Tom Bunk mailed me some more of his sketches recently so I thought I'd share some of them.
In January of 2011, Mad magazine released a special Spy VS Spy issue that included 5 mini-posters by artists Jim Lee, Peter Bagge, Evan Dorkin, Bob Staake, and Tom Bunk.
Tom submitted an amazing 2 page poster with dozens of black and white spies having it out.
Tom sent me 4 sketches he did for this poster. 3 of them are poster size and not too easy to scan but I did my best. It's really neat to see the different gags and ideas Tom went through before completing one of his best illustrations ever!
The 2 above have a lot of pencil work that for some reason didn't show up in the scans? Here are some close-up photos of the last sketch which was too large to scan.
I love how Tom inserted himself as a spy in the bottom left corner.
He also sent me a small sketch that looked really familiar. It took me a bit to remember where I'd seen it but I finally figured it out.
It's for the Wacky Packages series 8 card #20 (Tutino's Pizza Wraps)
Here's Mark Parisi's original concept sketch for this.
Tom also mailed me a ton of other sketches for a few other things that I haven't seen published anywhere yet so I'll most likely post those later. Thanks again Tom.
