Archie by Ramón Pérez

okay, it's sunday night and i'm halfway there.

i was hoping to get this done before the week was out, but i was a guest at the new toronto wizard world this weekend which put an end to that thought. however i will try to ink it up before the end of next week and append it to this post.

unlike my fellow twarters i wanted to keep the classic feel of archie but render it more akin to the the newspaper strips of the era like juliet jones by stan drake. i also went so far as to steal a piece of americana by using a composition from a classic norman rockwell image which i have included bellow...

That's a perfect casting and adaptation: can't wait to see the final piece, Ramon, it's looking gorgeous already! :D

Still hoping to see this one inked. Though I am stoked to see a new Kukuburi update. Doesn't matter to me what Ramón is working on, it's all good.
