mclegion!

so, after all these months, another of the big projects i did for dc creative services is finally out... happy meal stuff!

yup, if you head over to your local mcdonald's and get a boy's happy meal (since girls clearly don't like comic book stuff... ) you'll get one of 8 legion pvc figures (no girls, remember... 'cause boys probably think saturn girl's yucky) - packed in a wrap-around clamshell case with a trading card... with art by yours truly.

not much more to say except it was a fun gig (although, ironically, i ended up doing most of the job with supersize me running repeatedly on msnbc)... and its probably gonna be the most exposure my work's ever gotten (even if i didn't sign'm)...

here's the art for the 2 i managed to get the other day ...






and the baltimore show is creeping up pretty quickly, eh? should have the new 'haps convention special done soon... as well as my new sketchbookS! (that's right, BOOKS... not one, but TWO more canson volumes are gonna debut in baltimore... and quite possibly a new b/w volume)...






i'm sure there's more (like the sox, tv, etc) but i've got stuff to do...

well, back to work!

We just have the Superman one so far. The packaging is far superior to the actual toy...

Two new canson books. Look great.

I know you were being sarcastic, but my daughter got the Timberwolf one on Saturday. My 3 1/2 year old daughter loves the Legion of Super Heroes (or Superman Heroes as she calls them).

My wife even made the comment about how nice the packaging was without any prompting from me.

Too bad the toys aren't as good looking as the art. How long ago did you do these?

Brian said...

I know what I'm having for lunch the next few days.

Congrats they look great.

Stuff looks great! I'll have to check out McD's. Two new Canson sketchbooks eh? Very nice!

Any chance the Gwen Stacy I talked to you about last Baltimore will be ready for this one?

Bill Nolan said...

Great, now we have 4 Supermen... that's all they have at the one I've been to so far...

So I can blame the 10 lbs I put on this week all for the sake of art? I like that.

Sorry to miss the Baltimore, but if you print out some more sketchbooks for Heroes next year I'll probably pick 'em up.

We added Mano and Lightning Lad to our collection today. Good job sneaking tiny pix of Saturn Girl and Phantom Girl into the Mano box art, Craig. That excited by kids more than the Mano figure itself. God forbid boys notice there are icky girls in the Legion... :P

Cool artwork! I ate the toy since the Mickey D's would play havok with my cholesterol.

Picked up Brainiac5 and Tharok, I'll echo what everyone else is saying - the packaging four outstrips the toys in niftiness
