Molten Brothers

Here is some stuff that I've done for my good friends Kenny Richardson and Mike Goodwin (a.k.a. the Molten Bros.) over the years. They are both terrific guys and are making a lot of awesome stuff happen in the Phoenix art scene. Kenny likes comic art, so he would often have me do comic strips based on these two scruffy guys who are supposed to represent the Molten Brothers (although Mike and Kenny look nothing like this). Deck was a collection of skateboards painted by lots of awesome local and national artists. The concept here was that the guys get caught stenciling a wall and then they have to face this big ugly cop. I like the maniacal grin in the last panel.

This is the postcard I did for our first "Meanwhile..." show, a collection of comic-inspired artists at the 515 gallery. Kenny took the photograph, which was a local bus stop, and I illustrated over it. It's funny when I look back on stuff I colored digitally around this time, because I had this super dark monitor, so all the finished stuff looks waaaay too light.

Here's the strip from the postcard for the second "Deck" show. Definitely gotta view this one full-size to appreciate (this thumbnail looks terrible)...

And last but not least, the Molten Bros. logo. I really like how this looks in three colors. I'm not sure if Mike and Kenny ever put this on a t-shirt, but they probably should:
