Everyone Loves A Man in a Grey Tin Can
Brent Schoonover has impeccable taste. He's a self-confessed Kirby fanatic, as well as a fan of the original, classic grey-tin-can Iron Man design. And really, what's not to like about that? And what's not to like about this spectacular illustration, which really captures the energy and excitement of those early Iron Man appearances? When I saw this submission, I thought my eyeballs were gonna pop outta my head -- its that cool.
Aside from working as an illustrator, Brent has also drawn the comic Horrorwood for Ape Entertainment and also has another series coming up called Astronaut Dad. Check out his work for yourself -- its chock full of old-school charm.
