Daily Deviation

Given 2013-06-17
What will we see when we have two epic artists collaborate in making a new comic work? Definitely a very awesome, dynamic and striking artwork! `vest (colors) and *cbei (lines) were able to make a very astonishing artwork and you can see how their coloring and drawing skills go well in making WV Pop Con Cover: Fathom to life!

How the FUCK did I not see this? Vest, you and CB are a tag team duo that should be as classic as Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. Good grief, this is wonderful. Lines are clean and the colors are like watching someone play in the surf at sunset. Fantastic and congrats to both of you.

Congratulations are in order.

Well David. To repeat what Frank Mastromauro (Co-owner and President of Aspen Comics) said, "if Mike were with us today, he would have put his personal stamp of approval on it and let it go to press."

Mike was like a big brother to me, watched me grow as an artist and I am proud to call him a close friend. I was honored to be part of celebrating Fathom's 15th year anniversary and share that experience with you.

As much as I miss Mike, his legacy will be with us always. Aspen Comics have kept their word and honor Mike every day. His legacy is maintained each and every day they work hard, continue to bring creative ideas and share them to the mass, and play hard. For the few who personally knew Mike, he truly loved life. Every day he spent it to the fullest. He was in much pain for the better part of his last 6 years on this Earth. Every con he attended, his spirits were lifted with every passing fan. He gave more than most I know in the industry. He was the most humble man in the business. His fame never corrupt his humanity.

The cover was my birthday gift to his creator-own series. I was surprised and humble to have the opportunity to give Mike back something he gave me. 15 years ago I was given the opportunity to do background art for his series. I met him and he was generous to let me touch hi original work and "play hard". Mike was a simple and happy person. He gave me a chance and pushed me to do the best I could.

Mike loved his career. He worked hard, but did what he loved. Sure, he goofed off at work. He would often have video game and foosball challenges at the office just to detox. He worked to live, but somehow found a love that also balanced his life with living to work. Not many people find that happy place, but he did each time he picked up his pencil.

Anyways, support creativity, support independent comics, support local artists. Just support...

Thank you guys for loving the comic book cover. We look forward to sharing more work in the near future. We have other covers for Aspen Comics coming your way, stay tuned.

Thank you for sharing such a great tribute to Mike. He is an inspiration to many artists out there, especially to those that want to draw and create comics (myself included). This is a great tribute to him and his legacy. Thank you for sharing with us. This piece is worthy of a DD there is no doubt in that.

Well, this was fun. I got to admit, giving this piece to David was the best decision I made. I trust David's input and ability to collaborate on decisions. Expect a process journal made on my page in a day or so. We go through rounds of revisions and I could not tell you who altered what by the time the final piece is ready to show. We make changes and bounce ideas off each other. Sometimes I will do a quick overlay to show him what I was meaning, other times I will manipulate the actual .PSD and send that back to him for reference. Sometimes he will get it to the 95-98% and I will make my final tweaks and see what he thinks and if both agree, then we consider it done. I do not ever alter an image and cal it final without his approval. We both must agree on how it looks before we call it finished.

No, Aspen Matthews is from Fathom. Celebrating the 15th year since the comic book first was created by Topcow Comics. Now Aspen Comics also celebrating their 10th year anniversary.

As for Avatar, not even created until 2005.

Aspen is part of an underwater alien race. She, like her race can turn into water, manipulate water and control it.

Fathom was created by the very talented and superstar artist Michael Turner.

Avatar was not even developed until 2005.
