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.
