This month was Artist Edition month at IDW and I was asked to do a cover over Larry Hama’s pencils.  For this one I had to make it look like aged cover art. It was a fun job, and I even got to do a little hand lettering (the “yo joe!” and “Trouble in Sierra Gordo”. And well, technically the note to colorist on the side is my handwriting too, so I guess that counts as well.) Although the coffee stains were added in Photoshop, I did actually make a scan of a coffee ring on a piece of paper to use.

Here’s the sketch I got from Larry followed by the end result and how it looks in print.
