90's Flashback-Quasar!




I came across a bunch of pencils from my run on Quasar back in the 90's, the first book I penciled for Marvel. Ironically I followed the late Paul Ryan on the book, who I would also follow on The Phantom after he passed away.
  I experimented. a lot on this book. Mark Gruenwald wrote rich stories and I wish I had gotten to know him better as he was always very complimentary about my work. This issue was fun since I had the opportunity to draw The Eternals--another fun Kirby concept. When I started on the book I was doing a more "traditional" approach to penciling, having spent time in Al Williamson's studio and being a huge fan of his approach, as well as John Buscema, etc. But I think I saw the Cosmic Oddest by Mike Mignola and thought it was so good I wanted to try paring down the rendering and "push the forms more". Now I wince at a lot of the  nearly 30 year old drawing--but hey I was trying something new.
