Carmine was a teacher of mine while I attended The School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. I absolutely loved his very straight forward attitude about comics and how to put one together the right way. I will always be grateful for his words and wisdom.
He is the teacher that told me I had "it" and that I should continue doing comics. "It," being that artist's eye for putting things together well, he told me.
I'd been wanting to do a piece for him since I left school and didn't feel my skills were up to par enough at the time to do a respectable piece for him. So with progression over the years came this piece. Hope he liked it.. R.I.P. Carmine Infantino (May 24, 1925 – April 4, 2013) http://fav.me/d1me2fa
