a commission I did for a fellow named Steven
Gettis. It all came about when I received
the following email:
actually been procrastinating in getting a hold of
you for some time now (though not quite sure why).
I finally tracked down a copy of Numar yesterday
at a local shop and loaned out the Zed
trade and "Rabbits" to
my sister-in-law the day before and I figured it
was too many "Michel Gagné" coincidences
in my life to ignore. :-)
the past bit , I've been constructing a personal
themed sketch collection (and corresponding website
to display these things) that features different
artists and writers interpreting their favourite
literary characters or authors. It's really done
remarkably well the response to it has been so amazingly
positive with new stuff by Alex Toth, Joe Kubert,
Will Eisner, Gene Colan, Jim Mahfood, David Mack,
Mark Andrews, Bill Sienkiewicz, Kaluta, Renee French,
Jeff Jones, Herb Trimpe, Walt Simonson, John Buscema,
George Pratt, Bryan Talbot, Jon Muth, and Scott Morse
(amoung many others). The site with all the artwork
posted is at: http://www.digitalmedusa.com/sgettis and
worth checking out if you have the time.
is there any way I get you involved in this? Unfortunately
there is no way I can make this request in person (as
I live in Southern Alberta) and have had to rely on
email, snail mail and the kindness of others for this
entire thing so far (but I can't really complain as
I've been really blessed with the way it's been received).
really hope that this is something you find appealing.
All the best from Canada,
exchanging a few emails and agreeing on terms, I created
this image inspired by Felix Salten's
children's book classic.
