Cho's Super Con ART AUCTION piece
San Jose Super Con Weekend!!!

I'll be at San Jose Super-Con this weekend. ( www.super-con.com )

As many may know, every year there's a huge art auction at San Jose Super-con. Many of the guests ink over blue line penciled images by our favorite artists, past and present. The convention auctions off the finished pieces to benefit charity and Super-Con.

This year's penciled pieces were by Jack Kirby (Captain America), Mark Schultz (Dino Girl), Alex Ross (Poison Ivy) and Bill Morrison (Lady Robotika).

I chose to ink over Jack Kirby's Captain America.

It's not every day that you get to ink Jack Kirby so I went a little crazy, spending way too much time on it. Here's the finished result.

Here's also a link to the San Jose Super-Con art gallery where you can see other artists ink job over Jack Kirby.

The actual art auction of the displayed art will be held at San Jose Super-Con this weekend on the show floor.

... Frank, just lovely work, but I gotta say: fantastically evocative and executed skull...

... (each part is excellent, and the whole reminds me of Steranko, but the skull really 'works' for me)...

At first I couldnīt believe it when I read that you chose Cap over Poison Ivy and Dino Girl (donīt know who that is, but the name alone makes it an obvious Cho motive), then I saw the finished image and all was forgiven (or almost all, the girl takes up way too little of the image).

Arrgh.. I wish I could be there to bid on some of these auctions... mind you I would also need money to actually bid with. LOL

I love what you did with it Frank. Your art is always phenomenal. But what I like the best is that you added to it and changed it up. Where is most everybody else just inked what was there.

Great Job!

Awesome piece Frank, it got more views then the other stuff on the San Jose Super Con website butt . That skull in the picture reminds me of the Adult Swim show The Venture Brothers.
