This drawing is for a pal of mine who requested M.O.D.O.K. fighting a Mexican wrestler.
The way we worked was very simliar to the old school Marvel Comics style: Tim pencilled a rough layout of the given page (think Sal Buscema) and then it was handed over to me.
I then took it to lightbox and pencilled the basic nature of the layouts (think Jim Mooney). While staying faithful to the initial placement and flow of Tim’s layouts.
The final version is now available at any comic book retailer. Twenty-two pages of this creepy epic AND you get to pick between two (that’s right, TWO) covers isn’t a bad deal whatsoever.
All in all, it was a fast paced job that left little room for either one of us to shine, but a job is a job. In other words, as Steve Ditko recently wrote me, “Welcome to comics.”
Hope you all had a good holiday!
Here is a sample page I worked on with the help of TIM HAMILTON. There was a possibility of Tim and I collaborating on the art chores for an issue of “FALL of CTHULHU” (published by BOOM! STUDIOS), but I had to furnish a sample before we signed on the dotted line. Tim was kind enough to let me ink this page of his:
As it turns out: we got the job!! Thanks, Tim! I heart you, 4 reelz.
