Subway sketches number four


Here are more subway sketches. I typically draw one page every day or two. NYC is the great melting pot of people, who needs aliens anyway.

Subway sketches number three


I seem to like to draw people in the winter more often than people in the summer. I think it's the layers of clothing that make everyone a little more interesting. Check back for more before the end of the year.

Subway sketches number one


I have been so busy lately with new projects and marketing of my graphic novel that I thought I would post a series of subway sketches to round out the year. So far, Prisoner of the Mind is rockin in the sales. If you haven't picked up your copy yet, you can buy one here on Amazon.com.

Looks Like The Producers at the Discovery Channel Read My Blog


My TV viewing of choice is either the Syfy channel or one of the Discovery Channels, History Channels, ID etc... I happened to be watching something on Discovery and ran across an ad for the new Bear Grylls TV series Escape From Hell. What do you know, it has a striking resemblance to my character which was drawn almost 15 years ago, and more specifically my limited edition sculpture titled "The End is Near." That just goes to show you that nothing on the internet is safe. Good luck Bear!

Box of angry Coles



Let the painting begin! I Just finished casting 10 pre-orders for the limited edition resin kit titled "The End is Near." I'm still working on the packaging, but should have the final kit ready for shipping next week. If you're interested in purchasing one email me at art@allanlinder.com. I am only making 20 copies and then the molds will be destroyed. The retail price is $99 + shipping. If you missed what this is all about, start here.

Basement Studio Clean Out!


Don't worry, I didn't forget about you. The basement studio I share with another talented artist was in desperate need of a clean out. (this is his side of the room) Sometimes you have to step away from the computer and focus on what's real. Anyway, these are the before shots of what we had to deal with. There was a lot of work to be done, including getting rid of an 18th Century coffin, moving all of my 100 or so paintings, and a room full of old silicone molds and sculpture.


It took a few weeks to repack everything and just to move stuff around.


I'll post some follow up photos of the work done down here soon. Stick around for more.


Obviously a bunch of unloved stretchers.


I also re-visited many of my old paintings that I haven't seen in years. Stored away in plastic, bubble wrap and cardboard, I had to let some of them out for a little while.


Part of a "Shock and Awe" series I did during wartime, which is pretty much all the time nowadays. (After Picasso)


Abstract album cover art.


Maybe i'll leave this one under the plastic sheets.

Celebrate what hides in the shadows.



Let the weirdness begin. In the spirit of the holiday that is upon us I will be posting some of my past artwork from various personal and professional projects that celebrate what hides in the shadows. Some scary and some, not so much. This first one is for a cover that I did for book coming out next year called "The Uncertainty".



Here's a panel out of a new title i'm working on.



It's dark in here. This is a rough back cover piece for a Sci-Fi story out in 2014.



I can't take it anymore. Just a rough sketch from my graphic novel that never saw the light of day until now.



Just a little something i'm working on for my next book.

Prisoner of the Mind, The End is Near limited edition resin kit

Drum roll please... The resin kit is finally cast!


After months of work on and off, (click here if you missed the prior posts.) it's here. The following photos are of the resin castings, so you can see how well the detail came out. Obviously, i'll have to trim and patch the seams before I prime and paint it, but all in all, the casting came out perfect thanks to the help of my good friend Eli Livingston.













Check back for the painted update and final box art for the Prisoner of the Mind Cole Maquette "The end is near" limited edition resin kit.

New York Comic Con 2013



It has finally arrived! I'm just one little head in a sea of people.


There are always a few costumes that make you smile.


...and then the hyper detailed ones.


Look at this packed house in the Artist Alley!


NYCC, is a mecca for very talented artists like Jason Metcalf.




Here's a shot of me and Geof Darrow, one of my personal favorite artists of all time. If you aren't familiar with his work, then you're missing out. He collaborated on a project in the 90's with Frank Miller called Hard boiled. If you want to see some insanely detailed artwork, you'll love this or Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, and of course The Shaolin Cowboy. So far, I've had some great interaction with the release of my Graphic Novel. Can't wait for next year.
