Thief of Thieves #3
“The cover for Issue 3 was very special and a really cool example of colorist Felix Serrano and I being on the same “creative” page. To introduce the character of FBI Agent Elisabeth Cohen, our lead character’s chief nemesis, I came up with a design that was slightly abstract and would encapsulate their ‘cat and mouse’-themed relationship.”
“The cover would show miniature Conrads running around and taunting Elisabeth. When Felix turned in the colors and I saw that he used a pop, street art type of style, I was blown away. It was totally what I had in mind. We’re both big fans of the artist Banksy but I never suggested that Felix apply this approach to the cover. It was a really odd and great example of both of us working in tandem.”
Thief of Thieves #4
“The cover design approach to Issue 4 was the introduction to Conrad’s wayward son Augustus.”
“I tried to visualize the concept of Augustus trying to follow in Conrad’s footsteps as a master thief, but unfortunately, he is clearly not his father. I thought it would be interesting to simply show that Augustus not a good thief which is evidenced by him being caught by the cops.”
“I designed the cover image to show the scene from behind Augustus, which is a contrast to the previous covers. This cover is a really great example of my going more for atmosphere than detail. The contour drawing gave colorist Felix Serrano a lot of room to add depth and atmosphere. I think he did a great job.”
