VENOM #1 (Variant Cover). 2018. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)
on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

Venom #1 is out today!!!! Full details here. I'm afraid the original art has already sold (but we've still got plenty of other work available). And if you're worried that this isn't enough Venom, rest assured that I've got another cover to be revealed soon(ish).


The 3D models are from Anatomy 360, and the architecture is from Google Street View (which just happens to be near my old neighborhood in Brooklyn).
