When it was first announced that I'd be working on the Legion I got a ton of email regarding the sale of certain character studies. My art dealer and I both agreed that the most fair way to sell the piece is to auction it off. That being said here's the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140173490009 . Happy bidding :)

As many of you know I've participated in numerous art battles over at http://gelatometti2.blogspot.com/ and so far I've been lucky enough to have a record of 3 and 0, but I think thats about to change. Not to sound down on myself but I'm going up against the grand daddy of them all Mr. Jim Lee. I kinda feel like a the student going up against the master, as daunting as it is I'm looking forward to it! The cover I've posted here was the first comic I ever bought for myself as a kid, and to say this book was a turning point of my youth is an understatment. When I saw the art in that book I got this overwhelming feeling that this is what I wanted to do when I "grew up". I always had been a reader of comics when I was younger but it was Jim's art that opened my eyes into this artistic endeavour. His art just poped out at me, it demanded attention. So join me next week when it all goes down! You can hop on over to http://gelatometti2.blogspot.com/ and post your suggestions for the subject matter and to vote for your favourite piece. Be there or be square!

Since the colored image has been released online for January's solicitation I thought I'd post the orginal pencils on here. The colored image that was released is actually not the final version, Brian tweaked a few things such as the color of the aliens among other things. I'll try to get the new version and post it up her if and when I can. Also right now I'll be posting simultaneously on http://www.francismanapul.com/ as well as http://www.manapul.blogspot.com/. We're still trying to work out a few kinks on my main site, and when thats all done I'll probably start posting exclusively on that site. Of course my blog site will still be up with all the old images, but I figured I might as well try and make my actual site relevant again, and the fact that it's just much prettier to look at. :)
