The Fantastic Four

Well, Comic-Con is over, and it was a wonderful experience.  Now I'm back at in my studio, trying desperately to catch up on all the emails and work that I neglected during my week away.  I thought it'd be nice to post something comic-related, so here's a painting of the Fantastic Four I did for a friend.  It's an homage of sorts to a classic Jack Kirby cover, featuring the FF and the first appearance of Galactus and the Silver Surfer.

This one was painted in gouache and ink on board.
