art progression on Witchfinder 1 cover

Most of you are aware that I’m co-writing the next Witchfinder mini-series with Kim Newman, and that the amazing Tyler Crook is providing the art, with colours by the multiple award-winning Dave Stewart.

I’ve now seen all the art for issues 1 and 2 and it’s terrific. I can’t wait until other people see it too.

On top of all of this we’ve been lucky to have Julian Totino Tedesco as our cover artist. I’ve seen most of the covers now and he’s doing tremendous work.

Recently on Facebook he posted the art progression of the first cover of Witchfinder: The Mysteries of Unland, and I thought other people would like to see it too. It’s the kind of thing I find fascinating. I asked Julian if it was all right to post it here and he gave his blessing.

Here was the rough he sent us as mock-up of what he wanted to do:

Then he did the pencils:

Here’s the final cover with the lettering:

It’s wonderful to work with talented people!
