Artist Rafael Kayanan (and one-time Beat UFC color commentator) is probably best known for his work on Conan, but in recent years he’s also drawn the Punisher and Spider-Man. He’s a busy guy outside of strictly comics though– he also produces concept art for movies, and stages fights for stage and screen. Hurricane Irene found him inside and tweeting some drawings to stay busy like this Thark from the John Carter books. Check out his Twitter stream for more sketches.
