Dan DeCarlo's Jetta

Hot of the presses: Dan DeCarlo's Jetta!
For the first time all three Jetta comic books from the 50's are collected in one large full-color hardback volume! You know you want it! ;)

Editor Craig Yoe asked me if I wanted to do a pin-up for the book.
And how could I say no to that?

Here's my first concept rough:

And then a more clean pencil sketch:

Followed by the final inked version:

The drawing was then colored by my girlfriend, Hedvig for inclusion in the book.

Our pin-up is not the only one in the book. No, 37 (!) artists joined the project and here's a list of them all! I bet I'm not the only one posting Jetta artwork today, so follow the links and explore the blogs and websites to get a fix of some great artwork. Enjoy!
