John “ring-a-ding” Romita is another one of those legends from the Golden/Silver/Bronze-age of Timely/Atlas/Marvel Comics, who is especially remembered for his long run on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, that I always hoped to get a shot at inking over and with this (presumingly) convention sketch “I hit the jackpot!”. “Jazzy” Johnny rendered Peter Parker’s once girlfriend, now wife (now not?) and I inked her with brush, Pitt brush marker and some gray wash to capture the soft, tonal, shaded areas where it looked like he rubbed his fingers into the graphite. This 8.5X11 image on paper was finished on 7/24/2006. ‘Nuff said, Tiger!
