So here we are in 2016 and I am knee deep in work. That's a really great thing. I have high hopes for the new year and I am excited about the possibilities ahead. That's the way it should be, right? I hope it's good for everyone.
So many people know that I am a huge Indiana Jones fan. I wanted to do a new piece with him and I wanted it to be a bit more than just his face this time. I have had such good response to my "newspaper" paintings (Superman, Spider-Man, Batman) that I thought I would try to use that as a theme again only that I figured that the Saturday Evening Post would be much more fitting for the time period that Indy lives in. Plus it let me play in two of my favorite illustrators sandbox. I surely didn't rush this one either as I slowly let it simmer as I worked out ideas and composition. I am really happy how this one came out.
Also, here is not only the pencil version of the painting, but my oldest Indiana Jones drawing I still have!!
