Teddy and the Yeti by Jeff Lafferty
Feast your eyes on the opening salvo of what is certain to become a great piece of Teddy and the Yeti art. Jeff Lafferty, a friend and a great artist, is putting together this double sketch card of our favorite robot-snowman combo. The plan is to have it out for Comic-Con in July. Exactly how I'm going to use it is something I'm still considering.
I know I say this every time I mention the guy, but Jeff once drew Doom 2099 for Marvel. I've always been a big fan of the 2099 line, so this project becomes even more exciting to me. Jeff, I know you'll eventually read this, so let me toss this out there for all to see: if I ever meet you in person, I am going to force you to draw the Thing 2099 for me. Under threat of violence if need be!!
Nothing like open threats over the Internet. Oh well.
There's a link to Jeff's website in the "links" section of this page, but if you haven't been there yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. Jeff does a lot of great work and posts updates on his various project regularly. Click the following link to get to his site: http://jefflaffertyillustration.blogspot.com/, and while you're at it, check out his store where you'll find lots of pop culture art prints.
I'm excited to see this coming along. Thanks, Jeff!
