A new commission – Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!

I just completed this commission for veteran Marvel Comics writer Christopher Yost. It’s a tribute to the Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes animated TV series, on which Chris served as Head Writer and Story Editor. It’s based on the cover to Secret Wars #9 by Mike Zeck (which you can see below). All the changes to the text on the cover are references to the Avengers: EMH series and were worked out by Chris Yost, as were the character substitutions and the change of setting to in front of Stark Tower in New York City. According to Chris this is a piece he’s been thinking about having done “for a long time.”

On the left you can see the original hand-drawn line art for the piece, minus the head-shots for the upper left corner box and the Ultron head in the UPC Code Box (which sported a black costume Spider-man head in the Direct Sales version of the original Secret Wars cover). In the center is the composition of that line art with the other elements including those heads and Photoshop-rendered logos and text. On the right is the final color version which, which is being produced as a print and will be delivered with the original artwork as part of the commission to the good Mr. Yost.

As a reminder – I am currently accepting commissions online for sketches and illustrations. My originals are all black-and-white line art, but I will add digital color and provide a print along with the original art for an additional fee. You can read more about ordering a commission piece from me here.
