VHVF02 cover C grande by MichaelDooney
VHVF02 cover C grande
I have always said that lots of comic artists get all the credit even when the colorist is doing a lot of the heavy is an example using a piece I penciled. I really like the unusual color palette on this one, definitely not the colors I would have picked but I  think it works great. Ula Mos colored this one I think, she always brings a lot to the table ;)

brush pen on copy paper. Most of my drawings are on bristol stiff cardstock type paper, but I really like working on thin bond paper, it takes markers really well and has just the right surface.

The sad news of Darwyn Cooke's passing will leave a huge hole in the comic world for me. 

While, there are many  comic artists whose work I admire, and I am constantly impressed by lots of artists chops, Darwyn was definitely my favorite contemporary comic book creator, no question.

As soon as he arrived on the scene it was love at first sight for me. 

His work embodies everything I love about the best comics...super clear storytelling, amazing drawing and a real sense of adventure and even, dare I say it, joy...which is sadly lacking in most "modern' comics. 


I believe that people like Darwyn who use their lives to put some beauty back into the world definitely leave it a little better for having been here.  

Let's remember to cherish them  while they're here and appreciate them  long after they've gone.
