It’s an OMAC

the short of it is that about 4 years ago i did a cover text for marvel, which didn’t end up going anywhere. and then out of the blue commander riffraff (marvel editor Nick Lowe) emailed me with an offer to work for him. he at the time was the head of all the X-books. i assume he saw all my years of fan art of marvel characters. who knows. hopefully he chimes in (I’ve honestly never asked why i was hired. i didn’t want to jinx it). something I’ve seen help artists get hired, is that drawing fan art actually helps the editors foresee the work you’d potentially do for them if you are hired. so that way they can hire you for you, rather than try to mold you into something. they see how you draw a hulk, so they can put you on a project that you as an artist would fit the best on.
so yeah nick lowe emailed me, i said of course, but given i was going back to my final year of college i couldnt commit to interiors, so i was given a cover gig instead until nick could break me down and do a book for him.
