Over the years, the “V” in my signature has evolved into a sort of horn-headed petroglyph. Fans of my Crypto Zoo will know why. A while back I thought it might be fun to give a body to the head and this is how he came out.
Cory Sedimeier, who is editing the Marvel Miracleman editions, has dug up a treasure trove of archival stuff from the Eclipse archives. He passed along these xerox’s of my pencils on the project. Its wild to see them after 29 years! Here’s pages 11 and 12 from Miracleman #10.No comments

Long time no blog! Thanks for all the emails wondering if I was okay. The short answer is yes, I’m better than ever. I got out of the habit of daily blogging and need to get back into it to share some of the interesting stuff I’ve been doing.
For starts, here are the pencils to my cover for Miracleman #9 just solicited from Marvel. More soon; I
Arthur Magazine is reporting sales of the new issue, #34, are going gangbusters a week BEFORE the official release. They’re so low on inventory they’ve taken the unprecedented move of cutting off wholesale orders and making the issue available direct to readers only through their website. Inventories of the previous launch issue, #33, with my cover and interview, are
down to their last fifty copies SOLD OUT! So if you want to see what all the commotion is about and experience Arthur’s insanely huge format, you need to act fast. The Arthur Store is right here.
My brother, Michael Veitch, a singer-songwriter of some renown; has just released a new collection of his Vermont themed tunes. He asked me to do the art for the release and here’s how the download card came out. He’s giving a couple songs away as a free download. Just head over to www.Distrophonix.com and use the code 1WWHT3IV to redeem the goodies.
Mars Will Send No More is in the throes of a Veitch/Rock retrospective. They’ve been running scans of complete short stories I did for Sgt. Rock during my student days. The above splash is from THE COLLECTOR with a script by Bill Kelley (who I believe posed for the grinning corpse robber character). Note the hash pipe in the guy’s helmet band.2 comments
This is an illustration I collaborated on for an upcoming play in New York City titled STAND-UP TRAGEDY. The story concerns a teen-age kid in the Lower East Side during the 1980′s dealing with problems at home and problems at school. The kid has some art talent and an active fantasy life built around his own superhero creation, SAGA but he’s up against some powerful negative forces. The play was written by Bill Cain and will be performed April 13 through May 4 at Nativity Church, 44 Second Avenue in NYC. Tickets and information here.
The illustration is a collaboration between myself and Manny Skerret, a talented young student. I came up with the design and did the outer panels while Manny perfectly captured SAGA as he inhabits the lead character’s teen age imagination. Manny is also doing art and animations that will be incorporated into the performance.No comments
