15th Anniversary Questionaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 10:35 PM
Okay!  Let's give this a shot. :)

   How long have you been on DeviantArt?
8 years already--wow!

   What does your username mean?
It's a contraction of my actual name of course, that just happens to spell something out.  I've always loved Adam Hughes "Ah!" and Joe Madureira's "Mad!" signatures, and wanted something similar.  

   Describe yourself in three words.
Words fail me. ;p  (That's three, right?!)

   Are you left or right handed?
Right.

   What was your first deviation?
Probably long since deleted, but maybe a City of Heroes commission (?).

   What is your favourite type of art to create?
Definitely character-centric cover art.

   If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital painting.

   What was your first favourite?
Can't recall!  Probably a fantasy painting of some type.

   What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Digital paintings of pretty girls. Go figure.

   Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Unequivocally, Artgerm.

   If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Ha--see previous question!

   How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Certain deviants (Artgerm, Tahra, etc.) just set the bar so high.  For me, it's set up a standard to reach for and, hopefully, to live up to.

   What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop.

   What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My home office.

   What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
That first Daily Deviation.  I was beyond grateful for all the extra views and felt like I was finally getting somewhere as an artist, y'know?  That's the real magic of DA and the reason I intend to stick around long-term.  It's the best place to share with wonderful fellow artists and art aficionados. People have been nothing but gracious to me here, and it's still my favorite social media outlet, period, even after all these years.  Viva DA!

X-Men '92 #3 Variant Cover by DNA-1
X-Men '92 #3 Variant Cover
Definitely the most insane X-cover I've ever done!  X-MEN '92 silliness continues, this time on the cover of Issue 3.  Writers Chris Sims and Chad Bowers suggested "what if they were attacked by their own merchandise?!" and I took it from there.  Evil toys! Wolverine plushies!  Aw, yeah. 

Read all about the series here:

X-Men '92 #2 Variant Cover
As revealed on Marvel.com:  marvel.com/images/gallery/seri…

'90s X-Men insanity continues in our series of X-MEN '92 variant covers, where
 we're playing "What If?" a bit, imaging what it might've looked like if the classic X-Men vs. Arcade storyline from the comics had been adapted for the Animated Series.  Add in the American Gladitor vibe, murderbots, and sharks-with-laser-beams-on-their-heads, and you've got the perfect (most egregious?!) concoction of '90s nostalgia possible!!

Marvel's Secret Wars is rad.  This is part of it.  Buy a copy!  :D

SHIELD 50th Anniversary--Quake Cover by DNA-1
SHIELD 50th Anniversary--Quake Cover
Coming in September from Marvel--celebrate 50 years(!) of SHIELD with series of one-shot special issues, each highlighting a key character from the organization's storied history.  My issue features Quake, aka Daisy Johnson, who plays a primary role in Jonathan Hickman's incredible Secret Warriors series as well as the excellent AGENTS OF SHIELD tv series, which I love.  Artistically, I just wanted to do something bold and graphic with her unique power set, try to get the cover to pop when it appears on the comic stand.
