OP 1

Comic book style "pin-up" for an upcoming children's book. One of seven, plus a cover. Alternate retro style color version. 2012.

 

Lately it's been both fun and frustrating reliving my childhood dream of drawing superheroes and villains for a living for a book project. Fun because I get to channel (rip-off) my two favourite comic book artists, Jack Kirby and Bruce Timm - frustrating because although I drew superheroes non-stop from the age of 9 to 15, and worked on a number of Star Wars related comics in the late 1990s, I'm really not a comic book artist. So these take me waaay too long to make any money on.
