Last year, I was working in an animation studio called Image Entertainment (not to be confused with the comic book company) as a character and prop artist, basically assisting the main designer on her art for the Walter and Tandoori show.
This is what it looks like on YouTube.
Basically, I was doing most of my 5 days week work in 3 or 4 days. That left me with a lot of time to doodle and listen to the radio. That was soon to change, because my wife would go back to work and we would have to share our Baby duties. The opposite happened : I had to take time on the week end to finish the week's work.

By that time, I also had heard that the cover of issue #163 was to have a variant cover by the late Eduarto Barreto ! I'm a big fan of his work. This south american artist chanelled some energy from old classic artists like Alex Raymond and Harold Foster. Fluid linework, solid drawing, nice black and white...I recall especially the Martian Manhunter: American Secrets (1992) mini-serie.
