This was a super fun assignment for Variety Magazine. Thanks once again to the fab art director Cheyne Gately. He’s a pleasure to work with. The brief or concept he gave me was basically, Super girl holding up the convention centre where San Diego Comic Con is held and in front of that would be a big stand off with The Flash, The Green Arrow, and some characters from Walking Dead going against some Ice Zombies from Game Of Thrones. I’m like, “Uh yeah.” Fist pumping after I read that one.” Below is the result. The best part about this magazine is they a) print it larger than most magazines and b) they send me a copy. It turned out great. Full page with bleed. Thanks again Cheyne.
This was a little different for me. I really enjoyed this opportunity to tackle a story with a little more serious tone to it than I normally get. A lot of the illustrations I’m hired for tend to have a humoristic slant to them. This was a story told by a Grandfather to his young Grandson about a particular moment in the Vietnam war when he had to kill a man. At times, the story got rather intense. It was a great experience. I’d like to take on more jobs with serious subject matter occasionally. It’s a nice challenge for me.
