So for the past mount I’ve been developing my own web comic called “The Youth” so I though I’d post up the cover page I made as well as the first page and some character designs.

Once I get the ball rolling the comic will be about the main character, David, an average high school student, who lives in the future where everyone has superpowers, except him.

However, until I get the story fully developed Im going to make single page stories just to keep the artistic juices flowing!

I always prefer my pencils to when I go through and ink and color, so I decided to do only pencils and have the finished pages done entirely in my Moleskine sketchbook (hence the cover)

hope you enjoy!

Good evening my good sirs and madams my name is Michael Kemp: Co(s)mic Illustrator.

here’s a link to my website: mkempillustration.com
I just finished this  illustration about a month ago and entered it in a contest to hopefully be the cover art for AFI’s new single “A Deep Slow Panic”  It went through a lot of different stages…
I initially envisioned it as a black and white graphite rendering but soon realized that I am more of a pen and ink kinda guy so I stuck to my usual method of focusing on the line work and coloring it in photoshop, this time around however I wanted to add an ink wash texture to the black-ness, so I did a few ink washes and scanned in my favorites and dropped um into photoshop which helped ad the “airiness” that I initially wanted to get with the graphite approach. 

I also made a pin-up for my friend’s all-ages comic Ragged Rider : Tales of a Cowboy Mummy, I really enjoyed making my own type with brush and ink rather than digitally making the type (something I though I would never enjoy!)

Finally, the last drawings are a promo cover and some character designs for a comic I am working on. Hopefully will get developed enough to pitch to some companies. Working on having some more work form this project to show soon.

Cheers!

Matt Landis explaining one of many reasons why I was disappointed in Man of Steel. He also made Chronicle (2012), which I really loved and is definitely worth watching.

Superman/Batman #79, Written by Chris Roberson, Art by Jesus Merino, Colors by Pete Pantazis
“I was helping my cousin, the Superman of the 5th dimension, deal with an invasion of carnivorous colors from the outer spectrum.
But then my 5-D hearing picked up Batman’s distress signal, and I came running.”
I’ve been on a real DC One Million kick recently, and I read this two issue, millennia spanning storyline written by Chris Roberson a few days ago on comixology because of it. I was not disappointed.
World’s Finest 1 Million.

Here’s another infographic I did for HalloweenCostumes.com, this time illustrating the history of the emblem on Superman’s chest.

Until I researched this, I had no idea just how many variations the shield went through in its first five years, before they settled on the classic design that went mostly unchanged for over five decades.

My previous infographic (illustrating the evolution of Iron Man’s armor) can be seen here.

Somebody on Twitter was bitching about how they wished the Man of Steel chest emblem was more “historic” or something and I wanted to be like, “Son, which historic chest emblem do you mean?”
