Guillem March on Gotham City Sirens

DC's The Source this week published a very interesting short interview with artist Guillem March in which he gives an insight into his process when producing the cover for Gotham City Sirens #8.

The issue focuses on Poison Ivy and therefore, not unreasonably, she is the focus of the cover. March talks about the process of creating a number of concept layouts, submitting them for consideration and the technique he used to produce what would turn out to be a quite simply stunning image.

Speaking as someone who doesn't draw or paint I'm aware that I'm sometimes guilty of not appreciating the thought that goes into producing artwork - who'd have thought that using the back of the regular paper stock would have been a consideration? - and I have to say this article was quite an eye-opener for me.
