The large commission is my goal.  Want the 30x40, but of course I must save...I mean come on!  You want money??  You are an artist!!  The art is the reward!!

The only problem with the big ones will be wall space, seems when my house was designed we wanted a bunch of light.  Lots of windows, not a lot of wall space. What was I thinking???

My house presents a similar problem. Lots of wall space down here in the
Studio, but upstairs -- well, courtesy of the open floor plan and the large
windows, the living room only has one real wall! Same for the dining room -
- a wall at each end, windows and nothing on either side. Meant retiring a
lot of the stuff I had on the walls back at Stately Byrne Manor.

This is the 2nd commission that made me jealous, the first being The Batman over Wolverine.   Congrats to the Christos for a great request,  and thanks to JB for doing Thanos.

I wonder if Captain America is thinking "Shield please be indestructible , please be indestructible"

Notice the little scraps flying off Cap's shield? He's more likely thinking
He's vastly more powerful than me, but I must find a way to defeat him!

Incredible. I like how Thor's lightning and Thanos' blast form part of the border (I'm sure there's a term for this) while the smoke from Iron Man's arrmour goes "through" the panel.

Hadn't noticed the shield scraps, and yes Cap being a hero, would be thinking like a hero.

JB: concerning the shield scraps, and other small details treats,  do folks generally find them or do we lose the tree's in the forest?

Of course now it's got me wondering what would Batman do, if it was him instead of Captain America.

Bryan - if it was Batman instead of Cap I'd sure hope he'd jump aside or something, what with him not carrying an unbreakable shield. ;)

And now I got to wondering about how a similar JLA vs. Darkseid battle scene by JB would look...

Both are called "breaking the border". Wish there was something snazzier,
but the "insider" terms tend to be kinda dull!

Years ago, I saw an ad in TV GUIDE for one of those godawful "dogs
playing poker" prints. Trying to imbue it with some kind of artistic
integrity, the ad copy writer coined the term "slow discovery" to describe
how, the longer you look at the thing, the more you will "notice" -- like,
o, look! The bulldog is wearing an eyeshade!

Sheesh.

Anyway -- in my own work, I have somewhat co-opted the term "slow
discovery". Emulating Giles, my favorite British cartoonist, I like to put
little bits of business into my work that may not be apparent the first
time you look, or maybe even the 101st time, but will be there waiting for
the eventual "discovery".
