NEW : PRELIMINARY SKETCHES by Kelsey Shannon
COVERS - COVER SKETCHES by Kelsey Shannon
The first two covers above were made for BA #12. For some reason the editor asked for a late cover relacement, so the Riddler one was never published.

NEW : Kelsey Shannon's Batman Adventures cover concepts!
One cover sketch or multiple cover sketches?
Ty Templeton, cover artist on The Batman Adventures,
Batman & Robin Adventures and Gotham Adventures:
did multiple cover sketches before the editor and I chose a final design...I
or three, but
some covers I did as many as ten."
Kelsey Shannon, cover artist on Batman Adventures:
only do one design and it's the one I want. Very rarely do they ask me
time ago that
if you give an editor more than one design, they will ALWAYS choose the
one you don't like. ALWAYS! So now I only send one at a time."
John Delaney, cover artist on Advs in the DCU and
all the years I've been doing covers for DC, not once has the cover I
thought was best been picked by the editors. Many of my fellow artists
tell me I should only submit one idea so as
to guarantee it getting picked, but I always end up doing a bunch of concepts
anyway so I figure they're the one's paying for it might as well give
them lots to choose from."
