 Gift of the Magi

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

One of the things I enjoy most about this blog is being contacted by other people who love Booster Gold and want to share their passion. Monday's cosplay pic was a good example of that. And today, I have another.

Jonny Michel got in touch recently to share his most recent commissions.

My girlfriend recently bought me a Booster Gold commission drawn by the artist Chris Giarrusso. He is famous for his work on G-Man and Mini Marvels. I'm a big fan of original art and his trading card sketches are super affordable between my girlfriend and I. She actually kept it a secret that she had bought one for me and surprised me with it!

That's a great story, Jonny. Your girlfriend sounds like a keeper!

Keep up the great submissions, people.

 All Hail Hale

Monday, September 25, 2017

After I asked last Monday about what your Booster Gold shrines looked like, Aaron Hale got in touch with me via Facebook. His office is like a museum for Booster Gold original art!

Check out these pics of some of his framed pieces. (Click any for a larger image.)

 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!

Sketch art 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.

Phil Hester draws Booster Gold for The Blot Says

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.

 The Man Can Draw

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

There was no post yesterday . . . because I screwed up my dates. Oops. (January has how many days this year?) Sorry. The following is the post that should have run yesterday morning. I hope it was worth the wait.

I posted a cover image by Kevin Maguire on Friday. I liked it so much, I'm going to start the week with a couple of recent Maguire commissions.

It has been nearly three decades since Justice League International made him a star, and Maguire's work is as good as ever!
