Captain America and Daredevil



Found these in the recesses of my hard drive today. Done about 8 years ago for a Marvel pin-up book of some kind. These formed part of an ad for a diner serving Cap's Apple Pie and Daredevil's Burger Without Fear and Billy-club sandwich.

Would you bite into a pie cooked by a national symbol who looked at you like that?

Mimi Cortazar said...

Look's great :) nice color...

Burger without fear...Oh man it's a gem :-)

Sean... these are just plain creepy, they actually scare me more than any zombie or psychopathic criminal that you have ever drawn. At the same time, they're gorgeous.

Ok, Ok! I get the feeling you pull those not of your hard drive, but the alternate reality version "Sean Phillips/Beta" or something!

I've been reading you since I'm a teen... So much greatness... does this ever stop? Just ridiculous... pfff ;)))

Amazing work Sean, great stuff!
I know it is probably an impossible question, but do you remember how long each one took you to do? and what medium did you use?

Sean Phillips said...

Lee, probably took a couple of hours each maybe. Done in Painter.

Mark Clapham said...

Two hours? Wow. Not having ever done art myself, I asked my former art student missus how long she thought these took. She suggested two... days. Amazing.

Great work. Even though it's digital it has the feel of classic american mag illustration and ad work

Steve Denton said...

if Norman Rockwell had worked for Marvel this is what he would have done

Really funny! hahahaha

Nice job!

I love them!

Parka said...

Nice. Bet there are lots of opportunity for working with fast food restaurants as well.

Wonderful stuff Sean. I've followed your work since the Hellblazer days and it just keeps getting better!

Great little nuances like the shine on DD's teeth and the steam from the pie.

Wasn't Painter a shitty program to use until recent versions? All I know is it lets some artists I know stay in Mac OS 9..
