This is an illustration I did for Patrick Ballesteros’ “Sweethearts, BFFs, and Bromances” show at The Perky Nerd in Burbank, CA.
It is my tribute to one of comics’ favorite duos brought to movie life- Rocket Raccoon and Groot! I’ve always liked their polar opposite personalities, and I really want to capture the 80’s-90’s charm of the Guardians of the Galaxy. My thought was, “what could be better than the cheesy photo shoot backdrops?” Nothing, obviously! Hope you all enjoy this!
If it gets a good response, I’ll set aside time to celebrate the soon-to-be new freakin’ Guardians in a similar fashion!
Thanos stands victorious on my cover for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: The Telltale Series No.5, revealed in this month’s Marvel Previews (for comics shipping in November). Tried some new artistic tricks on this mini-series, and I think I learned a thing or two. Kind of like this traditional line art + paint style, but what do you guys think? And how’re you guys enjoying this series so far, two issues in? @telltalegames
