Wamester Commission #3 (2009)

Wamester Commission #3 - and my personal favorite!

Wamester Commission #3 - and my personal favorite!

I can’t say enough nice things about Jeff Wamester.  His work is beautiful, professional – always jaw dropping – and he’s very quick!  So, here’s an announcement/hulk collection piece.  See, there’s a story behind this piece.  First off, look at the Hulk – the figures that are in front of him.  If you can make it out – it is a woman holding a child and the Hulk is protecting them from a missile that one of the fighter jets dropped.  I mean, it may take a minute, but just look at this piece.  The jets are at the top, flying off, leaving trails of smoke behind them.  The Hulk is standing there – and if you look at his back you can tell a missile has just exploded – right at the top of his back.  Sometimes I hate scans of the work because in person you’d see the amazing detail that Jeff put into this piece!  I love art work that tells a story.  But there’s an obvious other story to tell here…

That’s right, my wife and I are having a hulkling of our very own.  Yes, it’s our first – and it may be our only because my wife is sick 24/7!  But when my wife told me there was a chance she was pregnant I immediately contacted Jeff about drawing something up for me to commemorate this moment.  I also contacted one other artist – who just told me that the commission is on it’s way.  Each piece is so different and I can’t wait to get them up in the nursery.  I don’t know what I am having yet – but I will let you know 🙂 – One more thing – one of the colorists that enjoy Wamester’s work saw this piece and asked if he could color it up.  I don’t remember the name – sorry – if Jeff reads this and wants to leave his name in the comments – please do – but it’s a really, really decent colorization:

It's called a Baby Boom!

Not sure what the woman and child are glowing – but I really like the way the backround is blurry and the light is shooting out everywhere.  There a lot of undiscovered talented guys out there – Wamester is certainly one!  I will have to get a hold of Jade Giant because I know he has 2 killer pieces that you guys would just LOVE!
