A while back I posted about the DC Fifty-TOO blog. It was set up to feature different artists interpretation of what their n#1 of a DC Comic title would look like (In conjunction of their big relaunch). The blog got some great buzz and amazing talent involved (of which myself and Jamie Fay were honored to be involved with). Well, now the blog is featuring the same sort of thing, only now with Marvel characters in a "What If..." theme. I didn't have time to do something for the project this time, but NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay, did.
Anyone who knows Jamie or meets him at conventions, knows his appreciation for X-Men and more specifically, the female characters of the books. So, when given the chance, Jamie jumped at doing his version of a "What If..." cover. He took the most recent storyline in the X-Men titles, the "Schizm" saga (which ultimated divided the X-characters between taking sides with Wolverine or Cyclops) and added his own twist to it by dividing the team into male and female characters. Since Jamie is a master at drawing the female form, it was a dream project for him. Take a look at Jamie's entry into the Marvel "What If..." project at www.dcfifty-too.blogspot.com and read about Jamie's vision for the team there.
In the past, I predicted big things in the future for SENTINELS artist, Luciano Vecchio. And now he's drawing Ben 10 for DC Comics and something else I'm not at liberty to talk about. But he's hitting the big time and I'm so happy and proud for him!!! Well, the same goes for NEVERMINDS artist, Jamie Fay. Mark my words, one day soon I'll be posting great news about him and hopefully reporting that he's drawing one of the X-books. Marvel needs to get him on a book asap!!
