Random from DARK DISNEY



I work with "traditional" media. That means when I create art there is a physical canvas, sculpture or piece of paper with me all over it.

In answer to a number of recent inquiries here is my business pitch.

My idea of a "request" is a commission to create art for money (in US Dollars). Please do not ask me to draw something unless you are willing to pay for it up front.

My standard comic convention rates are as follows:

$10.00 monochrome sketch card
$15.00 color sketch card
$20.00 for 8.5 X 11 sketch
$35.00 for a "simple" 8.5 X 11 1 character color work

(all plus postage)

More ellaborate commissions are negotiated on a per case basis.

double @ price if you want "mature" content i.e. nudity
I do not do hard core or kinky stuff.


Which category of my works would you like to see more of?

Ten Minutes After Impact by LEXLOTHOR
Ten Minutes After Impact
More of my astronomical and space travel art can be seen in my DA "Space Art" gallery:…

I previously posted a picture of the ancient "Snowball Earth" as seen from the vantage point of a comet about to collide with it:…

Around 650 million years ago the earth was entirely covered by ice. Known as the period of the "Snowball Earth" the seas were glazed in pack ice all the way to the equator. All of the landmasses were clad in continental glaciers.

Here I hypothesize the collision of the first fragment of a large comet at the moment of impact with the frozen surface of the Earth. The ten kilometer wide impactor has already vaporized. Translating a kinetic punch of fifty kilometers per second into heat, ground zero is now a pool of molten rock hundreds of kilometers in diameter and tens of kilometers deep. The kilometer thick ice sheet beneath the point of collision was vaporized into plasma. The ejecta plume has risen to a height of 500 km. Its diameter is equivalent to that of the moon. Billions of tonnes of molten rock are arcing back to Earth on suborbital trajectories. Each speck is a slug of lava the size of a mountain.

The seismic shock propagating through the Earth's crust are shattering the upper lithosphere in concentric waves. Snowball Earth's global glaciers are so thin in comparison that they rise kilometers into the air and ablate into water vapor. each fleck of ice along the wave front is the size of a city. The winds are hypersonic, reaching perhaps Mach 5. 

The tremendous heating and vast turnover of atmospheric gases caused by an impact could have abruptly ended the ice house conditions of the Cryogenian. What might have been an "extinction event" in later ages of the planet's history may have actually improved the conditions for the evolution of multicellular life.

Steampunk Hamsters VIII

More of my steampunk hamsters can be seen in my DA "LEXY WORKS" gallery:…

This card was previously posted as "Steampunk Doodle 2". When I started to include hamsters in similar drawings they began to sell. So I have added eight little hamsters to this industrial setting. Check out the ones doing the limbo under the drive belt. There is also a pair "balls to the wall" on the steam governor.

Jinx's Rose by LEXLOTHOR
Jinx's Rose
More of my Teen Titans art can be seen in my "Comicbook Characters" gallery:…

A number of years ago I did I set of portraits of four of the female characters from the "Teen Titans" animated series. Each was drawn on a sheet of colored matte paper. I rendered Jinx on a carnation pink background. I used a very impressionistic style in pastels. Fans at comic cons don't seem to appreciate subtlety. They seem to prefer vivid color saturated art.

I have entirely repainted Jinx with acrylics and markers to intensify the colors and bring out greater contrast and more vibrant color. Perhaps this new version will sell.

Twin Crabs by LEXLOTHOR
Twin Crabs…

It is not uncommon to find individual fossil crustaceans in Neogene marine deposits along the coasts of the Pacific Northwest. These two crabs of the species Portunites triangulum were discovered together in the same nodule. Each specimen is about 10 cm in width. They are of Late Oligocene age from the Lincoln Creek Formation. They are now in the paleontology collection of the Burke Museum at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Journal History

At the end of 2014 I look back at some of the high points for science fiction and fantasy entertainment in movies and television. I am not engaged in gaming so that doesn’t appear on my radar. So in no particular order here they are.


