I’ve been rather excited to publish this page since it was written a couple of weeks ago.
Not only do I enjoy ragging on Dynamite’s cash grabs and over-saturation of certain titles, but I also got the opportunity to work with a good buddy of mine, whose work I’ve admired for a long time, and whose charm and good looks I’ve admired for even longer.
If you are not familiar with the artist who goes by Hawk, allow me:
Hawk, more formally known as Mohammad F. Haque (read: it’s on his business card), leads a double life: innovative artist/illustrator by day, lightning-fingered techie by night. He currently juggles several projects and job titles, including concept designer/illustrator for Quantum Mechanix based in Los Angeles, graphic artist/developer for Protein Media Inc. based in Washington DC and co-creator/artist of the webcomic “Applegeeks”. At Quantum Mechanix, he plays with dolls…err, designs officially licensed maquettes for Serenity/”Firefly”, “Dr. Who” and Star Trek. When Hawk isn’t designing or drawing, he captures the world through the lens of his Nikon D90 or experiments with new techniques and art forms in his batcave (read: basement). He hails from the Maryland/DC area and scored a degree in Graphic Design and Art from the University of Maryland. For more on Hawk, check out his website at http://www.hawkstudios.net/ or follow him on Twitter @hawkster.
And yes, I fully plan on suckering him into doing another Gutters page. And soon.
