Redline by S. Roux by itsago Redline by S. Roux by itsago
Getting a commission from :iconstephaneroux: has been a long time goal of mine, as I personally consider him to be one of the most talented artists working today. However, though I'd seen him at a few shows here and there over the years, the circumstances had never quite worked out for me...until last year's Big Wow! Comicfest (which was turned out to be the last Big Wow! Comicfest ever -- as the show morphed into the Silicon Valley Comic Con this year). Luck was on my side, and I was able to get to the show relatively early and sought out Stephane just in time to make it on to the tail end of his commission list.

Stephane couldn't have been a nicer guy to talk to and deal with. Throughout the weekend, he had a ton of interesting things to say to me and anyone else who stopped by his table. He spoke very eloquently of his admiration for the late Dave Stevens' work (in fact, he was showing off photos of a Rocketeer-themed motorcycle was he was having custom-built from his designs that he plans on taking on a cross country comic shop tour when complete), his family, and a variety of cool projects he was working (or had recently) worked on. All in all, he struck me as a guy who is well and truly 'living the dream', but is profoundly grateful to have the opportunity to do so -- which makes him that much cooler, if you ask me.

I couldn't be happier with Stephane's take on Redline -- he put quite a bit of time, thought, and effort into the piece -- and I think it really shows. An all-time favorite commission from one of my all-time favorite artists -- what more could you ask for?

Thanks, FoO -- I felt very lucky to get to Stephane when there was still room on his list -- and even luckier when he got enthusiastic about rendering Redline!
