Wow ... my latest piece reminded Twitter fans of Frank Miller's work!


I don't get graphic novel style projects often, but they are such fun when I do, I hope to get more soon. One of my Twitter author followers, @MikeWhitacre, commissioned me to re-vamp his former avatar. We discussed what his original logo represented and the results and mood he wanted for his new logo.

We shared it on Twitter first and I was gifted with some awesome comments, like:  "Very Film Noir - James Ellroy", "As soon as I saw it I thought Sin City", "I also though Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hamnett" & "Very Frank Miller". Isn't that the coolest? We illustrators (those into his style) bow in homage to Frank Miller if he so much as thinks about picking up a pen/pencil. Look him up and I'm sure you'll recognize his work.

Mike also has it featured on his blog, too. Be sure to stop at one or the other of his sites and let him know what you think of his new logo.




Until next time...

  1. Quality work, very well done! Good blog post, too. Though you might want to put that "r" after the "F" in the title. (Says "Fank Miller"). Other than that, very inspiring.
