Just digging through some black & white samples that I had to send off to an ad agency & found this…
Passion Pictures called me in, about two years ago, to do some boards for their pitch on the Kavalier & Clay movie. As I remember it was a bit of a rush job and as well as the boards they also wanted a retro comic book cover. I managed to do this in a day, which I was really pleased with cos I had to do the character design & all the type as well. Also I’d not used a brush pen before.
I’ve not read the Kavalier & Clay novel & certainly didn’t have any time to read anything before doing this. They gave me one reference picture for the Luna Moth lady and I wasn’t that keen on her costume so I went down my own route with that. It was about a year later that I realised there was an actual Escapist comic book & that my buddy, Big Phil Bond had done some work on it.
So I apologise to any ‘Escapist/Luna Moth’ purists out there, this was my take on a character I knew absolutely nothing about, bar her name – and it probably doesn’t fit her character very well, but hey, thought it might be of interest.
