My first love was newspaper comic strips (can you guess which was my favorite?). My second love was super-hero comics, especially Marvel's "Fantastic Four" (which led John Byrne to create what analogous super team?).
I've mashed up my favorites to get this team snapshot. Not totally thrilled with the composition, but inspiration struck and took root, so I rushed to get things done, working in spurts around other priorities. Still, it was a challenge, finding a balance between two very different art styles (one of extreme minimalism, the other of extreme detail), hence the flat colors and dearth of modeling.
Most important, I had FUN. Itch scratched.
