since this is out in stores now, i guess i can show it off here
this is the cover art for the Drift TPB.
now this was something that i had talked to the editor about. i figured that it would be nice if the trade had a new piece of art for the cover. i know that i like it when i buy a collected book and get a new cover instead of using one of the other covers.
usually there isn't a budget for it, so i offered to do it for free. i just really wanted to have a new cover. i thought it would be a nice gift for the fans who bought the single issue and were willing to buy the trade.
the only thing i would have liked more is for the trade to be a larger page count, then i would have added a lot more extras in in. but i like what they put in there for the space provided.
as for the cover. i just wanted a really simple cover with just drift on it. then i thought it would be interesting to have drift, and his former self deadlock on it. so i came up with a wrap around cover for the trade. i came up with a design that would leave enough room for the text they print on the back.
i didn't want anything going on in the background. i wanted it to be white so that the characters would stand out. also drift is white, so i thought it would make the his trade stand out more, and also like it with AHM where he first shows up.
as always Josh did the colors and i think they turned out fabulous
i always enjoy working with him.
well i better get back to work
that be me
he have tiny fists of color fury
