Detail of the day.


Here's an unused rough I drew for Julie Schwartz back in the '80s. He invited me to draw anything that came to mind and if he liked them he would get stories written to fit the cover.

  1. I'm getting to the point now where I can't remember if I've posted something already on here or not. Apologies in advance if I repeat myself.

  2. Do you draw only now on computer and not with pencil and inks anymore is the process any faster now that you have eliminated scanning in the work and cleaning it up or does the time go on other things.

  3. Brendan. Only on computer. I think I've answered your question fairly thoroughly, several times. Buy THE ART OF BRIAN BOLLAND book. It's in there - and more recently on my website here:

  4. So did you start submitting as many ridiculous over-the-top cover ideas as you could, just to see if Julie would take them?

  5. This is cool.

    I Don't remember ever seeing this one before.
    Do you have any Wonder woman / Animal Man prelims you could post up?

    Brian: Do you keep a record of all the convention sketches/drawings you do - if so you could post those here.

    Brendan - Get the Art of Bolland book - Seriously - if you like Brians work this is THE book to get - its a huge,hardback and printed on high quality paper and all the images are large - Theres also a Spanish edition of a magazine called Dolmen which also features a lot of prelim sketches for anyone interested in Brians work.

  6. I know a lot of artists take photos or get scans of convention sketches so I'm a little surprised you've not done this.
    After reading your Art of book and from old interviews etc I know how meticulous you've been in the past with keeping records of your work.
    Even down to the really cool pics of yourself in photo booths taken year after year.Things like that are a wonderful keepsake.

    Thanx for the Wonder woman prelim anyway. =)

  8. Well, if I'm drawing at a convention I don't have a scanner with me. On the rare occasion when I do a commissioned drawing I will, of course, scan it for the record. Through the 1980s-90s I sold many cover roughs and that was before I had a scanner or a computer so I've lost track of them.
