Old Man Logan's Run
This is my inner eight-year-old unleashed.
When I first read the Old Man Logan issues that my editor gave me, what immediately grabbed my inner child was a T-Rex bonded to the alien symbiont known as Venom. Couple that with Wolverine and a horse and you pretty much have my entire mind mapped (with the exceptions of spacemen, aliens, robots, ninja turtles, and girls). Alas, it was not meant to be. Though my editor completely agreed with the sheer awesomeness of a T-Rex, covered in an alien, chasing a mutant with a metal skeleton and healing factor on a horse in the desert, the assignment called for a cover that had to either resemble a scene from the issue, or be iconic (read: generic) enough to sum up the series.
Betting that would be the case, I didn't even finish Wolverine and his horse before sending off the comp. Maybe some day I'll get to paint dinosaurs.
By the way, the actual cover came out yesterday, although, being a variant, it might be hard to find in stores.
Tomorrow: we round out Old Man Logan week (Shark Week ain't got nothing on me) with some progress pics taken during the painting process.
