Unpublished Projects...part 2



This art was for a Comico Primer cover,way back in the dawn of my career- I plotted a short story based on an idea i had for years before i got into the pro side of things-i also did the pencils-the bonus was that i somehow convinced Matt Wagner of GRENDAL fame to both dialog and ink it!

The story was finished-essentially a 1st chapter to a larger-i hoped-story,which never got published because Comico canceled the Primer book- looking back on it,I'm kinda glad it never was seen-but that's because I'm so critical of the artwork now-some well meaning friends want me to "publish" it here and I'm considering it-we'll see...;o)

PS- the art here is actually not the original way it looked-years later i pulled a "Lucas" and added a wash over it.

Wow! I haven't seen that in a long time and it still holds up today.

thanks,lads-yeah-i still wanna do that full story someday- Matt inked it way back in '84 and i did an inkwash over it in 2001.

Is there a script for this? I'd love to see what it is all about!

nvokes said...

yup-well,at least the one story we did-i plotted and penciled-Matt inked and dialogged-it was to be in the next ish of Comico Primer and yes...i killed another book before it got published-my 2nd if u count AZ-lol
