The GOOD GIRL art of DAVE HOOVER....





















I see his work all the time here and there while looking and searching on the inter web jungle for neat and cool images or info about Jungle Girls and anything pertaining to any one of my blogs.

One day...today in fact I came across his gallery at COMICVINE and saw a few lovely Jungle girl drawings I wanted to share with you. Thanks for being a great artist Dave. Keep up the good work. Pro's like you make my self appointed job easier.


The following text is from...Dave's bio on COMICVINE...


"Dave Hoover is a comic book artist and one of the notable 'good girl' artists working today.


Dave Hoover was a student of art and animation at the Art Institute of Philadelphia in the 1970's. He began his artistic career as an animator in 1977 and worked for eight years on many television productions and two feature films. He became a comic book artist in 1987 and worked as a penciler on many titles for both DC and Marvel, including lengthy runs on Starman and Captain America. He was the primary artist for the entire 13-issue run of The Wanderers title for DC.
Since 1999 Hoover has been teaching art as a faculty member of his old alma mater, the Art institute of Philadelphia. In recent years he has become known for his pinups and 'good girl' art. He has said that Supergirl is his favorite character to draw, and has probably created more pinups of her than any other character."

It is with great regret that I have to say that Dave Hoover passed away last week. My condolences to his friends and family. He was a great man and a great artist.
