DEAR MEN IN COMICS:
THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.
You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate…
Today in Pittsburgh, it is snowing. Today in California, it is not.
Okay, but also yesterday along with the snowing it was also raining, sleeting and 65 degrees. And most of that just in the first few hours of the day.
California is obviously boring.
Only rebloging for spidey.
what if the coins you find randomly at the bottom of drawers and in between couch cushions are actually from spiders trying to pay rent
MUSE (verb/noun). And the name of my new art book of brush & ink drawings of humans. And cats. More art from it here:… https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/337503446/david-mack-muse-life-drawings-2012-2014
Here is a making of the cover I did for the new series from my dear friends @BRIANMBENDIS and @Oeming
Pencil lines, cutting, collaging… tinkering.
I started with the hair when Brian sent me Oeming’s character designs…
Figure based on a pose of Raylin who modeled for me.
I went with the idea of the composition being that of the Statue of Liberty.
But with gun hand instead of torch.
Being that the story is about an alternate version of the US in which the Mob won the war on crime.
And for that reason, the green is made of currency. This is also to build on the currency motif Brian made of his initial tease of the image for this series with a drawing on money.
I went with the gun finger smoking instead of an actual gun. I figured it was more subtle and metaphorical that way.
Cut papers make the liberty crown radiating from the head and act as a composition design element.
