Catwoman covers


I am now the regular cover artist on DC Comics' CATWOMAN, starting with issue 47!

Seen here is the cover for issue 48, which I had to do first for scheduling purposes (I will be going back to do 47, which has already been solicited with a temporary cover).

I designed this cover to have bold text running
over Catwoman, so it isn't really complete without the lettering, but that is being handled by the talented folks at DC. I'll post the final version once the trade dress is all put together.

I'm really excited to be on this book. Gotham's shadows and crazy rogues gallery, along with Catwoman's sleek silhouette, provide a great opportunity for design and figure drawing, and the story arc I am starting on has plenty of exciting moments to capture for the covers. It should be a nice ride!

DK3

This is one of many 'retailer variant' covers for DC Comics' upcoming DARK KNIGHT 3. My cover was sponsored by Madness Games & Comics in Plano, TX.

I was asked to include female characters, but I only read THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS as a teenager and spared myself the sequel, so I was only familiar with the Carrie Kelly Robin. My editor suggested THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN's Wonder Woman, so that is what we have here.

Drawn by hand with Photoshop color as usual. I debated trying to paint this one traditionally, but I didn't have quite as much time as I would have liked to allow for the inevitable painting disasters and subsequent repair work, so I decided to stick with digital but to try to stay loose and not fuss over every pixel. It turned out to be a lot of fun to work on.

More soon!
