If you havent noticed yet, its become my mission to let everyone on DeviatArt (and the world!) know how Incredible it is to work for Marvel Comics! It is the BEST job Ive ever had in my life (and Ive had some bad ones!)! Anyway, the office here is so cool! Theres stuff everywhere; toys, poster, comic books (stuff Im sure other places would consider unprofessional However, I always felt that even thought we have Venom soap dispensers the bathroom was a little boring (re: corporate). So one day I came up with this sign to hang up there. Hopefully, itll start other people hanging stuff too!
As for the piece itself, it was drawn/inked/colored completely on the computer. So it classifies as green artwork because no paper was used (except for the printout obviously!). Plus if the message is delivered itll make the world a cleaner place! Yeeah environment!
So, I hung up the Bullseye piece in the Marvel bathroom (the best place in the world to work! uh...Marvel not their bathroom!) and it got a really great response! So great that I was actually asked to do another one by a VERY high ranking person in the company! So here it is!
So do me a favor, go to Marvel.com & check out all the neat stuff we (I love saying that!) have going on! Then go out and buy some Marvel stuff, or go see a Marvel movie! [link]
And keep your eyes open because my artwork my be hanging over a toilet near you!
I think we all know a Deviant like this. Photo way too dark, so-so composition, whole thing covered in watermarks, and the resolution is positively miniscule. And yet the person who point-and-clicked the shot still spends a paragraph and a half on a caps-locky rant bawling out their viewers as if every single one of them is just itching to steal the shitty photo and get famous off it.
Never mind that actual thieves could give two shits about your rules, however aggressively you word them. All your shrieking and hysteria can do in the long run is scare away honest fans who would never in a million years do you wrong.
And of course, never mind the fact that some of the rules are downright unenforceable (HURF DURF NO SAVING TO THE HARD DRIVE).
Still, if you point any of this out to the artist, no matter how politely, you had better be wearing a pair of asbestos underpants, because you're in for the flaming of a lifetime.
Especially if the artist posts a "call-out" in her journal linking to your page no fewer than three times and basically begging all of her friends and fans to nerd-rush your page and call you names for daring to challenge her right to protect her own intellectual property.
This is the NEXT ISSUE page I designed for Marvel's Marvelous Land of Oz comics. Nate wanted to do something a little different so I decided to just jump right in and draw all the characters from the book. The designs are based mostly on the novel, not the comic.
So I'm sitting here in Denver International Airport a lil bored and decided to work on my next piece (and crank out more than one image per year finally) From the Secret Invasion storyline, I decided to rework an image used by Steve McNiven and here it is. Hopefully if my flight gets delayed any further I'll have more to post tonight.
*edit* update, working on the body and background now, had to switch to Painter cause Photoshop keeps crashing on this image for some reason
I was cleaning up my studio and I found a few old prints from school that I never posted. For this one, we were given the theme of scientology to work with. I had to do an edition of 25, so it had to be pretty simple. I had fun with it. I really miss printmaking.
