Judge, Jury and Executioner
This was a tough topic for me, as there are too many cool super heroes to choose from. In the end, I had to go with Judge Dredd... I first got into Dredd around 1986 thanks to the heavy metal band Anthrax, and their incredible song "I am the Law" from the "Among The Living" album. I started collecting the comics, and have been a fan ever since. this painting is based on a drawing by Brian Bolland, one of the most amazing comic artists of all time. I was hoping to get a chance to meet Brian at Comic Con last July, but for one reason or another I never got to. So forget about that travesty of a movie with Sly Stallone, and go pick up an early issue of Judge Dredd... Judge Death is possibly the coolest comic villain ever created... need to do a painting of him sometime soon. This one was painted with an airbrush.
