Monster Hunter: The Comic
During the early 1990's I was a partner in a small design studio known as Zillion Concepts. We did Illustration, toy design and protyping service work for a variety of toy, model kit and collectors product companies around the world. I myself not only did concept sketches and marker roughs, but sculpted prototypes and tooling ready models as well. My clients included companies such as: Hasbro Toys, Kenner Toys, Oddzon/Captoys, Ertyl Collectables, Polar Lights, Playing Mantis, American Greetings, and N2Toys to name a few. I worked on toy lines and model kits based on such entertainment properties as: Star Wars, Godzilla, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, The Universal Monsters, The Mummy, Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow ect. These were fun and prosperous years, and a very creative time in my career. I look foreward to posting some of my work from this era of my life on this blog in the near future.
At this time I began work on a line of toys based on a character I created named Monster Hunter. Here is a seven page introductory story I wrote and penciled. The fabulous inks were done by my good friend and fellow illustrator at Zillion Concepts, Jim Elliott.
More on Monster Hunter later...
