“Hellboy” 5.25” x 7.25”, ink, gouache, and graphite on paper. (collection of Mike Mignola)

I’m a HUGE Hellboy fan, so you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to be a part of the Hellboy 20th anniversary show at Hero Complex Gallery. I had a lot of fun figuring out how my version of Hellboy would look, but I have to admit, I did approach the stylization with a bit of apprehension. After all, how do you improve an icon? Well, ya don’t. I just did my take. I hope it does the character justice.

Happy Birthday Hellboy and thank you Mike Mignola for creating something so wonderful.
