In the fall of 1977, I penciled one issue (#3) of a new sci-fi series for DC Comics, created by David Michelene, Don Newton and Bob Layton titled Star Hunters. The cover and a panel from that issue appear below.
40 years later, this recent commission of Donovan Flint, lead protagonist. 13″x 20″, India ink and Gesso.
Soon after finishing this Bjorn Borg color spread for Crawdaddy Magazine in the summer of 1977, I took a long break from comics and never saw the issue published. Just found an affordable copy on Ebay.
At about 22 years old when it was done, barely 2 years into professional work, I remember delivering the large art to Crawdaddy, whose offices were in the same building as Marvel’s . Jim Starlin was in the lobby, leaving the building and asked if there’s new art on the board I’m carrying. I showed it to him and he thought for a second and said: “You’re too good for comics.” I didn’t think so but appreciated the compliment.
The latest in a run of Commissions topping a new gallery on the site menu.
An assorted gallery from sporadic work over the last year. The first three are comics cover re-creations, followed by illustrations and a few graphic designs.
