Andrew Robinson was a new name to me, but I really love his work!
He's a fantastic painter, as well as a fine penciler and inker.
I was very impressed by his pencil work shown here, and I know you
will be, too! And I hear he's a Mort Drucker fan, which gives him
a gold star in my book!
This is my rough for the cover to Dusty Star #2.
I knew I wanted to keep the same layout as the
cover for #1. It was just a matter of figuring
out what imagery would go in what panel. I like
this design because it acts like a sequential
trailer for the book. It sort of tells a mini
story but still leaves the viewer with lots of
questions. I decided to ink this rough because
the pencils had just become too messy. Which
shows that this one didn’t come easy.
Here are the pencils for a Dusty Star print. For
this design I studied the Blue Note jazz album
covers. They are all collected in a book which can
be found in most book stores in the music section,
though it should be in the art section under graphic design.
This is a layout for the cover to Dusty #2.
This one was just to help me explore other
options without turning my other design into
even more of a mess.
The finished painting from the rough shown in Rough Stuff #4.
