X-Men Origins: Jean Grey Cover by mikemayhew X-Men Origins: Jean Grey Cover by mikemayhew
11X17 in Watercolor. The cover to the 30 page one-shot X-Men Origins: Jean Grey, published August 2008. All the interior art is painted in watercolor by me.

Hello ! I am absolutely impressed by this piece. When I bought the comic book I fell in love with your style, especially the colors you use which are really gorgeous. I think it's amazing to use watercolor while most comic books are digitally painted, it makes your art pop out and stand out from the others. I also know that you used Ashley Benson as a reference for Jean, I think it was a great choice. Anyway, thank you for sharing, your work is very inspiring :)

Great piece, I tried to do watercolor pictures of superheroes but it didn't come out as well. Did you use Ashley Benson as a reference model for the bigger Jean because she looks just like her.

yes.  I cast Ashley in the role through a modeling agency at the time.  I also cast a younger model named Sasha Pitterese, and coincidentally both ended up on PRETTY LITTLE LIARS.
