Sneak Peek: Monkey Mod Comic Panel

If you've been listening to Art & Story, you've no doubt heard Mark Rudolph and I talk about a story for a comic anthology (Tales of Hot Rod Horror Vol.2) that we are working on. The comic we are working on will feature one of Mark's characters and my character Monkey Mod. This is a story we've been kicking around for a little while now and, with this upcoming comic anthology, we've been presented with the opportunity to do it, use our own characters, get paid for it, and retain our rights as creators. Dream come true? You betcha!

Today I thought I'd share a sneak peek of one of the panels from this comic. Its a small sneak peek and doesn't give anything away. But, I wanted to show it to sneak peek the newer, more cartoony look of Monkey Mod. I had been wanting to redesign him for some time now and this anthology story gave me the opportunity to do that now too.


  1. Oh Yeahzzzzzz!!!!!
    :) WOoooooOOOT!
    Dang! This is going to be fun!

  2. Wonderful. I like that he seems trapped somewhere between childhood and full-grown monkeydom.

  3. Thanks all! I dig his new look and he's much more fun to draw now too!

  4. Cool look for Monkey Mod.. don't take this the wrong way, but it reminds me of Chim Chim from the Speed Racer cartoons, which I never really cared for, but it works here, seriously. Haven't been able to listen to the podcast (any podcast for awhile), but hopefully will make up for that soon. Sounds like a cool project you and Mark have planned.
