New commission: recreation of Curt Swan and Stan Kaye’s cover art to Adventure Comics #247. At client’s request, I replaced original logo with “Superboy” and inked the “No” lights in blue.
New commission: recreation of Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko’s artwork for The Hulk #2, page 9. Had fun with the brushwork on this one - started up a new Raphael, so I’m in that honeymoon stage where every stroke feels like buttuh!
New commission - recreation of Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott’s artwork for the cover of Fantastic Four #52. This is another one where I used the old school “stat” method by putting the logo, trade dress info on as paste-ups. This one was a bit of a challenge - the repros of this cover in Essential FF and FF omnibus are not the best, and the original printed version is pretty dark - I used a hi-res scan of the original from Heritage, and used some Photoshop trickery to bring out more detail for my template.
New commission: recreation of cover art to Batman #156 by Sheldon Moldoff and Charles Paris. I simulated the “old school” cover method by printing logo materials on glossy paper and gluing it on artwork (using acid-free materials). I’m not a huge fan of this method, but I can see why it would be appealing - it really does give it a more authentic look.
