Heard Vic Chestnutt play in the 90's at the old Knitting Factory.
His live acoustic performance of his austere song, Swelters etched into memory.

Vic Chestnutt, no longer amongst the millions.

Preview of my WHAT IF special can be seen here.
Available this Wednesday at all fine comic shop establishments.
"What If special based on the seminal early 80s Daredevil run by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson!
By Karl Bollers (WOLVERINE: HUNGER) and Rafael Kayanan"
Portion from's review by Dave Wallace:
I probably would have given the issue a score of 3 bullets had it not been for the excellent artwork of Rafael Kayanan, which is strong enough to push it just above the average rating. The opening pages are particularly arresting, with a wonderfully moody close-up of Elektra that's followed by an explosive action shot of a wounded helicarrier, before giving way to some slightly more restrained flashback sequences. Even in these quieter scenes, however, Kayanan finds a way to make the pages visually interesting, with strong design elements in the artwork (for example, the page in which Stick disarms Elektra), a great use of light and colour (as seen in the montage page that shows Elektra training with Nick Fury) and some delicate handling of occasionally disturbing imagery (such as the aftermath of the massacre in the Kingpin's HQ, or the scene in which Elektra discovers the Advocate's "gallery").

Pipe Hitters Union is known for their line of military-centric apparel. Most of the customers are male but we've since had numerous inquiries for a women's line of shirts. Last summer I woke up very early in the morning with this image in mind. It sat in the hard drive for several months while I kept busy finishing another project.

Got a chance to return to it this week and finished it on the Cintiq and CS. Using one solid brush at 9 pixels.
