The Art Of American Virgin #7

American Virgin #7 Page 12
One of the best single pages I've ever been associated with. So, here it is in black and white and how it looks in the book with amazing colors by Brian Miller. Becky Cloonan never stops amazing me with these pencils.

Series artist Becky Cloonan is joined by inker Ryan Kelly, and it’s an excellent fit. It comes as little surprise, as each was tapped by writer Brian Wood for two acclaimed series: Cloonan on Demo on AiT/PlanetLar and Kelly on Local, now being published by Oni Press. I love the emotional energy the artists pour into each character. Adam’s confusion, depression and drive really shine through in Cloonan’s manga-inspired style. I must also make mention of Brian Miller’s colors. It’s his work that brings the rave-like atmosphere of the second half of the issue come to life. The constantly shifting Day-Glo colors in which the characters are immersed convey that loud, surreal setting perfectly.
