We’ve put a different twist on this book. We’ve added 8 more pages for a total of 72 PLUS it’s FULL COLOR this year.
Note: Steve is happy to sign and/or personalize on request. If you do not include a request with your order your sketchbook will not be signed.
Note from Steve: “I wanted these books, more than anything else, to be fun.”
You probably assume you’re reading the latest quote from the Dude on why he devoted his last 3 decades as an artist in the comic-book field. No. Sorry. Stan Lee, reflecting on his days as Marvel’s head writer during the 1960′s, beat me to it.
Stan’s philosophy may also explain why I’ve spent most of my time these days on Gallery work instead of the “so serious our faces crack” world of today’s comics. Maybe when things lighten up and people get their perspective back I’ll think about returning.
Inside this book, we’ve inserted the original “fan request” that accompanied these commissions. That way, you’ll get to see what I was up against before I began drawing them, and, perhaps even more enlightening, how I interpreted their request.
Why do I still do these commissions if I’m not working in comics anymore? Because I like doing them, mostly. Also, to keep my skills unblunted, to keep my hand in the industry I’ll always be known for.
Hope these drawings can bring some fun to your day!
In pause for the cause,
