Allan Quartermain and Mina Murray consummating their relationship, from THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, Vol. II, done for 30 ROCK's Scott Adsit.
I normally DON'T do erotica/pr0n/smut, but Scott Adsit heroically deserved this one.
When my wife Allison, recovering from surgery, needed help running the HeroesCon art auction this year, Scott stepped up to the plate and did a Man's Job. Scott's a gifted actor and comedian, but his secret superpower lies in the art of Improv. I thought he'd be a great onstage wingman for Allison (the auction runs 3-5 hours!), and in return I promised him whatever he wanted in one of his fantastic LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN sketchbooks. He has a Mike Mignola Mr. Hyde (I'm so jealous)!
Scott ran several ideas by me, and this is the one I picked. Who doesn't love Victorians writhing about in sin! My big regret? Allan's left hand is probably the best hand I've ever, ever drawn, and it's knuckles-deep in a Victorian music-teacher. Not really something you can show the kids.
Anyoo... thank you, Scott Adsit, for being a super guy and a great pal! Please check out his show FRANKENHOLE on Cartoon Network when you get the chance; I know you probably already watch 30 ROCK!
