he got from Phil Hester at Bedrock City Comic Company in Houston, Texas last October.

I particularly love that Hester has drawn Booster's original hollow star logo!

You can see more commissions in The Blot Says' Booster Gold Sketchbook on Flickr.com. Thanks for sharing, Blot.
