A random collection of material from comic artist Kevin Nowlan. Started with the best of intentions, but like most other efforts, doomed to perish from neglect as soon as the novelty wears off.
I love the really light, minimal way you drew the skunk lady's face.
Thanks, Stephen. That's the part I like as well.
Mr. Nowlan, i never asked how big you sketchs were? did you work on a 8x11" sheet of paper, then blow up the image? curious...peace out
Yes, they're done on standard typing/copier paper. I normally divide the sheet down the middle and rough in two pages on one sheet so each page is about 5x8".
I loved this book. Shockingly bad plastic plate colours but beautiful. Would be a great one to see in black and white.On the Outsiders Annual you managed to get it close to spot on. Always wondered if you worked to avaoid the yellow on that book?Seem to remember only GeoForce and the the terrorists in yellow due to the costume.Also love the economy on your work of this period.
Oh, god! One of my favorite NM stories, and not because the plot! You was the first artist to draw them as YOUNG people. Not to mention how unusual was at the time to see so minimalistic artwork. Aaand, of course, was the first time I saw your name, and fell in love... with the artwork, of course :) Thanks for bring up the memories when comics used to be fun, to me. ^^
Will, I don't remember deliberately avoiding the color yellow on that job but I suppose it's possible.
Thanks for posting this one! It's one of my favorite issues of yours... it's just a ton o fun to read. I jumped at the chance when I had the opportunity to buy one of the pages, quite a few years back. It's right here in my studio with me... still makes me very happy to see it!
Thanks, Tom. Nice of you to say so. Which page is it?
Page 24... panel 4 is a nice shot of Lillandra comforting Xavier... and the last panel is a down shot of Charles walking away from the Starjammers, saying "I lose." He just looks so dejected, it's great!
I like that one too. I'll see if I can find my copies and do a post. Thanks for reminding me!
Lovely artwork, but jeepers jehosephat!Why did no one ever explain the definition of "logorrhea" to Chris Claremont?Preferably with a blunt instrument, it goes without saying.
Wahoo, I now have the pleasure of owning the original for this very page, and it's a bonus to find out it's your favourite from the book too! Let me know if you'd like a nice scan of the original and I'll be happy to fill up your inbox!
Absolutely! Thanks a million, Simon!
