The Joker, the Ray, and Power Ring...


The Ray (Modern Age, pre-DC Relaunch - Got my nerd degree right here, check it):

Silver Age Power Ring, of the Crime Syndicate of Amerika (Love this team!):

And I've been uploading work onto my account - all original art, black and white versions, so if you're interested in that sort of thing you can check out my work here: Craig Cermak at Comic Art Fans

Been very busy with lots of new commissions and comic projects - looking forward to sharing these new things with everyone!

Animal Man

Going into the vault for some new posts, until I catch up. Penciled and inked this awhile ago for a friend of mine, but recently added the colors. Big Animal Man fan, love what Grant did with him, and I really enjoyed the first issue of the new series by Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman.

I'm open for commissions; something similar to this would be $40. Be sure to send me an e-mail if you're interested in getting your own!

Conan of the Isles

One of the newest commissions I did earlier this week was a recreation of the cover to "Conan of the Isles," which was originally done by John Duillo. It features an older, greying Conan. I kept my older Conan pretty fit, but added more battle scars. I inked it traditionally and then added copic grey tones, followed by acrylic white. Pretty fun experimenting but I don't think I really got my Conan on, as profile shots are difficult for me.

Mini Art Dump

Art dump sounds gross. Nonetheless...

A couple pieces done for the sketchblog I'm a part of with other Kubert School alumni. Check us out here: Omega Sketch

A commissioned piece of Batwing and Knight (From Grant Morrison's Batman Inc saga) that I did a couple weeks back:

I'll post a little bit here and there over the next couple weeks until I catch up, and then I'm going to try to run this blog more smoothly. Be sure to follow my deviantart or tumblr as they are more up to date with my work!

Birds of Prey

Commission piece done recently for a very nice person I met through Tumblr and Deviantart. She frequently posts my work on there and I cannot thank her enough for her support. It introduces my work to more people so I'm grateful to her for doing so.

Vitruvian Underground Kickstarter

Did the Chicago Comic Con last weekend and had a great, though exhaustive, time. I pretty much drew commissions the entire time while selling prints and copies of VU #1.

For those interested, leftover copies of the first print of Ramon Villalobos and I's comic book are available in our online store here:

BUUUTTTT, there's also the Kickstarter campaign we just launched to help raise funds to get a bigger printing done of the first issue, which will include the main story and also a back-up story not included in that first printing. Through this bigger printing we hope to distribute to any comic shops that'll have us, put them on our online store as well as take them to various conventions, and through the sales of that print the second issue and so forth. The only way to make this possible is through the help of YOU!

So please, even if you don't donate (though even a dollar can be donated!), help us spread the word around about our book - a simple tweet, a facebook post, a tumblr post, any and all way of gathering attention via social media is strongly welcomed and encouraged.


PS Page 6 just went up this past week on our site, so be sure to check that out too!

Vitruvian Underground Web-Comic

My new weekly webcomic I am doing with a friend is now online. Been working on this for awhile and I'm very happy to have it up and running. While we'll be doing a webcomic, an actual physical copy of the whole first issue will be available in August. More on that later.

Vitruvian Underground Webcomic

For this week there will be two pages, the next one being on Thursday, and then it'll continue on Thursdays from this point on.

Also, like us on Facebook: VU on Facebook and follow our Tumblr: VU on Tumblr - Definitely an easier way to follow the updates we make, and wow there's going to be a bunch these next few weeks!
