SO SO FREAKIN' happy you decided to join the fun, Mike, I knew you were going to knock it out of the park, and you did it, mi hermano, you did it :)
Love it!


Mike Hawthorne said...

Thanks everyone. I really do appreciate it.

This is much different then I had intended, but I ran out of time. So I'm glad you like it so much :)

I love everything about this - the composition, the backgrounds, the expressions - wonderful work, sir!

Mike Hawthorne said...

Thanks Chris. I appreciate it :)

Great job! I love lot about this picture including the way it is split horizontally and the contrast between the calm in the lower panel and the tension and anticipation in the upper panel.

Mike Hawthorne said...

Dave- Thank you! I appreciate the insightful compliment :)

Ramon - Thanks, man. You warm my heart! Now, I just hope I have time to get into an Italian Spideman piece! :)

WOW! This would hand nicely in my home. Prints available? If not, I will just revisit the sight daily to look at it.

Thanks for this.

Mike Hawthorne said...

HA! Thanks! Haven't made any new kinds of prints in a while, but do plan on a sketchbook soon.
