Fan Expo 2010 Commissions—Captain America

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Captain America. 2010. Watercolor on paper,  9 x 12".

Here's the last of the Fan Expo commissions from August. I painted this in my hotel room while taking a break from the con floor (my apologies to anyone who stopped by during that period). Next up will be the batch from the New York Comic Con (about a dozen in all). I also have 3 new covers to show, but I don't know when they'll be made public. I still haven't gotten to any sequential work, but I'm in the midst of my super-secret project right now. It's easily one of the coolest things I've ever worked on and I'm having a blast. Painting starts today.

Have a great weekend!

P.S. Thwip! I thought I'd share this one last photo from Toronto—Spider-Artist (me), Spider-Man, and Spider-Editor (Steve Wacker). I like how Spidey brought his game-face to the picture.


  1. Thanks again for the awesome Cap commission, Paolo. I hope to hit you up for a Mary Jane next time. :)

  2. You're quite welcome, Josh. And I'm always happy to paint MJ—she's a pleasure to paint.
