Klein, Rude team up to offer 'Hope'

Designer and letterer Todd Klein continues his artistic trek through the alphabet -- skipping "G," but he says he'll get back to it -- with another awesome art print, this time teaming up with Nexus creator Steve Rude to offer one titled "Hope."

"I’ve been a fan of Steve Rude’s work since discovering NEXUS in the early 1980s, and I’ve worked with Steve as a letterer several times, most recently on his self-published issues of NEXUS, which was challenging but also a thrill to do," Klein said in a post that details the creation of the print (you can find part 2 of the process here). "Steve’s work has always seemed to me to have a classical feel in the figure work, so I thought he might enjoy depicting Pandora and Hope. I asked Steve, above, when we met in San Diego, and though he was hesitant at first, he was intrigued by the subject, and finally agreed to do a print with me."

Rude joins an impressive list of creators who have teamed with Klein to create prints -- Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Alex Ross, J.H. Williams III, Mark Buckingham and Bill Willingham. All the prints, including the new one, can be purchased on his site.
