BARTKIRA covers 1-6: COMPLETE!
As soon as I heard about the BARTKIRA idea, I jumped at the chance to contribute pages. The editors told me that the 2,200 pages had already been assigned to 400+ artists (within days!), but encouraged me to try my hand at the covers. I drew the Vol. 1 cover as an experiment, but got such a positive response that I went ahead and obsessively drew Volumes 2-6 without much sleep in the past 2 weeks.
Blatantly copying Katsuhiro Otomo’s covers was a fun and enlightening exercise. That being said, apologies to Otomo and The Simpsons people for all the liberties I took with their creations! I’m excited to follow all the new Bartkira artwork as they trickle in from the many talented artists/fans involved.
