Comic Book Style Numbers | Client: SCBWI
I had the wonderful opportunity to illustrate a set of twelve comic book style numbers for the upcoming issue of SCBWI’s mid-Atlantic magazine, The Highlighter. The numbers were for an article on twelve tips for writing graphic novels, by Eisner Award-winning author Paul Tobin (Bandette, Plants vs. Zombies). I have to say it was a real honor to be able to prove artwork for such an accomplished writer!
Many of the number designs are inspired by popular superheroes, such as Superman, Batman, Iron Man, The Human Torch, and X-Men’s Nightcrawler. Admittedly, the Fantastic Four one is a little on the nose but I’m still happy with how these all came out. You’ll have to be a SCBWI member to read the article, but you can check out larger versions of my artwork in the gallery below!
