Here’s my process for the new cover of House of Twelve #6, debuting at SPX next month. With only a day or two left until it had to go to the printer, the books interiors were complete, but I still lacked a cover. I needed something that reflected the nature of the book, which is a print collection of digital comics we did in 2010-2012 with some new material. I came up with the idea of scribes in the middle ages who would copy books by hand, creating new copies of previously created stories, I did a little research and found a great image that would suit my needs with a bit of tweaking (replacing one of his pens, or knives I think, with an iphone, and turning poor Edwine the scribe into myself). I imported the image into Manga Studio 5 EX and started the process of swiping a piece of art from a thousand years ago. The entire thing took about five hours, from concept to completion.
Cover for the never released, or I guess soon-to-be released, House of Twelve Monthly #5. Look for us at first light at SPX.
