WHEN SPIDER'S AWAY.

Filthy Assistants Preview.

I was asked to contribute a piece to the upcoming Transmetropolitan art book, benefiting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and The Hero Initiative. It's still too early to reveal the full illustration, so here's a tight crop/preview.

The Kickstarter campaign for this ends on Monday night. If you're interested in ordering a book, stop thinking about it and just do it. I mean, c'mon, look at that crazy list of artists. And bonus Darick Robertson and Warren Ellis? Really, now.

Oh. And I've discovered that, for someone who renders hair like a crazy-person, Channon's super-layered mane is both a joy and a nightmare to draw. In hindsight, I could have picked Spider Jerusalem to save myself the trouble. But that's not a very good exercise in self-hate, now is it.

IT'S FULL OF SECRETS.

Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man.

Small illo I worked with on-and-off shortly after the first image from the Spider-Man reboot was released. Yes, it's me using Spidey (and portrait practice) as an excuse to draw Andrew Garfield's magnificent, giant hair.
