Craig Hamilton Week, Part 6: Aquaman Annual #1

sgCraig's last(to date) official Aquaman piece was this grabber of a cover, for the then-Aquaman-series first Annual.

Unfortunately, Craig didn't do any of the art for the interior stories, so this cover--representing each of the stories therein--had to suffice.
I'm not going to go into detail about the book itself, since this week is all about Craig!

As you can see, Craig's style was evolving--there's more modeling and heavier blacks than the work he did in the mini-series, and now you can see from examples like yesterday's sketch that the heavy blacks have receeded but the modeling remains, giving his work a more illustrative, classical-type style that completely makes sense, given Craig's admitted artistic influences.
