BANNER by TimTownsend BANNER by TimTownsend
Nothing like a little shameless self-promotion, right? For the last few years, each time I attend a convention, I inevitably find myself sitting next to people with these gigantic signature banners. At first I thought they were a little pretentious but soon realized that they were actually really smart business, very practical, and professional. So, at the last show I did, as I sat there red faced behind a hand-lettered 8.5 x 11 sign with my name on it, I resolved to get with the program. The giant banner just arrived today and its damn cool looking if I do say so myself.

Many thanks to my good friend, talented designer Brent Ashe :iconweapon6: , for doing the grunt work on this. Any pro's out there who are thinking about doing something like this, drop Brent a line. You wont be sorry!

That is one of the best spider-mans i've seen in a long time
and i like the detail in iron man even though its a cartoon-ish feel


you should design characters for cartoons or something
if you did i would definitely watch it

Thats the style, bro. Its cartoony, interpretive. There is no right an wrong. Its like watching Scooby Doo and critiquing it on the basis that he doesnt look like a real dog.

You mean he printed these himself instead of at a company like Fastsigns, etc? I guess I'll ask him directly.
