Waddup y'alls, how's it going?!? Feels like it's been FOREVER since my last post, but let me tell ya', these days it seems like there's only enough time for drawing and sleeping!!! Since the begginning of last year (more or less), we started designing DC's MMO over at Wildstorm.
It's an awesome job, very BIG, very challenging, and it has really pushed my 'designing' muscles to all kinds of new places, BUT between the MMO and Deathblow, there's not a whole lot of time in between... now I understand when Alex Sinclair joked about 'sleep being a waste of time', there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day sometimes (that is the main reason why the editors at WS decided to make the series Bi-Monthly, otherwise they'd kill me!!! :) )
I've really, really enjoyed Brian's (Azzarello) stuff since I first read "Jonny Double", and his "100 Bullets" stuff is by FAR one of the best books out there, so when I had the chance to work with him on my favorite WS character "Deathblow", it was one of those "where do I sign up?" kinda' things!
...this here is an intial cover idea I did based on something Brian suggested... It's all done digitally in Photoshop as a quick mock-up. I don't want to spoil any of the story, but any of you watching the news should be able to see the parallels between all the crazy things happening in the world and Wildstorm's favorite assasin. Reality is often much stranger than fiction huh?!?
The book comes out Wednesday, so for those of you who decide to pick it up, hope you enjoy, and let me know what ya' think! :)
