I can't really explain it, but Bettie Page had an influence on me in getting into artwork as much all the artists that I have admired through the years.
Growing up as a kid, I knew of her images. I just did not know her by name.
It wasn't until Dave Stevens started doing his Rocketeeer comic books that I was finally able to connect the name to the images. She's my all time favorite pinup chick. We sell alot of paintings of Bettie on our Ebay store: THE KASO COMICS ART GALLERY mostly by the LEGENDARY FANTASY ARTIST~ MARCUS BOAS(Painting on the top of this page is by Marcus)

Here's one of my newest freelance works. This is a cover to one of WAHEELA COMICS Titles: VERMILLION. Issue #3 or #4 I believe. This was originally penciled by SCOTT ROSEMA. I was only sent a copy of the pencils. I had to repencil it on a lightbox and then ink it. This was colored by GARY SCOTT BEATTY.

Here's a BLACK PANTHER drawing that I have done. This was strictly a study piece. This was done from a copy of a BRUCE TIMM piece. I repenciled it on a light box and then inked the whole drawing with markers. This is one of the rare times were I am using markers only! I mostly use brush and pen on my ink work.

My continuing frustration with Diamond comic book distributors has finally reached it's BOILING POINT! We just recently got back another rejection letter(this will now be the 4th rejection letter from them on 4 different titles from Kaso Comics, Inc. within the last few years) from Diamond on our current comic book graphic novel -THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN UNLEASHED! (Copy of this letter is on the right). Now it looks like they are in the art and writing critic business as well as distribution. They have now, THE BALLS to take upon themselves what we the public want to see in print as a comic book. WHAT BOGGLES ME IS THAT 2/3rds OF THIS BOOK WAS ALREADY
DISTRIBUTED BY THEM YEARS AGO!. So what kind of game are they playing here. I think it's about time we all started complaining and writing letters to our local congressman about this sole distributor of comic books who seems to have the monopoly on this industry and has decided for us what we the public want to see in print in comic books. Who does not have any desire or reguard to include the smaller independent press companies in their fat ass catalogs. My biggest disappointment is in this Steve leaf character over at Diamond. I can go on and on, but what's the point. THE POINT IS WE ALL NEED TO START AND WRITE TO OUR LOCAL CONGRESSMAN AND COMPLAIN ABOUT THESE BASTARDS. THEY THINK THEY GOTTEN SO BIG NOW, THAT THEY HAVE DECIDED WHAT WE THE PUBLIC WANT TO SEE IN A COMIC BOOK.
Welcome to my new blog.
I'll be writing and listing images from Kaso comics, my freelance work plus life's experiences. My Kaso company is very busy right now. We have the NEW INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN graphic novel coming out in December. Plus we will be putting out our FIRST WEB COMIC BOOK: MATT BURTON-AGENT ZERO as well. I'll be out of town all of next week, but will be listing a weekly blog starting the first week of December.
