I saw this comic book cover for DC’s SOLO, which features the character Deadman drawn in a very non-comic bookish style by illustrator Teddy Kristiansen. I decided to draw superheroes myself in my style just to see how it would turn out. After toying with the virtually unknown Guardians of the Galaxy, I opted for a more well-known superhero team.

What I found is that I tend to adapt my style to match the tone of the piece—which is to say, I’ve ended up with a very colorful, pop-arty version of the 1963 fantastic four.
