Confidential Cover

By Ted Naifeh  //  Sketchbook  //  9 Comments

Some folks complain about Batman: Confidential, that it’s not in continuity, but to me, that’s a strength. I like the idea of little side stories in the Batman world. Plus, You can clearly get away with more, as evidenced by issue #18.

Streets of Gotham Cover

By Ted Naifeh  //  Sketchbook  //  3 Comments

Frankly, it’s late enough I have no idea whether this one is awesome or crap. Please be kind. Also, as you can see, I’m not a serious designer, so forgive the imperfect logo designs. I mainly just want them to evoke a feeling.

Detective Cover

Here’s my second attempt. As per someone’s critique, I changed the logo for this one to make it a Detective Comics issue, which got me thinking all pulpy. Then I kinda went nuts. Enjoy.

Snow and Bigby from Fables. I haven’t read Fables, so I really can’t figure out what signifies these two. I may start again.

Based on a pic of Joan Crawford I have in my apartment.

Here comes more Batman

I feel the rumblings from the cave. I think that big black beast is firing its engines and preparing to leap through the waterfall. Check it out.

Another successful D-Con

By Ted Naifeh  //  Blog Post, Sketchbook  //  11 Comments

If you’ve never been to Dragon-Con, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s non-stop parties, amazing guests, amazing things to buy, and best of all, amazing fans in amazing costumes. It’s the only festival I know where the main attraction is the other attendees.¬† Those who consider Dragon-Con to be Comic-Con’s poor relation simply don’t get it. Dragon-Con is Comic-Con’s exotic, bohemian cousin, living free in Paris and dating can-can girls.

Here’s a selection of commission¬† sketches from last weekend. Enjoy. Photos courtesy of Lan Pitts.
