OK-we're going to be dropping these blog "exclusives" here, to keep this thing interesting and fresh! This first one below was meant to be a painted companion piece to the BOMB#2 cover with Sea-Goin' Lil on it. I did this one on an old vellum. The sheet was pretty yellow, I like working on old paper like that sometimes. It popped out of the piles around here right around the time I was prepping a new SKETCHBOOK which Bob Shaw proposed we do for NYCC . It's coming along nicely might I add.
After some toning and cleanup I said"Golly!"...this piece is kinda nice. So truthfully it's not completely exclusive to the blog, it will be in the 2009 NYC MANNION SKETCHBOOK. But this is certainly the first public unveiling of the piece! So without further adieu, here she is, "The Fearless One"... (next up...a Daily!!!)
