Daredevil


I've still got a few con sketches from Chicago to post but I figured I'd break things up a bit, and maybe add a bit of color to the ol' blog here, with this odd Daredevil piece.
It was really just an experiment to see how loose I could get with my inks and still make them read-able. Not to mention give me a little break from sequential work for an hour or so:) It seemed fairly successful in just the B&W line art but almost as soon as it was finished I began to wonder how in the world anyone could color something this loose and have it make any sense at all... so I went ahead and added a bit of marker to try to solidify things a bit. I'm actually pretty happy with how this one turned out all things considered

I guess one of the nice things about not paying attention to what you're working on is that sometimes I see something on your blog that suprises me. This is really gorgeous! And it reminds me of our first Valentines Day together! :)

That is really something. I can't wait until I get your issue of Checkmate from my online shop. I am sad to say it will be the first time I have seen your sequential art. Any chance this might be up for purchase at Mo-Kan?

Man I didn't know you drop acid?!? Nice one!

Amazing effects you were able to achieve with marker-- it looks like some other, more "high brow" medium. Great gestural looseness; dig it.

Justin, I actually sold this piece within a few hours after posting. I'll bring along lots of other stuff if you want to flip through my portfolio at the show though.

Hey Megan, is there a medium higher brow than comics?
