"Just a Pilgrim" #3 cover

Jimmy Palmiotti asked me to do this cover for a book he was editing in 2001.  He wanted to see the title character drooling and wild-eyed in a Hannibal Lecter mask/muzzle.

The coloring made all the difference, especially after Jimmy suggested making the background blood red.


  1. Wow, the eyes sure are piercing, especially in the red version.

  2. Hey, Kevin, I'm a fan, your work is excellent, very inspiring... I'm a colorist myself, and I'd like to know if I could take the b/w version of this cover and color it, just for fun. I saw the beautiful linework and felt the urge, hehe.

  3. Hi, i remember yours beautiful Wolverine's covers
    of last '80(?). If is possible to see on B/W Logan out from a polica car...

    Thanks annd sorry for my english...

  4. Hi Alfredo,

    I'll make a note and see if I can find a b&w copy of the inks.


  5. Always liked this cover and think that Jimmy was spot on with the idea for a red background. That Jimmy, he's got a good head on his shoulders... :)
