Sgt. Gorilla Commission
Apes with guns!
Ever since I drew this piece I think I’ve developed a deep longing desire to draw apes. I love drawing gorillas, chimps, pretty much any kind of monkey now.
The crazy thing is that I don’t consider myself a fan of drawing fur or lots of hair. But I can’t get enough of these guys.
This particular piece really comes together in the dead-center of the page with the gorilla’s face. I couldn’t have asked for a better focal point.
As usual with these types of commissions I hand inked the masthead and really had a lot of fun there. I think that if DC were to ever to ask me to draw Sgt. Gorilla, it would probably be one of those comics I just could not turn down.
