SUPERMAN PIN-UP Recreation 11 x 17 HAZLEWOOD Sold by DRHazlewood SUPERMAN PIN-UP Recreation 11 x 17 HAZLEWOOD Sold by DRHazlewood
Tom Grummett & I did this for DC for use as a 'Style Guide' piece of artwork. I know I saw it used on some merchandise at the Warner Bros. Store back in the day. It was definitely used in a ltd. edition print set. I took another crack at this via bluelines on Strathmore Bristol board. The recreation is on 11 x 17 stock. I left out the henchman on the left in the foreground to differentiate it from the original.

This was is NOT a print. I was the original inker. Will look gorgeous framed!! An iconic shot of Superman!! SOLD

I always liked this image. You and Mr. Grummett (who I've been fortunate to commission a few times) made a phenomenal team on Superman.

Should the opportunity ever present itself, I'd love to have you ink one of the pencil pieces in my art collection.

I was going to answer you sooner, but I was trying to squeeze in inking a couple of extra things on my own before I got to my two latest LEGION commissions. They can be kind of complicated. Looking at what you have posted I would enjoy inking the Grummett 'Art Deco' piece for sure and wasn't there a Daryl Banks Superman illo in your gallery earlier? I don't see it now.

There was a Darryl Banks Superman in my gallery, yes. But after MAN OF STEEL, I'm rather embarrassed about having commissioned artwork related to it, so those drawings were removed from my DA and CAF galleries.

Regarding inking commissions, do you prefer to ink over the original pencils, or would bluelines be acceptable? Also, are all your commissions 11x17, or do you do other sizes like 9x12 or 11x14? I'd like to have an idea of what you're comfortable with before I make my request.

I like inking over the actual pencils, but most things I've done commission-wise have been over bluelines I have printed out myself. And I can understand why folks like to keep the original pencils if an inker is willing to ink over bluelines. I've run out of DC boards, so I bought a tablet of Strathmore Bristol board (11 x 17). I think it might finally be getting low. I have to remember to keep other scrap/blank pages under the stack in the printer so it can pick up the good ones properly.

I'll use a Hobby Lobby coupon to get another tablet again soon. I'm glad I looked closely at the three available they had at that point to pick out the best one. If I wasn't so obsessive I know one of them would have made me mad if I had gotten home with it and it's little problems--I think some were cut 'off' (and I think the other one also had kind of a bent corner). At least I know this stock doesn't bleed...which is why it is scary ordering board online.

I just looked through my smaller portfolio (which is what I'd usually take to shows--which I rarely get to anymore) and it is sad what little is left in there. Not much at all!!

An artist I've commissioned a few times, Dimitris Moore (:icondrmoore:) uses Eon art boards for his work. They seem to be high-quality stuff, so you might want to give those a try:

Anyway, thanks for getting back to me. I'll be sure to let you know what I'd like to commission once I've made a proper decision.
