I’ve had to keep quiet about this for quite some time, but I’ve finally been given the go ahead to share the news. A few months ago, I received a call from Shelly Bond, Editor at Vertigo Comics, and Bill Willingham. Along with asking me to take part in the Fairest In All The Land OGN, they offered me the job of Cover artist for the comic series Fables.
I’m humbled and honoured to be asked to take on such a prestigious role, for such a beloved series. It has been a surreal experience.
There are some people in particular that I would like to offer my gratitude to. Firstly, Bill and Shelly for even considering me, and trusting me to help continue this tale, along with the entire Fables Family. Dani Vulnavia and Stephanie Cooke. Supporters, collaborators, and above all friends. Not possible with them. And João Ruas for offering such kind words of encouragement, I hope I’m able to faithfully continue the masterful work you’ve done.
As many of you have read in the past few weeks, it was announced that the series is coming to a close at issue 150. I hope that I’m able to offer the same charm and grandeur to the covers that the series has become famous for as we bring this story to it’s conclusion.
My first cover for the series is for Issue 139. Please follow the link below to read the full details on the Vertigo site.
