This is the cover to Higher Earth issue 3, which was just unleashed for solicits today it appears. Sometimes the previews for my covers get chucked into the cyber-web without being colour corrected back from CYMK to RGB, and so they may look a little garish if one sees them on comics news sites. On tumblr however, I control the vertical, horizontal, and diagonal, as well as the colour profiles. One thing that ran thru my mind as I made this cover was how pretty much all the work I am doing now will be seen on those gorgeous GORGEOUS high definition tablet screens such as the new iPad, and how that affects what sort of detail I put into the art. This particular cover has some small figures, but it was important to ensure that when the digi-crowd zoom in on the art that there is something else waiting for them in the pixels, so I drew detail which wouldn’t normally show up in print with that in mind. And all for the same page rates! Us freelancers, we’re crazy.
