SPACE GHOST: RESCUE FLIGHT by Jerome-K-Moore SPACE GHOST: RESCUE FLIGHT by Jerome-K-Moore
WB Marketing Art, SPACE GHOST. Pencil, Digital Color.

Many, many moons ago, when I was a member of "Murderers' Row," the art department staff at Warner Bros Consumer Products, I was assigned the Space Ghost art program. WB had recently acquired all of the Hanna-Barbera characters, and despite SG's newfound success with younger fans as a self-parodying talk-show host, our objective was to restore some measure of the classic style (and dignity!) to the heroic outer space cop. I studied the old model sheets created by the great Alex Toth, and I sought to emulate his design, as well as infuse my own sensibilities based on my experiences as a comic book illustrator.

Originally, I just did a tight pencil drawing, and the art was inked, and colored by other contributors. The figure's image has already appeared on various products out there in the vast marketplace, including T-shirts, toys, puzzles, coloring books, etc.. But as I practice more and more these days with Photoshop, I've revisited my online art gallery to find select pieces to color anew from my own perspective and taste. I swiped the star field background from an online library, as well as the "Space Ghost" title logo. It was my hope to recall the spirit (pun intended) of that fun animated adventure show, causing those fans old enough to remember to hear the familiar cry of, "SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE GHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSST!!!"

How dope would it have been to have Space Ghost on Young Justice...?! I can see him giving the league a run for their money and Jan and Jayce partnering up with The Team after the obligatory scrap during the shenanigans...!

I hope that black-and-white image you found is the one also located within my own gallery, and not one swiped by someone.

sorry for the odd reply..I have been in constant contact with a member who didn't know that contacting an artist BEFORE you post colors of their art is a good thing, and lost track of who I was replying to.
I looked through you gallery but didn't see the B&W of this or I'd have snagged it and tossed the one I found a while back.  Looks like I need to go cruising through it again LOL.

I found it trolling for Space Ghost pics on the web.  I contacted the "artist" who admitted he inked over the colored original, so it wasn't his art I contacted the guy who's art is really is and asked him.
If I intend to post here, I ALWAYS ask permission from every artist here who's work I color.

No way! "SPAAAAAACE GHOOOOOOOOOST!!!!!!" is Zeriouz Biznezz™!

Really, this piece is absolutely gorgeous! You nailed it and knocked it out of the park!

One of the other folks on my watchlist did a picture of Jan and that inspired me to do a Space Ghost search. Yours practically jumped off the screen at me.

I wonder if your schedule and workload might at any time allow for commissions; if so, I can PM you my "Standard Spiel for Artists".

Awesome Space Ghost Jerome. I'm glad he's not behind the desk & is taken more seriously. I've watched a lot of Hanna-Barbera stuff when I was a kid, & still do til this day. My fav next to Thundarr the Barbarian. Btw, I'll like to thank you guys at the studio for putting Blue Beetle in Young Justice: Invasion. Perfect fit to an awesome show.
