And a dream comes true.
Recieved this earlier today from Mr McMahon. Its based on the episode of the Cursed Earth (prog 83) thats my favourite part of that strip.

Dredd (and Spikes) versus the Legion of the Damned.




To see the pencils, and then the inked version, in scanned form, was midblowing enough, but to actually hold the art in your hands...

Its been great to see all these commissions go up on Mick's blog (and great to see some landing for folks on here, as well) - and of course there's still a few more to come.
And after those, there's another batch due at the end of the year!

Absolutely stunning... Really pleased to see how this one turned out, Iain.  Definitely the best of Mick's recent commissions.  It'll be interesting to see Mick's other commissions as they emerge - I guess a few more are expected for people here, at least.

Damn, that's good. Look at the picture of Spikes 78 (?)....what a cracking character panel.

That is perfect. I'm not kidding; if you took a rule and a set of dividers to that page you'd see that the balance of proportions are absolutely literally perfectly in harmony with each other, and the relationship between the areas of black and white leads the eye through that composition flawlessly and effortlessly. That your commission also manages to be dynamic, dramatic, and to demonstrate a great sense of humour, is what makes Mick a genius.

McMahon seems to build up an image (at least in his head) by arranging, layering and combining simple geometric shapes into something much more complex, and if you traced over that image, marking the lines of composition and the arrangement of triangles and hyperbola which all converge on the focal point of that page, the result would look a lot like the formal perfection of cubist art.

Congratulations, Jack - that's a masterpiece.

Mr Dayglo is selling off the original art for the entire and final Apocalypse War episode.

And now sold, by the looks of things...
An overseas collector, i think.

*Sigh* I didn't win the lottery so it wasn't to be.

I did scan nearly all my artwork this morning though so when I've stitched them all together I can put them up :)
