7LA by mcguan
7LA

Last month on Twitter, Benito Cereno issued the challenge to assemble a seven-member, all-female Justice League. He ended up getting a lot of responses and several pretty spiffy drawings as a result, and after much delay, I present mine. I made the decision to draw them out as a team to see how they'd all look together, and yep, that's a team all right. (Also? Unfortunately and unintentionally overly caucasian and very blue-eyed brunette-y.) I've begun referring to them in my head as the Seven Lady Army (or 7LA), and have had a modified version of The White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" stuck in my head for two weeks, so I'm glad to finally move past that.

Here's the line-up:

Wonder Woman 
Big Barda
Black Canary
Zatanna
Mary Marvel
Elasti-Girl
Talia al Ghul

But before you start in with "Yeah, but how would even Talia work on this team?" or "What's with the high heels on Elasti-Girl?" head over to my Tumblr, where I explain all this and more

Editorial illustration, comic book art, graphic design, the back of a photocopied piece of paper, a bar napkin, whatever... I'm pretty much always drawing. And if I'm not, I'm thinking about what I should draw later.

Professionally I have a few editorial illustrations under my belt, and I have penciled (and on occasion inked) several comic books for companies like Moonstone Books, Markosia and Monkeybrain Comics. Including:

MOONSTONE
Lai Wan #1 - pencils
Airboy and the Air Fighters #1 & 2 - pencils and inks on the Airboy chapters

MARKOSIA
Smoke & Mirror (vol.1 no. 5) - pencils
Project Eon (issues 2 &3) - pencils

MONKEYBRAIN
BOO! (Issue 2) "The Night The Dead Rocked Texas" - Pencils, Inks, Colors

Current Residence: Illinois

Hey, look a journal! Forgot about these things.

I've been away from dA for a variety of reasons, one of which is that I was preoccupied illustrating one of the installments in Monkeybrain's new four-issue anthology series BOO! The first issue hits Comixology today, with the rest to follow over the next few Thursdays until Halloween.

My chapter is written by Ken Lowery (Co-founder of the Fake AP Stylebook) cargocollective.com/kenlowery with lettering by TheIronRachel. Our chapter, titled "The Night The Dead Rocked Texas" and two other great stories - as well as some fantastic framing sequences by Calamity Jon Morris calamityjonsave.us comes out next Thursday, Oct. 17.

You can find the whole series here - .99 an issue! Thanks in advance!

You mean like actual sequentials/paneled pages? Hmm... I'd have to figure out which ones I still like enough to show. ;)

I loved the textures you put on that piece. I had to download it to see the bigger size, so I could take it all in. Nicely done!
