Now that I've completed both of my last two big illustration assignments, I've decided I'm going to spend the next few months doing cover recreations only...and then pick up some more book illustration assignments in late Fall.

If you are interested in a classic cover recreation (silver/bronze age - not really a fan of doing recreations where there's a lot of computer color & typesetting), here is what I'm asking:


11x17" cover recreation ($100 each) -  all logos, trade dress/etc hand-drawn on Strathmore 300 series bristol boards (minus the UPC box, unless you really want a Spidey head or something in that space - otherwise, I extrapolate the existing art to take up that space).  No pasteups.

18x24" jumbo size classic EC cover recreation ($150 each) - same as the above, but for one of my extra large size EC (like Tales from the Crypt, Weird Science, all those classic titles) recreations.


If you have any questions about the recreations, please send me a message, including potential covers you'd like re-created.   My gallery is full of previous recreations, for reference.

Note: I am *not* interested in commissions for re-imaginings or custom cover designs at this time. 

All art/logos/trade dress are inked on an 11x17 board, no pasteups, in order to simulate a full-sized piece of original art.  My method is to lightbox all logos and trade dress with Pitt pens with the exception of the UPC box - I leave that out and continue the artwork "underneath" it where applicable.  Then, I lightbox the artwork contours in pencil in order to ensure placement.  Lastly, I ink the artwork freehand with a Raphael Kolinsky 8084 brush and dark india ink, typically while holding a copy of the actual comic in my other hand for reference. I strive to reproduce the original ink lines as closely as I can with my brush.

Price includes free USPS first class shipping to the USA - the art board will be slipped into an 11x17 polybag and rolled inside a sturdy 4" diameter mailing tube.  Sorry, no international shipping is available.
