Donovan Flint | Star Hunters

In the fall of 1977, I penciled one issue (#3) of a new sci-fi series for DC Comics, created by David MicheleneDon 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.

Bjorn Borg | 1977

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.
