X-Men 7 cover by TimTownsend X-Men 7 cover by TimTownsend
Cover to X-Men # 7 by Chris Bachalo and myself. Mickey had to be removed for some strange reason. I mean, Disney does own Marvel after all. This is sort of a parody of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album cover. Theres a cameo by me, my wife, Chris Bachalo, and his wife.

Was the halo around Mickey done because he was an animated character ? or did you want to make hin stand out? just wondering.

Just a way to pop him a little from the background chaos. There are halos around some of the other figures as well.

Yeah I noticed. Was that implied in the pencils or was that a judgement call by you to have some character pop out?

Too bad you guys couldn't use Mickey, he turned out cute [I suppose his comic rights are off at Boom for the time being]. This'ld make a great poster

Oh Mickey... How long will the man keep you down? And I was so looking forward to a a Disney infested Marvel experience. You have to admit that a Deadpool / Goofey team up would have been the hotness.

They probably removed Mickey for his own protection. I read an article years back that there was a fatwa out on him.

I'm always impressed by how crisp your inks look on the computer (I am 95% sure I've heard you mention you're a brush-inker for the most part). How large to you work to fit in this amount of detail? It's absolutely stunning!

Thanks! I am primarily a brush inker. Comic art is typically done on standard 11 x 17 art board.
