Here’s a piece that I drew a few years ago… so I hope folks will be kind!
I forget the exact circumstances but a few years ago… (I want to say around 2012) … a group of my fellow instructors at the Joe Kubert School and I decided …just for the fun of it… that some of us would pencil a piece of art that another in our group would ink. I forget how I landed on Batman Beyond but that’s who I decided to draw and so I drew the piece that you see posted here. Once I was done, the page went to one of my former students turned colleague on the Kubert School faculty, Giovanni Valletta, who was going to ink. Gio inked on a blue line print out and I believe we both posted the results years ago when he actually did it. If I can dig up his inks, I’ll post them here later. Because Gio had scanned the original and inked on a print out, my original pencils were untouched and preserved. A couple of weeks ago, Gio came across the page and returned it to me so of course I had to share it here.
It’s always a little wince-inducing to look at work that’s a few years old. I’d do some many things differently now. Still, I hope everyone enjoys this piece. Now that its back, it’ll go into my portfolio and make the rounds with me at the different conventions next year.
