It’s no secret I’ve been crushing on Deimos big time lately. I’ve truly rediscovered the joy of drawing this big purple guy! I just finished this illustration of him lifting weights, and it occurred to me that it would make a great promo poster for next year’s new Deimos anthology series, “Tales of the Taro Demon”.
Each issue of “Tales of the Taro Demon” will contain up to three self-contained short stories featuring Deimos. Almost all of them will be written by me, and some will be illustrated by myself as well as other artists such as David Cantero, Alessio Slonimsky and Martin Chan, just to name a few. Since I can’t get enough of Deimos — and neither can his fans — this new title oughta make a lot of people pretty happy!
One of the stories I’m personally cooking up for “Tales” is called “Demon Sport”. For fun I put together a little promo poster for that one too. I guess you can say that as much as 2015 was the year of Space Cadet, 2016 will be the year of the Taro Demon!
As for Deimos getting all sweaty working out, I had a lot of fun drawing this one. Hernán Cabrera and I did the final colors and, overall, I think the Taro Demon looks pretty inviting all pumped up like this. Ha Ha! Makes me even more excited about his up-coming spin-off series. Hope you enjoy this new illustration, and the news regarding “Tales of the Taro Demon”.
Cheers, my friends! Patrick 😀
