Busy day today. I have more cover work from Marvel and I'm being interviewed for a German magazine.

This past weekend, I've finished two of my favorite covers that I've done this season - Death of Ultimate Spider-Man and Hulk #629. For fun and to challenge myself, I've used two completely different drawing techniques to illustrate the two covers.

Since these two covers haven't been published yet, I can only show small portions of the images. The Spidey cover was done in pure pen and ink technique, and the Hulk cover was done in gray ink wash. Both presented unique challenges. They were very labor intensive and any mistakes were unforgiving but the end results were well worth the hardship.

Once Marvel publishes the covers, I'll post the full scans of the original art in their entirety.

You tease!

Seriously, even the sneak peaks look awesome. Congratulations on scoring these high-profile jobs. I hope we don't have to wait too long to see the entire covers.

Very refreshing to see a comic artist flex their artistic muscles like this. Thanks to sites like deviantArt, I get sick of seeing artists that never want to grow or try something new, and when you suggest doing something in a different style for fun or as a learning experience, they either say "that's too hard" or "no, this is how I draw."  Then they turn around and ask advice on how to get jobs as an illustrator.

Consider both of these issues sold - just for these covers.

I really enjoy the thought that Marvel is willing to let you stretch your pencil/ink on these covers instead of making you stick to the "tried and true." And as per usual, the teases look promising from what we can see Very Very Happy

Make mine Marvel..!

Amazing work as always Frank, funny I was just thinking it's been over 10-12 years since I first discovered your work.
10 years, where did it go?
