This is one of my favorite pieces. It has taken me
seven years to get this framed, mainly because my local
guy went out of business and I didn't get around to
looking for someone else.

Everyone I have shown it to tells me I have it upside
down. LOL

Looks stunning, Wilson. Gives me a rush of blood to the head just looking at it!

The sharp and simple line work makes this piece stand
out! Awesome!

Wonder if JB turns that "upside down" when working on it or approaches it as seen?

Having a father who was an architect, I started out imitating what I saw him do, which included taping his paper to the board. After years of doing this with my own pages (long before I turned pro), it dawned on me that Dad did it because he needed all the straight lines in the plans he drew to be perfectly parallel. But I wasn't dealing with straight lines, mostly, so one day I took off the tape and allowed myself to actually turn the paper to fit the position of my hand,

Which is a long way of saying I drew that Daredevil piece "upside down" from the intended viewing position.

Being new to this board I have to say I am envious of all these wonderful commissions. I have yet to be tapped on the shoulder for a commission from JB but my hope is to get a nice Blastaar from FF4. Always had a soft spot for underutilized bad guys.

That would be a long unnecessary abbreviated Fantastic Four. On my first coffee.

Andrew, do you mean "Sub-Mariner from FF#4" or do you mean "Blastaar from FF#62"? I think the confusion is that Blastaar was introduced in issue #62 and not #4. Although, I don't know about any other Fantastic Four series so perhaps in a different FF book he was in issue #4?

Ha! I was just saying from Fantastic Four...no issue number. My brain couldn't decide if I wanted to abbreviate it FF or F4 so I just combined everything. Just him shooting energy blasts out of his hands is my thought.

The art is great and the time travel is awesome.
