How have I not uploaded this here yet? Insanity. Especially when I want all you lovely DA users to give me feedback. I had such a blast working on this cover - my first ever. Hopefully, I will get the opportunity to do more so go write tons of letters begging them to let me do more, old-school style. With handwritten, stamped mail and everything. Obviously, the cover if a riff on Downton Abbey, and it was at the suggestion of the head at Hastings Bookstore, which is where this was an exclusive. The show is just entering the roaring 20s, and so I wanted to really embrace that. The clothes were more fun and a bit easier on modern eyes in the 20s. I still tried to keep the older characters in more 1910s/20s cusp dressed, while the younger women were flapper central. Let me know what you think!

Probably THE best thing I have seen in a while. I just love it so much. Brilliant job capturing the style and executing it so well. Huge fan of your work. What medium did you use?

When I was in Hastings this evening, I saw this comic and got so excited, because I recognized your style! Of course I had to buy it too, and now it sits on my shelf. Keep up the great work!

Flapper Art Deco X-Men. This makes me wish X-Men was like this all the time.
