From Tim Doyle- “A few months back, Bernie mentioned he’d be at the convention, and that he’d like to have a new print at the show. Going through some of his more recent work, he pulled this gem out, in black and white format, and asked if I would be interested in doing the coloring on the print. I was…very honored at the request, and also slightly terrified. How could I possibly hope to work on top of a guy like Bernie? Once I started, I was surprised at how little I actually had to do, to define form and shading- so much of it was already present in the line. That massive dark shape at the center of the image was already about as perfect as it could be, and all I had to do was just give a little bit of modelling to it, and it just came alive. Working on this was truly a rare treat.”
