What crazy dream is this that I get to throw my two cents in the new Archie reboot? A really good one, that's for sure.
Here were some initial concepts I had done for Archie Comics back in May 2015.
For Veronica's wardrobe I looked at a lot of J. Crew, (staying away from Madewell, since that felt too casual for her) and Marc Jacobs.
Growing up I got the Betty/Veronica jokes a lot (my grandma's name is Betty and she is blonde and super nice) and I was brunette, feisty and opinionated. So I was under the impression that Veronica was "the mean one".
But I have to tell you, Mark Waid writes women really, really well and it fills me with an almost selfish joy that finally - the classic snooty rich-girl Veronica gets some deeper layers.
Starting to draw issue 5 this week while wrapping inks on Howard the Duck #2. So exciting!!
More to come later!
