I received my blank variant sketch cover I did recently for Fathom volume 7 number 1 based on Michael Turner's original cover and Siya Oum's current Aspen Matthews design back from CGC today. 9.8!!! WOOT WOOT!!!. Below is the original post I wrote for the cover idea. I've also added another variant cover for Fathom volume 7 number 1 illustrated by another of my all time favorite artists, Mike DeBalfo.
There are so many amazing artists out there who have influenced me over the years. I would love to be able to meet each and every one of them to say thank you some day.
So if you see this Aspen Comics, please keep up the amazing work! You guys are truly my favorite. I know Michael Turner is continuing to watch over you and is proud of each of you for all your hard work!
Also, thank you Mike DeBalfo for continuing to be an inspiration. Keep up the beautiful work!
I wanted to do a tribute to Michael Turner when I picked up this Fathom volume 7 #1
blank variant cover. I see so many variations of classic covers when series are relaunched. However, I haven't seen @aspencomics
do this yet. If they have, I am unaware of it. I wanted to do a tribute to Michael Turner and still keep true to @siyanimation
current Aspen Matthews design. So I used the Fathom volume 1 #1
Michael Turner cover and started sketching the image on this variant. I have added Oum's current outfit design to Aspen in the image as a waive of sorts to the current series.
I know I will never be able to do Michael Turner's art justice, but I have been having fun being able to see each line, every detail and the time he invested in his beautiful work while I am trying to capture some of the spirit he had for his creation.
R.I.P. Michael Turner, you are greatly missed.
