"Plug-licious..."


Popped by the MoCCA Festival at the Armory downtown this afternoon...
It turns out that the cover for "City of Fever" doesn't look too shabby after all!
They managed to get at least close to the tone of the original painting. Very surprising...

Sure... the very first interior credit page has two misspellings ("penceled" and "writen")... but at least my name is spelled correctly;)

All and all, worth the effort.

Back to the grind now...

so greg... i have to ask. was the picture taken shirtless in order to help the composition? was the point to make the comic book pop more?

Greg said...

It was done to add a special sexiness to the proceedings that the simple physicality of a common cover photo would lack...

So, I ask you now...

Did it work?

i will have to perform a study to the effect. look for your photo on CNN tonight, and local bus-stops in the city.
