Wizard Wildcats cover no logo by jimlee00 Wizard Wildcats cover no logo by jimlee00
Just to show I can draw something not Batman related...an old cover for Wizard sans logo, cropping and whatnot. Wanted to go for 60's pop art coloring style/presentation.

Inks by Scott Williams. Colors by Alex Sinclair. Project still in the works. I wish I didn't have to sleep. So much more productive that way...

I took a shot at inking it over blued pencils 11x17 without ever have seen Stott's amazing inks until now. I hope you don't mind.

Aw man, that brings back memories.  I'm pretty sure I still have a box of old Image comics stuff in the basement.  Jim, you were always my favourite comic artist.  Always blew me away, no matter what project you were working on.  Glad I stumbled across this.  :)

I loved your stuff on Wild C.at.s. I followed you from X-men to Image Comics back in the 90's & I thought your work on Wild Ca.t.s & Deathblow just blew the marvel stuff outta the water.

Hey Jim it's been a while. You don't know me but I was a fan for years till I stopped reading comics. I've always loved your work. You're the only guy I think who did the X-Men Justice.
Peace.

I know exactly how you feel! I wish I could clone myself for menial things like sleep and eating. That still might not work...

Anyway, love the image. It is still great going back and reading all of those great Wild C.A.T.S. issues. Any chance you'll do some more?

Insomnia kills. If all else fails, Mr. Coffee would do the trick.

Very cool look. The background gives the image that feel for the era. Especially with the printing dot look.

The Pop Art Movement was a really interesting all on its own. Lichtenstein was one of my personal favorites during that era using the Comic style in his work.

I have a question I was hoping you could help me with. It has to do with the thin and thickness of lines. How do you do so? It seems that you use an angled or flat-edged or chisseled type of pencil or pen to give your lines more depth. Can you please tell me how you produce line where portions are thin and others are thicker? Id really appreciate the help.

goddamn, i remember picking up WildC.A.T.s back in the day and it was the first series that got me seriously into comics, and Grifter was without a doubt the baddest sonuvabitch ever. just wanted to say thanks for creating such awesome characters and continuing to use your skills to make awesome artwork.

although i'm not a comic artist or illustrator (but rather motion graphics design/animation), your work was always a source of inspiration for me even as a young'n.
