Final inks over John Romita’s pencils for the cover to Supergirl #80. Back in 2002, the then editor of the book called me up, and said she had a cover for me to ink, and that the penciller has specifically requested for me to ink it. “OK, so who’s the penciller?” I asked. “John Romita” she said. “Oh of course I’ll do it! Anything for John!” I said. Perhaps one day I’ll find the photocopy of the pencils and be able to post them.

Quick morning Zen Brush sketch of Jessica Rabbit. Why Jessica? The random lines I started with just seemed to indicate Jessica. About 5 or 10 minutes. I had a few redos on the hair.
A young lady came up to my table at MegaCon and asked if I could do a sketch of the House of Mystery. After I made sure that she wanted The House, and not Cain or Fig or somebody else, I set off to work. Not a bad little sketch.Gotta try and find out who originally designed The House…
I’ve always wanted to compile a complete list of my published works, but work and life (and laziness) has always kept me from doing it. The job itself is so daunting that I would probably never do it. But, the folks at Comics.org has an amazing database of comics, comic creators, etc etc. So the complete (almost) list of my works is there! 895 works! Here’s the link to the chronological works by Jose Marzan Jr.! Still don’t know why the few pages I inked over Steve Ditko on Speedball aren’t listed. Maybe I didn’t get credit in the book… it was late… it was only about 3 pages… and those things use to happen in those days. No credit that is. Here’s the cover to Kickers Inc. #5 I inked over my friend Alex Saviuk way back in 1987!
Putting final touches on Yorick Brown and Ampersand (Y: The Last Man) painting for MegaCon. The original drawing (ok sketch) was scanned in , and then the painting was completed in Corel Painter, with a few touches in Photoshop. Giclee prints coming soon.
Cropped head Zen Brush sketch.
I was watching Star Wars and Return of the Jedi with my kids the other day, and while they were enjoying the antics of C3PO and R2D2, I did some quickie sketches on the iPad (with Sketchbook Mobile). Nothing fancy. Just traditional minute gesture drawings.
