Sketchbook: Entry 6, Pulp!
The Spider Strikes!
From the Pulp file and right out of my Sketchbook, I have a couple of sketches that I worked on with Joe Gentile at Moonstone Books for approval of our design of the classic pulp hero. Moonstone laid out there plans and ideas to introduce The Spider into their new paperback prose line. Joe gave me the specifics that the licensor was asking for: The Spider ring, suit, cape, gloves, hat, wild hair, fangs (no hunchback) and they wanted me to design an original mask. Moonstone presented our original design and drawing to Argosy which was well received. After a couple of adjustments, Moonstone was given the green light to move forward on the project.
Coming up this week end, April 25 - 27 is the Windy City Pulp and Paperback Convention at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center. 70 Yorktown Shopping Center in Lombard, Illinois. More info: www.windycitypulpandpaper.com
