Sandman Studies (detail). 2010. Watercolor, gouache, and acylic on bristol board, 11 x 17".


  1. I wonder if this has something to do with the cover you mentioned earlier?

    Really cool concept though.

    I'm thinking you might not be doing anymore Spider-Man work, since they're changing the format of the comic and it appears like Slott will only be using Marcos Martin, Humberto and Caselli. Am I wrong in assuming this? Will you still be doing cover work?

  2. This was actually part of a larger page of Sandman studies I started last year in preparation for the ASM 615-616 covers. Just now getting them inked and colored.

    I'm still on Spidey for the time being, just doing back up stories to give the main guys a break (I couldn't do what Humberto is doing). I haven't started yet because I've got a ton of covers lined up. Will reveal as soon as I can!

  3. that one is really something. lyric in its semplicity.

  4. That is simply beautiful. Incredibly evocative piece.

    1. Thanks, Ken! (It's one of my personal favorites.)
