The exhibit opens February 4th.
Todd Nauck has over 17 years experience in the comics industry. If you're into comics, you're probably familiar with his work for Image, DC and Marvel comics - Amazing Spider-Man, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Teen Titans Go, and Wild Guard, Young Justice and the Spidey and Obama teamup.
When he travels to comic shows and conventions each year, fans commission him to create artwork rendered in Copics. Recently, we were lucky enough to chat with Todd on Twitter about his art making process, his Marvel Custom Solutions projects, and the artwork he created for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Lance Briggs (and others) for the NFL Superbowl, and ESPN.
We asked him to explain his unique creative process. His approach - which involves first defining the form in color - deviates from the more conventional approach of starting with pencils, following up with inks, then finally adding color. Seems that @RAHeight also likes working this way: Judging from the dozen or more images he started posting, this method works very well for him. He chose the subjects from recommendations from his army of loyal Facebook and Twitter fans. A few images unveiled during the conversation (see all of them, here): During the Q&A session, Todd was answering questions from our audience. @Darksparkle asked about skin tone colors: Next, @WorkingClassGMR asked: Fellow Copic-loving artists @AH_AdamHughes, @CatStaggs and @MahmudAsrar each got shout outs for being inspirational Copic artists. If you love comics, follow these great artists and let Todd know you enjoy his Copic sketch cards! He's super interactive, and who knows - perhaps your suggestion will get chosen the next time the request lines are open...
On that note, what are your favorite comic titles? If you commissioned an original Todd Nauck Copic sketch, who would want him to draw? Let us know in the comments, below.
