Now it can be told. I have been working on this project for a while, but I could not talk about it. Now that the conventions are over and the book has come out, I can say that I am one of the artists of the Clinton Cash GN.
I focused on the art and not the politics of it all and I'm happy at how it turned out. Brett Smith did a wonderful job Editing and Coloring the book!
I found this Tombow pen at the art store and thought I'd give it a try. I liked it! It has a small, sharp point that holds up to repeated use without shredding. The grey ink tip on the opposite end did not bleed into the black ink. I have been thinking about doing the 24 hour comics challenge, and if I do, I would do it with this pen. I would buy a bunch, but I would use this pen!
I had a rare chance to watch a movie at the cinema today. That was Batman V Superman. I left the movie feeling sad and unsatisfied. Dark, 'Matrix' style cinematography, a twitchy, pointless Lex Luthor and a story that included the destruction of half of Gotham City left me cold. So much violence and not much to look forward to.
I give this movie a thumbs down!
I first saw Alex Ross' art when I freelanced at Marvel in the 90s. I would swing by the Editors office (my friend Marcus) and go through is files. Incredible paintings! And even more, copies of his pencils. After the four issue series 'Marvels' hit the stands, I was able to get a hold of the pencils.
They were light copies that I am able to scan darker. Here are a few pages from the second issue.
