Fine Art Pieces

In the summer of '94. I read a compilation of the Superman story (comic book series). I was always a Superman fan, but I was buzzin with the Man of Steel. In front of me, I had the most incredible collection of Superman art and the drive to emulate it. I spent about a month sketching the collage out on illustration board. After 12 hours of cutting the frisket (clear coating used to mask your art in airbrushing) I laid all the color in about 6 days. I spent another 3 weeks inking and using colored pencils to finish it up.

I wanted to release it and have it sold in every comic book store their was, but DC comics didn't like that. So it now sits as a limit edition print.

In 1999 I had the great honor to become friends with one of the original creators of Superman, Dr. Jay Morten. He scripted the original series and all the movies. He gave me a autographed picture with the original comic book character.

The original airbrush is framed along with the autograph photo of Dr. Jay Morten and is still for sale.
