Google And Me; Best Buds.

   At some point during the day, every day, I'm Googling something. It pays to spend a little extra time referencing characters, getting those certain outfits, locations, or Hero-mobiles correct and looking right. During a job like the one I'm doing now (X-men Archives Card Set) where your drawing up to 50 different characters each in many different costumes, I could be on Google all day long. Add that to a big box of X-men comics for character situations and storylines and it's more than enough to knock out some interesting and accurate sketches.
   I'll admit, sometimes I do get sidetracked during a search and wind up reading about what Charlie Browns dad did for a living or get sucked into watching a new movie preview. (Mutant Chronicles looks pretty good, btw) Today, for instance, I ended up reading about Captain America

Movie rumors on someones blog and I'm staring at a pic of Cap that looks really familiar. "Hey I drew that".  It was from a card I did for the Marvel Overpower card game way back in 96 or 97. I found it again in a few more places usually in conjunction with those Cap Movie references.  I've only seen it on the card until now but this is directly from the color file and I would love to find the source to get a good copy. I don't know who the colorist was but they did a great job.  Makes me want to track down other colorists on those sets and see if I can get some color files. 
  Anyway, I fingered through the ol' filing cabinet and pulled the original. I've put up a scan to show the before and after. 

Google, where have you been all my life?
