Here are some more images of the “Blank Variant” covers created by, TMNT co-creator, Kevin Eastman.
On the left, we have the “concept doodle”, and on the right, we have the finished product.
Thanks again to Kevin for taking time from his busy schedule to make these happen. But Kevin wasn’t the only friend of Panel to Panel to complete a blank variant cover. Stay tuned for more great, one-of-a-kind interpretations of Marvel characters done to help support Panel to Panel.
I’d like to send a HUGE thanks out to Kevin Eastman! Kevin was kind enough to create five illustrations on some “blank variant” covers from Marvel Comics, and allow me to auction them off in hopes of raising some cash to help cut a few productions costs for the book. Not only did Kevin complete these amazing covers, but he also included his “concept doodles” which he’d sketched out on some backing boards. These books, minus one, have all found happy homes via eBay, and I can not thank Kevin enough.
It’s a real treat for me to have had Kevin be involved, not only because I’m a fan of his work, but also because in a lot of ways he was one of the original inspirations for this book. Did you know that the Panel to Panel book, in it’s original incarnation, was to include an all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story illustrated by Kevin? It’s true! But circumstances beyond our control had put a stop to that concept moving forward. A story for another post, perhaps
For now, please enjoy these images of Kevin’s “concept doodles” and completed covers. I plan on posting more in the near future…
