BETTIE PAGE: UNBOUND #9

Well, since the editor gave me a green light to post this once Dynamite Entertainment began its official promotion and solicitation, here we go.

This is the illustration I submitted for their BETTIE PAGE: UNBOUND issue # 9.  It will be one of several covers (Cover B) for that issue.  It's been a long time since I did any comics art, outside of inking the work of other artists.  And this is only my second attempt at "Good Girl" art.  Drawing the legendary Betty Page is a most intimidating honor.

They left it up to me to come up with a concept.  Reflecting on Ms. Page's unfulfilled dreams of being a star in Hollywood, I decided to depict her "crashing" into the big screen sci-fi monster scene, as she innocently snatches the affections from a Creature From The Black Lagoon knock-off, causing the Gill-Man to dump Julie Adams?

This is my black-and-white tonal study, which I feel is more befitting the scenario focusing on a black-and-white classic movie.  I hope you like it!

I love it! Your work is stunning! Would you consider doing one with Ms. Page’s famous naughty smile?
