I haven’t forgotten, John….

A couple of years ago, I spent some time doing these little blue and graphite pencil sketches and selling them on eBay to make a few extra bucks. It was fun to draw characters that I’d never had the opportunity to work with before– and to have the freedom to do whatever I wanted to do. It didn’t really matter whether they sold or not, I was just having fun with them. This BLACK CANARY piece is one of the sketches I did to sell– and I made a scan of it to keep for “posterity” (or my own ego, I guess. Actually, with the wonders of modern technology, I can now keep nice clean scans of all my work and save them digitally to remember them by long after the original artwork is gone. I love our modern times).

I have a friend named John Cogan who lives in California, who when he saw this piece on eBay asked me to do a fuly realized, inked re-creation of it. John had sent me some amazing pencil copies of a David Williams LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT story that will most likely never see print, as well as a GEN 13 cover (original art…!) that is just stunning. I’ve always been a huge fan of David’s work, and John knows this. So, he asked for the BLACK CANARY re-creation in exchange. I’m still going to do it, John…. I promise. It’s just hard to get to side stuff when I’m so caught up with my monthly “chores”.

But I’ll get it done….!
