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.
Look at all that zip. Man, the fun times. Such a great example of how a two page splash should be to open up a book.So is there any reason you don't use Zip A Tone anymore in your artwork? Just a lost art and I figured you'd be one of the last people to let go of that technique. :) And that isn't a slight of you being older. Just more, well, old school mentality in a new school medium.
I'd still use it if it didn't create problems when it's scanned. And it doesn't age well. It can yellow or shrink or both.
I was admiring that in Joe's gallery on ComicArtFans, nice to see the full process on this. As for Zip, I love Matt Wagner's How-To-Zip-A-Tone story in the first Batman Black & White. Beautiful work Kevin!
Wow!! what memories, I love this 2 pages. Great work !!Tomás.
I am glad the novelty hasn't worn off yet. So you are still posting. Thanks for the joy. I was wondering if you would have the time, then maybe you could take a look at my work. I am a concept artist working in an animation studio.http://question-of-art.blogspot.com/
Nice work! I especially like the sketches.
Thanks for posting the prelims Kevin. It's a treat to see how it all came to fruition. An amazing piece of artwork that hangs proudly in my home.
