As is widely known, Tim Sale is the “ghost artist” for the painter character on HEROES, and over at Newsarama Zack Smith finds out everything you would want to know about the gig:
Newsarama: Starting with your Heroes work, how many pieces have you done so far?
Tim Sale: I’ve done maybe 20 paintings for the show and 30 comic book panels, not counting the comic that was given away as a promotion in San Diego. I should say right away, that the “paintings” are not actually paintings, they are wash drawings on comic book paper, about 11″x17″, that are then colored by the amazing Dave Stewart on a computer, and then blown up and transferred to canvas — except for the canvas part, just like Catwoman: When In Rome was produced.
Among the tidbits, former DC editor Chuck Kim is also working on the show.
