Meanwhile…

Meanwhile…

Outside of my normal style, this painting was created to celebrate the birthday of my close friend Chris McInnis, curator of Über Cool Stuff, a Geek Boutique located in London, Ontario. Considering what a colossal comic geek Chris is, I wanted to create something special to mark his birthday, and as we’re both fans of Jim Kirby’s classic character Galactus, it was a foregone conclusion that he’d be the inspiration.

The illustration  is heavily influenced by Jim Lee’s interpretation of the character, and depicts a sullen Galactus— Devourer of Worlds— peering over the rim of a new world, contemplating what is about to happen.

Happy birthday Chris!
