champagne supernova



been working on some covers, Loose Ends pages too (jes can't share em), these are the roughs from the first of four from the Boom! mini-series NOLA. Rico and i aim to get the colors worked out ahead of time, as they set-up for inks. went the yellow version, it hid the body underwater and held the silhouette. big anatomy snafu at this stage, hurt the finished shot. shit. will post process thru to the final in short order.
......meanwhile, looks my all-time favorite band, oasis, broke up. aye, you're not here for the ramblings of a superfan. aside from their stellar tunes, the series of albums and singles they put out had a great overarching design sense. like the Pixies and the Smiths, the chunk of pages they owned in my CD book stood out based on look alone. art directed by Brian Cannon with Noel Gallagher. just a few...
