The coolest gig

I don't usually share my work here, but for this one, I am making an exception because I am geeking out a little( a lot)about it. A few months ago, I was approached by Marvel comics to do a cover for their Wolverine Variant covers. I guess what they do is they approach different artist who not from Marvel and ask them to do their take on a character. They gave me the choice between Iron Man and Wolverine, and, of course, I chose Logan. I grew up reading Marvel comics and even wanted to be a Marvel artist at one point. So, when I received the offer, I felt like a kid at Christmas. I also was pretty scared...more than for other jobs since I know I don't necessarily draw the "Marvel" way..but, boy ho boy..was that a fun gig. Here is the cover.it'll be out later this year, but since it was already posted online here http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/JoshWildingNewsAndReviews/news/?a=75738 I figured it would be ok to share it with you as well. That's all. CHeers, and, thank you George, at Marvel for making one of my childhood dreams come true.
