So…. Coming back to The Future–ians….

Sometime ago I learned that Dave Cockrum’s The Futurians were coming back to life through the hands of one Clifford Meth. The Futurians always puzzled me as a book, but I always enjoyed it. So Clifford, in an effort to bring back some of Cockrum’s legacies downright, created a Kickstarter fund for the project.
  Now, you have to understand I have a bucket list of projects I’ve wanted to work on. SHAZAM! Is one of them. The Futurians are in the high twenties. (Yes… They are numbered in order in my mind. ) and since I’m figuring that they’ve already got someone for the title, I figured I’d donate some art to the cause. I’m usually so busy that I don’t have time to do something like that,so you have to also understand what MOTIVATION means in my visual dictionary. I thought also that I could get Bob Wiacek, a legendary inker in the industry who was/is working on the project, to ink this piece I’m about to repost. Once I finished the art, and sent it to Bob, I couldn’t wait to see his lines on my work. I mean, dude….
 …… It was going to be for free in one aspect… Because he’s inking the book… And in another aspect, this man has inked Paul Smith, John Romita Jr. And John Byrne.
 I simply had to know what his talent jamming with mine would look like.
 But after a week and a half, going on two, I suddenly realized that Bob was getting swamped under the weight of his own work concerning The Futurians, and that his working on my piece was going to be a fast and furious pipe dream. And I needed to see it done, so I wound up inking it myself.
  I guess we can’t get what we want all the time. But I understand the situation. Trust me. BELIEVE me, paying work before pleasure work.
 So here it is, my inks on an INSPIRED piece of art for a book that I hope will create great steam in the industry in the near….. Well… The FUTURE!
 Hope yuh likes. 🙂
