The Crimson Avenger was my 23rd job for Damon and my first time over Mike Grell. I’ve inked quite a few artists heavily-inspired by Neal Adams but Grell was a challenge since he used very few blacks and a whole lot of sweeping, gestural lines. Once I jumped in and got the swing of things I had a ball and thought it came out pretty good for my first crack at Mike. The 11X17 commission was inked with brush, marker, Pitt brush markers and the shadow lines done with a black litho crayon. It was completed by 10/30/2004.
