Sandman: Kelley Jones – John Beatty

Another commission piece by Kelley Jones and myself!

This time, a character that Kelley knows well, but this is my first time inking him over Kelley. I’m sure I did a few small Sandman pieces in the past … quick head sketches, but this is the first full sized piece, and over someone who is connected with the character like Kel is!

Enjoy!

I think this might make a nice “black & white” print!

As always, inking Kelley is a lot of fun … lot’s of textures and other things that bring out the best in an inker! I’m truly blessed to be able to have inked him in the past and to continue to get these commissions now!

Now … onto the 411 of where, what and when!
