Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 406


FANTASTIC FOUR: LIFE STORY #1 VARIANT COVER. 2021.
Gouache and Acryla Gouache on illustration board, 13 × 19″.

I haven't had a chance to do a Wacky Reference Wednesday in a while, but I finally made some time (out of thin air, no less)! The original pencil sketch (pictured way down below) is actually from the Fantastic Four 50th anniversary back in 2011. We ended up doing a different cover with a 1960s feel, but I had always wanted to paint this one as well.

The issue is out in stores today! You can read more about it at marvel.com.
