It’s Abe Sapien Month at Multiversity! To see all sorts of Abe content, like our “Evolution of Abe Sapien” contest, fantastic original art, interviews and more, click here.
To celebrate our “Evolution of Abe Sapien” art contest, which gives every fan with some ambition and a modicum of artistic talent a chance to have their work published in an issue of “Abe Sapien: Dark and Terrible,” as well as take home a complete set of Hellboy Library Editions, we decided to bring in some ringers, to show us how they interpret everyone’s favorite fish-man. We will be posting pieces each day for this entire month, so come join us for 31 Days of Abe!
All this week, we will be featuring artists who are part of Ashcan Allstars, a sketchblog with a weekly theme. Prior to this week, we shared Abes by Tyler Crook and Moritat, both of whom are Ashcan gents, but this week we have even more Ashcan pals contributing pieces. Please check out their site for some great upcoming themes (Manhattan Projects! Beetlejuice!), and check back every day this week at 2pm EST for more from Ashcan Allstars!
Tony Shasteen’s machine gun-toting Abe comes to us from outside of Atlanta, GA. Tony has illustrated such works as the graphic adaptation of Stephen King and Peter Straub’s “The Talisman,” as well as “Burn Notice” and “Flashpoint: Deathstroke and the Curse of the Ravager” for DC Comics, and “The Occcult Crimes Taskforce” for 12 Gauge/Image, to name but a few. Make sure to check out his deviantArt page (especially this amazing tribute piece to Dave Brubeck), his website, pick up some of his original art from Cadence Comic Art and follow him on Twitter (@TonyShasteen).
