Amazing Spider-Man #641, Cover. 2010.
Watercolor and gouache on Illustration Board, 11 x 17".

I was going to write a post on sculpting tools today, but yesterday slipped away from me... still recovering. Your consolation prize is a first look at the last cover of the One Moment in Time series. This is one of the few times an image just came to me, fully-formed, and I probably owe more than a little to Coles Phillips.


  1. OMG, that is EPIC. I love it. And I want it.

  2. Such a cool effect! You pulled it off awesomely, definitely catches the eye!

  3. This is absolutely beautiful!! I love all your works, but i think this is my favourite.

  4. Thanks so much, guys!

    I'm afraid the art has already been claimed by a certain editor-in-chief.

  5. one of your best cover ever!!

    this is such a lyric representation of Spidey and MJ.

    this time you were unreachable.

  6. That's amazing. I love her hair!

  7. Thank you, thank you! Wait 'til you see the reference for it.

  8. Dude! Dude! Duuuuuuude! That. Is. Beautiful. Damn.

  9. I really hope the reference ends up being you... holding yourself... with your hair flowing in the wind. Now THAT'S some wacky reference.
    In all seriousness though, this piece puts the amazing in Spider-Man. Kudos to you.

  10. Thanks, guys. And yes, Wednesday will feature a couple great shots of me embracing myself.

  11. Gorgeous.

    Can't wait to see you in a red wig underwater...

  12. You're going to have to wait, Michael. I'm sorry.

  13. And every one of them words rang true
    And glowed like burnin’ coal
    Pourin’ off of every page
    Like it was written in my soul from me to you
    Tangled up in blue.

  14. Early one morning the sun was shining
    I was laying in bed
    Wond'ring if she'd changed it all
    If her hair was still red

  15. This is one of the most beautiful comicbook covers I ever saw! The comicbook with this cover is in stores here in Brazil now, and I loved it! The story is great and your drawings are really good! I loved the metal outfit that Iron Man uses in the "astral projection" sequence, which changes at his will. :)

    1. Thanks, Ceridwen. Glad to hear OMIT has finally made it down there.
