Ask Morgana 158: John Tyler Christopher
“John Tyler Christopher is a Harvey Award nominated illustrator from Lafayette, In. His work has appeared on the covers of MARVEL’s Avengers Solo: Hawkeye, Star Wars, Figment, New Mutants, Annihilators: Earthfall, Dark Avengers, Spider-man, Venom; and the 50th Anniversary Spider-man Encyclopedia. Other covers appear on Top Cow’s Witchblade and Artifacts as well as DC’s Voodoo. It can also be found in both table-top and video games, as well as film and television. He enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and waxing intellectually about the shear awesomeness of the Gorn.”
And now you know as much as I do. I thought I would post art today that did not rely on nudity, except where it is coyly covered or suggested. What I like about Christopher’s work is his use of negative space. What is the object and what is the background? I love his nod to Alphonse Mucha in ‘Poison Ivy’ below.
