Kismet, co-incidence, or cosmic fate, I can't even begin to guess how, out of the hundreds of cards Ryan Dunlavey did, that the one with The Beast wound up in my fuzzy little hooves. Short of a lucky fairy godfather at DCBS looking over me and intentionally putting this one aside for me, I'd say it's just one of those wonderful serendipitous events that as I'm doing 365 Days of Hank McCoy, this happens.
Hank looks like he's read something a little worrisome there. Maybe he's just had his basic ideas challenged by a particularly brain-blasting section of one of his favorite books...but, y'know, I think maybe he may have just got to the part of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire where Voldemort blasts Cedric. Hank may be a big brain and all, but he's sensitive like that.
Hey, go on over to Ryan Dunlavey's blog and check out other sketch cards he did for this promotion...and there's more here...and wow, look, there's even more here! (Look careful and you'll spot mine!)
There's a heckuva lotta wonderful sketches in there. And no, you can't buy 'em...they've all gone to lucky people and little stuffed animals like me! But...and this is the important part...you can commission Ryan to do a sketch card or other artwork right here! Go ahead, what are you waitin' for?
Thanks, Mister Dunlavey, for a very cool ninety-ninth Beast of the year!
