AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #638 Page 29. 2010.
Ink on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

The narrative of One Moment in Time jumps back and forth between two eras in Peter Parker's life, but when I was just beginning to pencil, I neglected to keep those eras organized in my mind. Joe Quesada had given me a 3D Sketchup model of Parker's current apartment. Although a great resource, I was a tad too eager and used it in one of the flashback scenes. I didn't realize it until my editor pointed it out to me on the finished pencils.


You may also notice that the perspective of the outside buildings is a bit off. Those were just flat backdrops to give a sense of the outside world. They may look okay from one angle, but not others.

  1. That arc was so well done. Your work was the best part of it!

    I forget~ was this before or during you and your dad started working together?

    1. Thanks, Narciso! I inked this one myself... may have been the last story I inked.
