Wrapped up the completed first issue of my comic, "1001." If you're in Toronto this weekend, come on down to my table at Wizard World for a first print copy! Or, if you're, say, on the other side of the world, it will be available online for free come Friday.
An editorial artwork of Scherezade from my comic "1001" (first issue available for free at [link] ).
I wasn't sure how people would react to the bold colors in this piece, but I'm thrilled to say it sold out, twice over, at the recent 2012 Montreal Comic Con. Thank you to everyone who purchased a copy and supported my comic book!
I did this while attending the class "The Art of Spanish Colonial Repujado or Tin Embossing," taught by Maria Natividad. It was a lot of fun!
This was made on a sheet of aluminum with the embossing technique. A mold was not used for this but instead we created our own designs and used a sharp stick for making the lines and a blender stick for making the embossed 'popped out' areas. The black areas (called 'antiquing') were added by my instructor, Mrs. Natividad, a well-known embossing artist where I live (she used mine for the antiquing demo, else I would've added the blacks. The way she did it was brilliant).
