Sleepy Hollow #1 BOOM! exclusive cover by kevinwada
Sleepy Hollow #1 BOOM! exclusive cover
I was only mildly familiar with the show before this assignment but I had to take the job.  It was all just too exciting for so many reasons.  I was nervous with the composition we picked out for it, fearing it too simple and safe, but in the end, I think it was the right call and the reaction to this cover has been so amazing.  All my fears were for nought ;).

I could not be more excited to be tackling DC characters now.  Overall, the colors are what I'm happiest with here.  I think some details were lost in the atmosphere and fall off of info and darkness but lesson learned.  More to come, you skittles.
She-Hulk Issue #11 by kevinwada
She-Hulk Issue #11
Bam!  For some reason I've been really into tight, claustrophobic compositions as of late.  You'll see.  I had the shortest turnaround ever with this one (well, maybe not ever) but Jeanine Schaefer at Marvel is the best editor, and trusted me completely.  Because of that, I just attacked this one with confidence and delusion and I think that worked to my favor.  There was no other choice but to get it done asap so it meant a lot of decisions were made on the fly or unconsciously.  I think I need more of that in my work.

The Pride, if you don't know, is a wonderful creator-owned title about LGBTQ superheroes, by Joe Glass.  Go check em out at:

Another cover I was pleasantly surprised with.  Wicked + Divine feels like a series tailor made for me.  Gods as pop stars in ridiculously chic and over the top goth fashion.  I was a kid in a candy story.  I can only hope Kieron and Jamie ask me to do more covers for them because this one did not feel like work one bit.  It was a treat.

I just wanted to say that you're a huge inspiration and the reason I got into Marvel and your work is so beautiful and the way you color is gorgeous, you're a HUGE influence and you seem like a great guy. So basically I'm just saying that you are actually my favorite visual artist and your art impacts me.

I was browsing the dA front page, and your stuff really jumped out at me. I couldn't quite figure out what I was initially, but I think I've got it now. The only way I can describe it is confident. The lines are so fine and elegant, and from what I can tell, you only use a single stroke per line. To me, that demonstrates a marvelous confidence in your ability, and I'd say that it's very well-placed, because your art is stellar. I got lost in your gallery. Because of this, and your fantastic use of posing and your design sense, I find your artwork, especially the HeroesCon stuff, to be very, very, VERY compelling, and for that, I've got to give you a watch. I rarely ever make long-winded comments like this, but I just had to let you know that I'm fascinated by your style and I can't wait to see more! Keep doing what you do, and I'll keep gawking over it.
