Artist David Day has done it all – pencilling, inking, colouring, lettering and painting for comic books, fine art pieces, fantasy & science fiction book covers, collectible card games, trading cards, gaming modules, and children’s books. Recently Day has been working for Marvel Digital Comics, Topps trading cards and the Arthur Child Museum & Historical Society in Gananocque, Ontario. David is the brother of comic book artists Dan and (the late) Gene Day, for whom the Gene Day Award for Canadian Self-Publishing is named.
The piece shown above is one of over 40 pieces of original artwork featuring Wolverine donated to the Joe Shuster Awards for the Visions of an Icon Art Show and Sale by Canadian artists. The pieces were exhibited twice in 2009 – at the Joe Shuster Awards Ceremony in September and at the Speakeasy Comic Art Show in November. The original art pieces will be auctioned off on eBay in March 2010. Watch for announcements on this site!
Every day we will try to post an original piece and some information on the artist(s) that donated the work.
