Client: DC Comics
Media: Media: Pencil, PITT Pen and COPIC marker on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

Finally getting around to uploading some images. Here's the final cover art to ZATANNA 14. Lady Z studying arcane lore in some Lovecraftian library! Woot! Or Toow! as Zatanna would say...

Not sure if this has anything to do with the story itself; DC Comics sometimes just like eye-catching or thought-provoking covers.

Tentacles in the library are never a good sign.

I have never bought/read Zatanna anything, but looking at this cover sure makes me want to.

Oh wow!
Love the scene.
Love the atmosphere.
Love the expression of the character.
Love the monster tentacles snaking gently in the background.

I was working a convention and my buddy that was helping me cover the booth saw this comic while going through a 'used' bin one of the distributors had. He knew this was without equal, my favorite Zatanna illustration, so he bought the comic for me.

I read the comic & the story was... lacking. But this cover is still the most amazing Zatanna piece I've ever seen. So I've framed the comic & it hangs on my wall.

Thanks for the gorgeous artwork man ;-)

I'm favoring your work nice and slow so you won't feel like you have a stalker, once a month should do the trick, right?
