AquaSketch by Joe Quinones - 2009

This awesome sketch of Aquaman is by Joe Quinones, who I met at the 2009 Big Apple Con!

I wasn't that familiar with Joe's work until I saw it in Wednesday Comics, where Joe drew the Green Lantern strip. I thought it was beautiful stuff, modern but retro (my favorite combo!), and when I saw him on the guest list of the con he was one of the people I planned to see.

I had to leave before he finished the piece, but Joe readily agreed to send it to me. As much as I don't like leaving before I've picked up all the sketches I arranged for, having this arrive in the mail a few days later makes it feel like the con has gone on a few extra days...

Nice piece! I'll have to remember to keep an eye out for this guy at next year's conventions.

Love it! Looks like Arthur is thinking "Black Lanterns? Sheesh...."
