DescriptionJohn Totleben Swamp Thing V2#64 Cover Study Painting and Rough Concept Preliminary Original Art Group of 2 (DC, 1987). Totleben's cover studies are as lovely and complete as some artists' finished paintings! Using warm and rich Earth-tones, the dark silhouettes of the main figures draw you into the swamp, which teams with life and energy. Watercolor over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". It is signed "John" on the side note to editor Karen Berger. The pure graphite rough on paper is signed "STTotleben" just under the 10" x 15" image area. The color study shows he decided to pull back from the figures of Swamp Thing and Abigail Cable to reveal more of the swamp. This is from one of the pre-Vertigo issues of the title. The roughs have a bit of wrinkling in the top left margin; otherwise, they are in Excellent condition.
