Just a reminder that you can find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr at @caseyjonesart ! Most all of my work these days can't be shared due to strict NDAs, but I try to keep active in my sketchbook and doing fun stuff on the weekends.
I'm doing a few conventions this summer, so I'll be out there again soon! Hope to see you!
I've finally set up an online store where you can purchase Original Art from my Marvel days, as well as signed collections and prints.
For June, there's a selection of Marvel pages with a variety of great characters. I'm amazed at how much of the Marvel Universe has already made it into the mainstream -- Iron Man, Batroc, Days of Future Past, Sentinels, and even Blink. And, soon Ultron will make his way into Avengers 2! It's incredible what the Marvel Studios team has pulled off in such a short time.
Here's a look at this Iron Man page, which has never been offered before. It took forever to get the originals back on this issue, but I was happy to see them when they arrived. Great inks by Juan Vlasco!
I had a blast drawing Batroc the Leaper kicking the crap out of all the Avengers in this comic -- Hawkeye, Cap, Spidey, Wolverine... a great cast of characters! Batroc was the terrorist on the ship in Cap 3 (for you non-comic book people). They did an amazing job translating the character into the Marvel film universe! Magnifique!
Hard to believe I was 19-20 when I worked on this stuff! Hopefully I got a little better in past 16 years. It is weird to flip through this and have instant recall of what I was doing or listening to while drawing particular pages. Lots of memories of David Bowie and Richard Case! Loud, late-nite drawing with my buddy.
Nice to see these new colors on the Pacheco cover! Looks great. This is the first time Warren's Excalibur is being collected, so I'm glad to see it. Volume 3 will have the majority of my run, but this one has my first 3 issues.
Another piece wrapped up. I think I'm actually going to color this one, so here's a look with some flats in place. The guy who got me to do this was very cool and let me have a lot of fun on it. He was also a Wipeout XL fan from back in the day, so that was brought up as inspiration. That soundtrack from back in the 90's was always great inspiration while drawing Excalibur, so it was fun to revisit it. Great memories of those times with Rob and David when they were in Greensboro. Hard to believe it was so long ago! By the way, I've discontinued the old firstname.lastname@example.org email address, so from now on please use the .mac address (if you email me!). Thanks!