Gotham is the best new television series on the year that I have seen. It is respectful to the "Batman" legacy and the desires of the fans. I consider it to be a better treatment of the material than the recent cycle of Batman movies directed by Christopher Nolan. Yes, this show is very dark. Even though we see many of the Batman characters as youths, this show is NOT for kids. The writing is kept at a high level. The bad guys all appear to have been carefully crafted according to research into abnormal psychology. The Penguin is cast as a textbook sociopathic personality. It is also fun to see Alfred Pennyworth as a character closer to the original "Equalizer" than the new Denzel Washington movie. This is the one show that I look forward to every week.


The new Flash series is okay. Its not particularly good, but it isn’t bad. I remember the 1990 TV series. It was entertaining and low budget. This new incarnation is better made, but not as engaging. I can pass on this one.

The Librarians

I ask myself why one network cancelled "Warehouse 13" so that another network can create a clone of "Warehouse 13"?

The Strain

Eh-ooooo! Too gross for me.

Rick and Morty

I stumbled across this oddity by accident. I want to like this obvious rip off of the Doc Brown / Marty McFly relationship from the "Back to the Future" movies, but it just doesn’t click for me.

Mr. Peabody

After the terrible aborted reboots of "Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "Boris & Natasha" I had great trepidation about this latest resurfacing of a Jay Ward property. I was delighted to find that it was both fresh and fun.

The Hobbit (part zillion)

Only the first five minutes of the final Hobbit movie bear any resemblance to the Tolkien novel. What followed was two hours of absolute mayhem that made my teeth ache. There was a lot of frenetic activity but very little substance. Several big stars appear on screen for only a few minutes. This final glimpse of Middle Earth was like listening to the air wheezing out of an abandoned bagpipe.


I have already devoted a special review to eviscerating this bloated and pretentious over production. For those who understand where I am coming from do the words "conservation of angular momentum" mean any thing to you?

Guardians of the Galaxy

At least this movie was aware of its own material and didn’t take itself too seriously. I am far more accepting of wretched excess when the tongue is firmly in the cheek. It was reasonably good entertainment. The premise is very familiar, a bunch of oddball outlaws fly around the galaxy in a hotrod of a spaceship. I once reflected that "Farscape" was "Blake’s Seven" with a budget. GOTG is "Farscape" with a mega-budget. I did like the racoon and his woody pal. SPOILER ALERT: I didn’t sit through the credits to see the sneak peek at the end, but I encountered it on the internet. Back when Disney acquired BOTH Marvel Comics and the George Lucas inventory it occurred to me that the company had grabbed the comic book AND the movie rights to "Howard the Duck". Film afficionados may recall that "Howard the Duck" was the worst movie that Lucas ever made. It has become an industry synonym for epic failure. Is Disney actually considering a relaunch of the Titanic?

How to Train Your Dragon II

I liked most of this film. It had some genuine heart to it. Hiccup trading a father for a mother didn’t make much sense. Did Gerard Butler want out of the franchise or what? The quality of the animation was excellent. It follows the television series that I consider to be the best animated show in TV history. It was good to see that the kids are being allowed to grow up. I suppose there will be a third instalment in the future. I hope that Dreamworks will maintain the high standard of quality.


As a big Maleficent fan going back to the original 1959 "Sleeping Beauty" I had much trepidation about this live action retelling. It was not the back story that I would have written for the Dark Fairy but it was an adequate one. This film resembles the Disney "Narnia" films in some ways and it was actually better.

Captain America The Winter Soldier

These Marvel epics are just becoming too ponderous to sit through. I want to like this film, but the endless mindless action sequences just become tedious. I actually prefer the companion television series "Agents of Shield" to the feature films.

Agents of Shield

This is a satisfying series that actually has likeable characters. The one disturbing feature is that when some major shift occurs in the Marvel movie universe, this series has to change its format to keep up. As a fan of the soon to be revised "Man from UNCLE" TV series I appreciate the homages that Joss Whedon makes to its source material.

X-Men Days of Future Past

This one suffers from the same affliction of trying to do too much in one movie that most of the other Marvel films have. It was clearly intended to be seen by fans over and over again in order to catch everything. I could barely sit through one viewing. Since when did Kitty Pryde have those extra powers? It had a stellar cast and lots of impressive special effects. So why did I find that last three minutes of the film were the best three minutes of the entire X-Men franchise? It is because the ending erased everything that had violated comic book canon in the four previous movies!
