I did a variant cover for Ultimate Spider-man #1 and Comics Alliance did a cool little write-up about it: http://comicsalliance.com/fiona-staples-miles-morales-ultimate-spider-man-variant-cover-1/
It’s actually not my first Marvel work- I did a Spider-Woman short for Astonishing Tales and a Wolverine variant in like 2009. Life before Saga, haha.
A quick peak at my process for painting characters - no backgrounds because I’m lazy.
I am working on releasing a digital version of SPAM called SPAM Vol. 1.5! It will have all the images in the original book, plus 15 extra pages and at least 3 full, 1 hr -2 hr videos of my process for creating some of the images in the book!
More information soon on when that will be released.
Nothing I love more than a process video!
“ Storytelling and art can’t be separated in comics. There’s no other way to know what’s going on. If you’ve read a great story that’s not just down to the writer, the artist is equally responsible for telling that story through the visuals. It’s that simple. Art in comics doesn’t equal pretty pictures, it equals storytelling.”

This is it. The art is the story. It’s that simple.(via benrankel)
