Daredevil #506 Cover. 2009. Acrylic and
gouache on bristol board, 11 x 17".
The cover for Daredevil #506 has finally been solicited, so I'm taking that as tacit permission to post it here. This piece was a joy to work on and I'm very thankful to my editor, Steve Wacker, for letting me go with the Japanese print theme. I took most of my inspiration from Hiroshige, whose work I have always admired, but never spent enough time perusing. Luckily, my roommate had a book of his work, so I had plenty of reference. I'm pressed for time at the moment, so the step-by-step will have to wait until Monday. Aside from my Spidey work, I've got one more Daredevil cover to do before the end of the month.
