I've been very fortunate to get to work with the creators of the upcoming film, The Impersonators, by creating a series of fake comic book covers which will feature in the film:
Saving The Day Has Never Looked This Bad...A crime-ridden town hires a group of rag tag superhero birthday party impersonators to help clean up their streets. The impersonators soon find themselves in over their heads in a hilarious fight for survival..."
So, the job was to draw a selection of covers featuring the real superheroes who are impersonated by the birthday entertainers. Boy was it a treat to try and mimic the different styles (Golden, Silver, Bronze and Modern Age) of the American Comic Book timeline in order to add some history to the fake comic characters. Let me tell it to you now, I would be quite content if my day job was to sit at my drawing table and draw fake covers all day. I'd be as happy as a hippo helping himself to extra heapings of herbivorous hors d'oeuvres.
Without any further ado, here are the results:
Big Thanks to Joshua Hull, the film's director for hiring me for the job (and do yourself a favor and check out the comedy of the film's writer and star, Josh Arnold). It's been a blast.
And get yourselves ready happy little J&Rers, because next week they return in chapter two of Behold the Monitor! By Neptune's Barnacled Breeches! it promises to be a fun time for all.
See you next week!
