Symmetrical book stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.

Here’s a little bit of a different take on the blank sketch cover craze that the publishers are currently in.  Blanks are pretty awesome ways to get your favorite artist to do a sketch for you at conventions on.

I started cutting them and making hand cut die cut blank variants, I just cut the cover, and the actual cover image provides the color portion of the cutting.

A few recent ones I’ve done. Deadpool

Who is Deadpool?

Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a fictional character, a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in The New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991).

A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, and later in issues of X-Force. The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable. The character, known as the “Merc with a Mouth”, is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to “break the fourth wall”, which is used by writers for humorous effect. Deadpool was ranked 182nd on Wizard magazine’s list of the Top 200 Comic Book Characters of All Time; ranked 45th on Empire magazine’s list of The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters, and placed 31st on IGN’s list of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.

Here are a few blank sketch variants I’ve recently completed.  Some are available in the shop.  A blank sketch variant is actually an entire comic book with a blank front and back cover.  So, you can get your favorite artist to draw a sketch on it, or you can do one yourself.  Everyone should take a shot at one of these, it’s fun and you get your own personalized comic book that is a true one of one.  I have a couple of blank’s that have not been drawn on as of yet, so if there is something you’d like done please give me a shout and I’ll be happy to work something out for you.  It’s a good way of getting original art without breaking the bank.  And they make great gifts for comic book fans.

Here are a couple of Marvel blank variant covers I whipped up recently.   Blank variant covers are real comics, with the regular insides.  The only difference is the cover is blank on the front and back.

 

Here is an Uncanny X-Men #1 with a pencil sketch of Deadpool.

And an X-Men #7 with a colored sketch of Magento.
