Indiana Jones Post by jonpinto
Indiana Jones Post
So many people know that I am a huge Indiana Jones fan. I wanted to do a new piece with him and I wanted it to be a bit more than just his face this time. I have had such good response to my "newspaper" paintings (Superman, Spider-Man, Batman) that I thought I would try to use that as a theme again only that I figured that the Saturday Evening Post would be much more fitting for the time period that Indy lives in. Plus it let me play in two of my favorite illustrators sandbox. I surely didn't rush this one either as I slowly let it simmer as I worked out ideas and composition. I am really happy how this one came out.

I Still Love You. by jonpinto
I Still Love You.
Star Wars fever is at an all time high. The anticipation of the new movie is crazy and I am caught up in it like millions of others. I grew up with Star Wars. I was in the 3rd grade when it came out and it was less than a year after I lost my father. I have vivid memories of waiting around the block to get into the old Palace theater in Bergenfield, New Jersey with my mother and brother and then right after the movie walking over to County Discount where my mother bought two action figures for both my brother and I. One we could open right away and the other was put aside until later in the year. I chose C3-PO and Luke Skywalker. My brother got Darth Vader and a stormtrooper. When The Phantom Menace came out I was working in my first studio job after college and I went to see the movie with fellow nerds and artists and I bought toys at the local Wal-Mart and had them on my desk. I remember people talking endlessly about it and gathering around monitors when the trailers hit. We waited forever for those videos to load back then! So here I am just over a week until the new movie and I am now married with an 11 year old boy and I can't wait to sit in the dark theater with him while the the trumpets blare the now classic tune and a brand new crawl moves across the screen. Star Wars really has become more than just movies as the characters have transcended the generations and are prepared to do it again. When I saw the first full trailer to The Force Awakens, it was the familiar that I latched onto and felt re-connected with memories much like old friends. Seeing the Millennium Falcon flying again gave me chills but it was the quick scene of Han Solo and Leia that gave me goosebumps. I don't know the context of the scene yet, but I have hope.
Agent Carter by jonpinto
Agent Carter

Hayley Atwell really has turned the role into quite the career so far. And deservedly so in my humble opinion. Able to play a strong female lead like that character and still have her be a "lady" is no easy task even here in the day of political correctness. She makes the character work and enjoyable to watch whether you are a male or female.

Anyway, the character of Peggy Carter has been one of the most requested of me for quite some time now at the conventions and I was long overdue the actually sit down and correct that. My wife and I are both fans of the show and working on the piece was fun to do. I figured I HAD to have Steve Rogers in there so I opted for the "true" Steve Rogers.


Batman '89 by jonpinto
Batman '89
This movie was huge for me. I remember paying to see a movie I didn't care about because the Batman trailer was showing with it. I collected all the newspaper and magazine articles leading up to it. I even used me lunch hour from the bank I was working at to go buy tickets in advance the day it premiered for me and all my friends! Yes, you had to go in person back then. No internet for the masses yet. We ordered pizza and watched the 1966 movie as we ate before heading out to the movie theater. There must have been 12-14 of us. It was awesome!! The movie was fun as well. Looking at it now it may be dated as far as superhero movies are concerned but it really set the tone for what was to come. Hard to believe that Superman was 11 years earlier than this and it would be another 12 for Spider-Man. Kids have it good now.

So I made one artistic change. The bat symbol on the bat suit is not screen accurate for this movie as I always felt that they got it wrong. They must have felt that way as well as they fixed it for the sequel. No biggie really.

Spider-Gwen by jonpinto
Yup. Spider-Gwen. Honestly, that has to be the dumbest name ever for a superhero or comic book. It is. I am not saying that just to trash it so please just think about it for a moment before you get all defensive. I am going to admit that I really didn't know about her as I don't read many comics anymore and I usually follow the creators more than characters and I have not tried many "new" characters in quite some time. So whey did I draw this? Well, as fate would have it, I have been seated near Robbi Rodriguez twice in the past year and once (in Chicago), right next to him. We chatted a bit when he was not swamped with fans and he signed and gave me a copy of the first issue for free. Nice guy. It was months later before I actually read the book but it did look nice and I could not help but notice that there are SO many ladies out there that have been taken with the character and started to cosplay her in mass quantities! Plus I kept being asked if I had any Spider-Gwen art or planned on doing any. It wasn't until I was walking out of a convention that I was suddenly hit with the idea that I should do one and that I could use Emma Stone as the likeness. Seemed like a natural fit for me considering the work I have been turning out of late. I know that Emma is more than likely never to play the part again and if we see a Gwen Stacy in the movies again it will be played by another actress but she is currently in the conscious of the pop culture masses and who am I to not indulge that. Exactly! Plus, I could always update the picture should someone else ever take on the mantle! Ha!!
So I have added several versions of my art on Red Bubble that is available for purchase. Mostly tee shirts at the moment but that may change. Check it out!…
