I’m Getting Better At What I Do
This is a card I did for “Golden-Age” Wolverine. Travis Charest is an all-time favorite artist of mine, so I wasted a lot of time fawning over his definitive version of Mr. Howlett.
One peculiarity I’ve noticed with Wolverine after producing two cards of him is that he only comes in three distinct ages–a young boy from his Origins storyline; his popular shopworn, thirty-something, seen-it-all-before persona; and an old man from, most notably, the superb Old Man Logan storyline. Why? Wolverine is a long-lived character. It’s hard to believe he matured into equal parts Continental Op and Terminator T-800 upon exiting puberty. So, my Golden-Age Wolverine I attempted a younger look of a twenty-something with a fresher face and a little narrower frame typical of younger men.
He not quit the best at what he does, and it’s not quit as bad as you might think. But give it time.
