Uncle James' Wonderful World of Color

A lot of people have been asking about my color work, which is a lot harder to find than my linework. I'm a pen and ink man - but I do like the occasional color splash.

Most of my color work has been covers - but there are a few sequential pieces floating around here and there. A few years ago I produced a six page sampler (plus design work) in a bid to get the gig to turn Peter Beagle's THE LAST UNICORN into a graphic novel for Scholastic Grafix. It ended up going to my pal Mike Kaluta, but then the whole gig fell apart soon after, and nobody ended up doing it. But I do still have the pages I did - and if nothing else, it IS one complete scene, as comics, in color.

Up top is the cover of the presentation booklet, which I designed and Jeremy Owen produced (including the bound-in ribbon ties). I drew everything then did color guides in marker, and final digital color was done by Lon Saline and Jeremy here at Coppervale Studio. One page follows, and the rest are after the cut.











Plus, a few bonus character pieces:
