The king of all Declan-gossip, Will Sliney, had a signing over here in Aberdeen during the weekend, and it was an absolute pleasure to see him. From what i saw he did some kick-ass sketches. At one stage, it was suggested he do a Punisher piece. I jokingly suggested that i could do a better piece than he, so of course, it became a competition between us. As does everything. Above's the fruit of my labour, check Will's blog to see his.

Who wins? YOU decide!

I decided to do something a bit different and went with a bit more of a biker approach to the Punisher

.....whereas Will decided to rip off Tim Bradstreet's approach. ZING!!!

It's Frank Castle gone Mad Max. Nice.

I don't know who wins but I know someone who'd want both!

You two always seem to do your best work when competing against each other.

How's work on Frankenstein going?

Stephen Mooney said...

Nice and moody, I like it. Is it me, or is more and more Sean Philips creeping into your stuff?

Declan Shalvey said...

Hey Rich, Frankie's goin' well, nearly at the 100 page mark.

Moondog, i dunno, not intentionally with the Phillips, tho i do love his work. I went loose with this piece, having more 'grey'. I think having stuff solid black and solid while makes my pages look stiff, so i'm trying to loosen up a bit with the inking.

While we're on the subject of Punisher, Declan, who do you think should follow Garth Ennis?
