Redesigning Captain America
Marvel's most prolific artist discusses his work on Steve Rogers as well as designing one killer Avengers spread
Even if you don't know Marko Djurdjevic, you know his work. Easily one of the dominant artistic forces at Marvel this past decade, Djurdjevic's painted work graces at least a dozen comic book covers every month. Add in character designs and the occasional interior art project and you have one busy guy.
A few weeks back Marvel unveiled two significant works by Djurdjevic. The first was a new look for Steve Rogers. The second was a magnificent 6-cover Avengers franchise spread. You've seen the art, but how did Djurdjevic go about crafting these powerful pieces? We chatted with him to find out.
It turns out Djurdjevic is even busier than he seems. He's in the process of putting together a series of seminars in Berlin, Germany, called the "Made Symposium." Professionals from the worlds of comic book and graphical design are gathering from June 17 to June 20, 2010 to teach aspiring artists about their craft and review portfolios. Seating is extremely limited, with less than 50 seats out of 200 still available. You can find plenty more information by heading to Djurdjevic's site: sixmorevodka.com/made. The artist is already considering bringing his classes to other parts of the globe, including the United States, in the future.
