Graphic Novelists - Day 54

Mike Allred was going to be in town, so Chris and I knew we had to catch up with him, which we did at the Wizard World Big Apple Comic Con a few weeks back.
Mike work, evident in his creations Madman and Red Rocket 7, shows a pop art sensibility. Artist like Lichtenstein appropriated from comics during the 50's and 60's, and to me, Mike Allred has brought the look full circle.
My concept for the photo was to put the artist in his creation, to merge them, creating a new pop art piece.
