(PLANNED) DUBLIN COMIC CON POSTER




















Howdy. Just put up the original layout for this piece on the Micks blog, but sure i might as well put the finished version up here while i'm at it. I made the main character a bit bigger than planned in the layout; a suggestion of Thompson's if i recall correctly. The two characters are from a planned graphic novel by a mate o' mine, so it's ultimately a bit of a fan pic, really. The Dublin Con was supposed to be on this month but was rescheduled. Instead, us Micks are doing this.

Dec.

Hey Luke, sorry; forgot to reply to this.

Yeah, he has a GN planned, but it'll be a while before it comes out; he's DC exclusive at the moment. Actually; he was out on Saturday... i could have introduced you... sorry!
