    John Buscema - Conan Layout Sketches Original Art, Group of 3 (undated). John Buscema's creative process is laid bare in these three full-sized, dynamic layout sketches for a Conan yarn. Each pencil on layout paper drawing has an image area of 10" x 15". One of the pages has a large piece out of the upper right corner; otherwise the pages are in Very Good condition. Here's another chance to learn from the Marvel master who co-wrote How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way! From the collection of Richard and Wendy Pini. Richard says: "Sometimes an artist's sketches can show much more than the finished work; they are so much looser and freer. Once John Buscema had established himself at Marvel, I can recall wishing that he would do much more than he was already doing. (The endless wishes of a fan...) As with the Neal Adams thumbnails, I learned from these how an artist thinks and works, from idea through sketch to finished page."

    More information about John Buscema, also known as Buscema, John, John Buscema.
