This is arguably my most detailed and best work as an illustrator, in what I like to think is a pretty formidable career. While I used only the traditional mediums, black ink and actual physical brush and it really requires the modern medium of NFT in order to been seen/exist properly. And it was important to me to have this minted, to live on the blockchain.

This was originally drawn, then inked by hand with a no.0 brush. If you've never used or even seen one...they come to a point as fine as a needle. And there is no functioning industrial printing press that could capture all these lines and all the detail.

Even more tragic, this original illustration (done at around 16inches by 10inches) needed to be reduced to about 70% to be comic book size, meaning that there are lines you see here that in print are muddy, less crisp, rasterized...if they even showed up at all. Add color to that and it's even more diminished in even the best effort an industrial press is able to reproduce. There is no functioning industrial printing press that could capture all these lines and all the detail in mass production.

Add to that, it was used as a Comic-Con International Exclusive and as the cover to the limited hardcover variant, so portions of it, got covered by logos, UPC codes, ect...the hardcover version only allowed for using the right hand side of this.

It is a HEARTBREAKING, when you look over a work that you spend 40 plus hours on, and much of it is not there for anyone to see.

BUT...as an NFT, every line can be seen, taken in, be as crisp and clear as possible. This is, as I said, so far arguably my greatest illustrative work. and until the advent of NFT's is was resigned to accepting that much of the detail and impact would be forever lost.

However it's here now. Every line every shard of glass, every dent, every wisp of smoke, to live on in the blockchain. I am profoundly proud of this piece. and extremely happy that, as an NFT, the work is finally all there to been seen.
