Happy 70th Birthday Marvel Comics!

Today is being celebrated as Marvel Comics' 70th anniversary in the publishing business.
Here is the tip of my hat to the comic that started it all--Marvel Comics #1.
If you are interested...the cover recreation was achieved by 1275 slashes of the Photoshop line tool in four weights: 2 pt, 3 pt,10 pt and 20 pt. Colors were sampled from a jpg of the original cover.
It took about an hour.
Happy Birthday House of Ideas!

Reminds of a Beanish look-see-show.


Very cool.

That's a lot of slats!

Charles Brownstein said...

That's awesome in a "what if Frank Miller & Gary Panter ever collaborated" way.

Larry Marder said...

Wow. They ARE slats. I was so busy thinking "Slash! Slash! Slash!" as I pummelled the screen with each fast stroke...I didn't even see the obvious in front of me.
This is probably because I, Larry Marder, was doing this rendering as opposed to Beanish doing it. Okay, that sounds pretty nutty.

This is great I think it would look awesome as a poster.
