I grew up being inspired by a ton of things, not the least of which was comic books. I love comic book art and I have a special place in my heart for the work produced back before the digital days. I love seeing a tattered and well read book with the old faded newsprint paper. Something about them just feels magic. Some time ago I decided to pay homage to those old books with a series of rather large paintings. I took some of my favorite covers or panels (and one for a friend) and blew them up huge for the canvases. I wanted them to feel a little old and weathered to try and recreate some of that magic that you feel when looking through an old comic. I have a couple more of these paintings started, I’ll have to post them once I finish. I work on them off and on as a fun side-project.
