I’m slowly starting to catch up on a bunch of long overdue commissions. This one is of that classic DC task force team, The Suicide Squad!
If you’re unfamiliar with The Suicide Squad, here’s a link to their first story (it’s pretty great). They also appeared briefly in Darwyn Cooke’s The New Frontier. My illo is kind of a blend of these two things.
I also made another one of those color-progress animations for it which you can view HERE (flash required).
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned any bands/artists I’m in to. And since there’s a bunch off great stuff out now and on the way, I figure now’s as good a time as any.
I just discovered Freelance Whales last week, whom you can stream their whole album (due out in April) right now on Lala. I really dig their sound, both musically and lyrically. Kind of a blend of Postal Service and Sufjan Stevens.
