Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 388

Le Mariage au Hill Bleue (Wedding Invitation). 2013.
Ink on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

It takes guts to wear a yellow jump suit, but it takes even more to marry a comic book artist (and blogger?). Happy 5th anniversary to my very own April, love of my life, mother of my child, and organizer of the best wedding I've ever been to (seriously, it was amazing). Love you, babe!

I totally forgot to post this! Here's cover #5 of Black Panther, my second of the series. (I just turned in #7 last week, and will start #8 soon). Daniel Acuña, the artist on the book, has been providing me with rough sketches to get things rolling. I'll show those once I post the full process.
