Hey there all you incredible creators! So as some of you may know, I was recently contacted by DC comics, and now Im finally one of their cover artists =). Ive officially completed my very first DC cover for Power Girl a lil while ago, which is currently an inventory cover - kept until the perfect spot arrives. At the moment I can't give you any info about its usage, although there is talk about it being possibly used on a trade paperback collection of Power Girl stories. A soon as they let me know exactly what's happening with it, I'll fill you guys in!



Now this was pleasant surprise. I was contacted by ImagineFX to be their "Artist in Residence" for their upcoming issue 58 - The Manga issue! This will be the first time my base of operations will be revealed to the public. This issue will be going on sale in the UK 1 June and around a month later in the US.



Now for those of you looking for some advanced inspiration about reality, which includes all areas of how to better approach everything for more positive results, read what I have to share with all of you in my deviations:

• Your Key To Infinity - WarrenLouw.deviantart.com/art/…
• Dream Big - WarrenLouw.deviantart.com/art/…



For those of you interested at all in my art philosophies and approaches to art in further detail, check out the insightful interview Hello-SouthAfrica did with me in late March 2009 - news.deviantart.com/article/75…

just read your journal entry very late about your new job at DC, and to top it off, making the cover for my favorite superhero, Power Girl :D. Btw Warren, my Drawing class teacher was showing your work from an Imagine FX issue as a sample as one way to approach drawing women, I didn't know my teacher knew of your work lol.

congrats, I'm happy :iconartgerm: and you are "there"..., the funny thing is( not disrespecting any other just as great artists),i've always had my visioned team of devart people who i'm always like...."they NEED to be at MARVEL or DC ect ect", and....taken awhile but, it is happening, boarders and continents are not stopping people and compromises being made.
DC is at its artistic greatness.

dude, on the real, BIRDS OF PREY , powergirl and wonderwoman covers, get it done, its got to happen lol

Congratulations! It is so well deserved.

You bring a tremendous amount of positive energy to the art community. It's always a joy to study your art, and your workshops/tutorials in ImagineFX and dA have been extremely helpful, AND the philosophies you've shared have been very uplifting and inspirational.

Thank you for all that you've given. I think I speak for all of us when I say I'm glad to see it being given back to you in this way.

Can't wait for IFX issue 58 to arrive in the mail :D

Oh and BTW ImagineFX recently did a studio profile interview with the UDON crew. I wonder if it'll be in the same "manga" issue? They did ask some manga questions.

Like so many have said, congrats, Warren! Will definitely keep an eye out for your work both at DC and ImagineFX.

...And thanks for posting "Dream Big" and "Your Key to Infinity". I'm sort of going through a tough time right now, but reading these have been an eye-opener and have been a big help.

Best wishes for continued success--you've earned it!

Haha! Thanks man =) well for the record, I went through a couple years of working for the smaller folk, but then had enough and wanted bigger stuff. You gotta intend the best for yourself and along the way hope to inspire others to do the same, by setting the example. This is something we can all make a reality of in our own ways ;)
