marvel on the brain . . .

Been working on a project using established characters in the Marvel "Super Hero Squad" style:  Three fingers, shorter legs, bigger heads. etc.  

I've also been having an absolute ball recently reading Marvel Essentials reprints (Avengers and Defenders currently).  The nostalgia fix aside I get a real kick out of seeing the art from my current POV and am pleasantly surprised that much of it holds up today.

Some of those 60's and 70's covers still give me a jolt.  

So in tribute to one of the greatest, here's a take on John Buscema's Silver Surfer using a style similar to that used at Hasbro over the past few years.

It was fun - and I plan on doing a few more of these as time permits . . .
