MADMAN & JOE
This was a piece done for Chad Blakely's Madman collection. It's painted with acrylic, which is a medium I rarely use, sized at about 10 1/2" X 18 1/2". The size made it a little difficult to scan/photograph, but here is the best shot we have of it.

At some point, I'm supposed to do a piece for Mike Allred to run in the Madman Atomic Comics series.
