Bust 3: A Sackcloth Smile

Bust 3: A Sackcloth Smile. Card Shark Comics.

http://tomtwomeyseries.org/event/everything-you-always-wanted-to-know-about-north-korea-but-were-afraid-to-ask/ Cover illustration for the third instalment in the critically-acclaimed indy comic book series Bust, from Card Shark Comics.

Much like the previous two instalments, Bust 3 mainly takes strong influence from the gritty post-apocalyptic action movies of the 80s. This illustration would reflect that influence while also, the same time, giving some sense of escalation in tension since the preceding issues.

After a number of preliminary sketches, I digitally painted this cover art in Adobe Photoshop. So, for this one, I tried to go for some combination of realism and the typical comic book style. The comic cover artwork of Marko Djurdjevic was a major inspiration here.

Initially Bust 3: A Sackcloth Smile was launched via crowd-funding after a successful Kickstarter in mid-2016, and will soon be available in comic stores and from the Card Shark Comics website – cardsharkcomics.com

Card Shark Comics’ Bust 3 is developed and penned by Scottish writer and journalist Dave Cook, and interior artwork is drawn by comic book artist Chris O’Toole. Published by Card Shark Comics.
