Look! Up in the Sky!

Superman turned 70 this year. Can you believe it? Still going strong, too, I think.
I drew this for a drawing jam on the Drawing Board. If you think the costume looks different it's one of Joe Shuster's early Superman designs.

I added the halftone effect for nostalgia's sake.

Wow! I really dig it... especially the "zip-a-tone" for the old comic feel. Well done, sir!

Thanks Craig! Yeah, I wanted to go back to basics and see what made Superman's costume so iconic by figuring out where his costume design came from. Glad you like it.

rls, hey drop me a line a aglassact4u@yahoo.com if you would. I etch glass, like steins and pints and stuff. Your work is awesome and it would be even more awesome etched on glasses or even on framed sheet glass. I have a wholesale program and my stuff is pretty inexpensive. you could sell this stuff easy I think. holler at me. Dave
