Cheerleader Brandy – Sketching the Cover

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

FRANK CHO Brandy Cheerleader 2012
FRANK CHO – Cheerleader Brandy 2012

I’m working on the cover to the special Baltimore Comic-Con exclusive art book celebrating the 15th anniversary of Liberty Meadows. Various talented artists are doing their take on my Liberty Meadows characters, including Frank Quitely, Brandon Peterson, Gene Ha, David Petersen, Bernard Chang, Steve Conley, etc. It’s always interesting and exciting to see their interpretation of the characters.

I had a short time to do the cover to this book. One of the original visual ideas of the book was to make the book look like a high school yearbook. With time limited, I decided to put Brandy in a cheerleader outfit, partly for the yearbook theme and partly for the celebration of Liberty Meadows anniversary.

I thought it would be a very simple task drawing this cover but it wasn’t. As you can see from the multiple sketches, the evolution of this cover was far from easy. I guess it’s the perfectionist streak in
me, I didn’t like any of the my cover drawings. On this very last day of the deadline, I’m still trying to figure out the final image.

It’s gonna be a long night.

This Liberty Meadows hard cover art book is super limited to about 1000 copies(?), and will be sold exclusively at the Baltimore Comic-Con.
