New Kimmie & Mary Artwork!

Bookmark and Share

Nathan’s at work on brand-new Hollywood Vampires art, and he’s starting with Kimmie and Mary, in anticipation of the forthcoming Diary Of A Madwoman novella and Pathway To Darkness novel coming out this spring!

He’s been experimenting with a new style that’s reminiscent of his older work, but is fresh, flexible, and highly adaptable. It’s something of a departure from what he’s done in the past, more emotive — even cartoonier — and I’m really digging it. Just as my own writing style has changed over the years, Nathan’s continued to grow and shift in his own creative endeavors…

These are some pics he was working on last night, and sent to me via his cell phone, so these aren’t indicative of forthcoming finished work — I was so excited when I got ‘em, I just HAD to share them with you guys!

    I would have to say that Kimmie in profile certainly is my favorite. And it looks to be roughly the right shape to fill that space in my arm that is crying out for a mate for Mary. I do believe I approve!

    Sweet, glad you like — I know you’ve been patiently waiting for new Kimmie artwork forever!

    And these are the preliminaries, so just imagine what it’s gonna look like when Nathan REALLY gets going…

    There’s plenty more where these came from, especially with Pathway To Darkness just (FINALLY!) around the corner.

    Now you can get that other tattoo at long last, eh?

    Patience is probably my one virtue. Maybe I’ve got others, who the hell knows.

    Yeah, well, that’ll be the next tattoo. The ol’ lady and I have, I believe, made a pact that we will smite the debt daemon before going and getting more tats. But one never knows, maybe I’ll get one for a holiday between then and now, and I’m pretty sure Kimmie will be that one. :-D

    Well, your radio was really funny, I thought. Maybe that’s also a virtue — entertaining behind a mic?

    And Nathan’s already sent me a few more pics of Kimmie, and a GREAT one of her and Mary together — with more on the way, too, so before long you’ll probably be spoiled for choice.

    I’ll be gathering ‘em together and likely do another post on Monday or Tuesday — I’ll send out an e-mail to everybody when that happens!

    Or if you asked nicely, I bet he’d be happy to customize a pic for you, too — just so long as you sent us pics of the finished tattoo!

    they all look nice up there.. i also like the Blog layout, nice and clean.. and of course i love all the “faction” coloring (black and greys).

    i hope to have more of the good stuff for you sometime soon.. i’ve really been letting them spray out of my pencils and pens for a few days.. but i really do need to scan them and hike them up good and proper.

    i’ll be lurking about.
