Jason Shawn Alexander: The painting process

Dark Horse has a great little piece/interview with Jason Shawn Alexander, the artist behind the upcoming Abe Sapien: The Drowning. In the interview, Alexander chronicles the process he undertakes to bring oil paintings to life, and the end results is awesome. Check it out for the know-how factor, and just awe at his skill. But, this oil painting has slightly more importance than just being a training in oil painting. Nope. It was created in celebration of the launch of Abe Sapien: The Drowning mini-series. A signed lithograph featuring said oil painting will be available as an incentive to Direct Market Retailers, so you can be sure to see this bad boy in a comic store near you sometime soon.
