One of my favorite comic books growing up was the X-men. I can clearly remember buying my first X-men comic, right off the magazine rack at People’s Drug Store in Calverton, Maryland. It was the Uncanny X-men #166, double size issue no less! It was brilliantly illustrated by Paul Smith and written by Chris Claremont. It was that issue that introduced me to one of my favorite characters of all time: Wolverine.

Fast forward 28 years later, here I am drawing a giant X-men interlocking cover with pretty much all the X-men characters ever created including my favorite Canadian, Wolverine.

As I’m hunched over the drafting table, drawing the night away. A calm bliss overtakes me. I’m 11 years old again.

Yeah. I love my job.

Giant X-Men Cover!

Marvel just announced at the WonderCon the epic X-Men miniseries that will split the X-Men team in two. And I was lucky enough to do the covers to all 5 issues.

Well here it is, ladies and germs. The giant X-Men: Schism cover (5 interlocking covers) that I’ve been slaving over for the last 3 weeks. The original art is 62 inches by 21 inches. It was drawn on three large papers taped together by a special archival tape that the Library of Congress uses. I used my usual Micron Pigma pens (sizes 08 and 01) with a light ink wash and gray Copic markers to accent the figures from the background.

I had a blast drawing this cover, despite the new characters who were completely alien to me. I was happy to draw the core characters that I grew up with.
