“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

THE ALL-AMERICAN_kickstarter

[9 x 12" - blue pencil, brush & technical pen on 100lb/300series bristol board]





Trying to re-design a heroic, American Super Soldier is a whole lot tougher than it sounds.

Because of my background, I have these knee-jerk design nuances that immediately pays homage to what I grew up on reading comic books. It's an irritatingly bad habit I'm actively trying to break free from.

I fail more than I succeed.
