Sketch covers: Bob’s Burgers #1
Over the summer, I discovered sketch covers… regular issues of comic books that are released with blank covers. The thought is (I’m guessing) that you’ll take the comic and get your favorite professional artist to doodle on the cover. Having said that, there’s nothing stopping us nonprofessionals from having a go.
When I saw that they had published a sketch cover edition of Bob’s Burgers #1, I jumped right on it. The cartoon is a favorite of mine and I have just the right number of family members to make this homage work… although Elliot had to be the stand-in for Tina Belcher. If you know Elliot, you’ll know he’d be just fine with this.
Normally I color these covers in, but the paper this cover is made out of doesn’t take marker very well.
If you’re interested, I have a gallery of some of the other sketch covers I’ve done over on my Tumblr. I’ve sold all of those but I should have a couple new ones up for sale pretty soon.
