The sketch blog of Richard Case
Hey I'm interested in the influences for your original Doom Patrol covers. Some of my questions are really random -- such as Issue #20. What's the influence behind the portrait of that guy? Is that Robotman?
Hi Desmond, Had to think hard about that one, as that goes back some 25 years or so... My best recollection was that I was just playing up the collage elements so decided to work in a style that reminded me of the geometric shapes of the collage/dada artist Kurt Schwitters, crossed with a pose based on an Egon Schiele drawing. No idea what likeness I was really going for though. Certainly if I were to recreate it today, I'd put more significance into a detail like that.Thanks for asking!-Richard
