  • Draw Like Marko

    marko.jpg

    The Newsarama Blog already linked this, but I want to too. Over at IGN artist Marko Djurdjevic walks everyone through a cover creation. I loved working with Marko on the first miniseries of X-Men First Class; I could give him the barest notion of what was to happen in an issue and he would come back with excellence that inspired me every time. My favorite was the Angel/Scarlet Witch romance issue, which I only suggested “make it look like a romance novel- but you know, cooler.” And now Marvel tries to make him draw the cover of everything, and somehow with that crazy schedule he keeps producing great pieces. He talks a little bit about what he does along the way, but he doesn’t reveal any particulars about his process- ie; he’s not stupid. You have to learn that stuff for yourself.

    Marko is a heck of a talented cat. The covers he did for the first mini were brilliant.

    By accident I just tried to find out what you were up to lately and landed right here. Man, I can’t even thank you enough for that sweet comment up there, it really put a big smile on my hairy face. Write me sometimes, I don’t bite. Í’d love to hear how you’re doing.

    Be well
