I'm thrilled to find out that The Middle Age has been named a Reuben Award finalist by the National Cartoonists Society.
I have to admit I hadn’t seen a single episode of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers before I took on this project. My friends who are fans of the show said the cover must focus on the Green Ranger and his Dragonzord. Thanks to Netflix, I was able to binge a few episodes and see why the Green Ranger is so popular.
I was immediately struck by the dagger/flute weapon of his and knew I wanted to feature that on the cover.
I sketched a quick thumbnail on my ipad and submitted it for approval.
Once approved, I worked up a black-and-white version in Manga Studio and Photoshop. Color work was done in Photoshop.
