Vintage "Spidey Art" resurfaces

Here's some pin-up artwork i did a million years ago for the old Sam Raimi Spider man feature on DVD

Forget which version of Spider man it was on, I lost the dvd years ago ... maybe someone out there remembers? 

While drawing it, I asked Sony if I could add Ditko's name on the wall, along side Stan's - and luckily they agreed.  Even though I respect Ditko's reclusive nature, in some humble way i wanted to pay him some respect for all he's done for all us fans over the years,  so much pleasure his work's brought into our lives. 

If memory serves, IDW did the Spider man dvd menus designs, and that explains how editor Chris Ryall came across it by accident while IDW was  preparing to move offices last week.  Thanks Chris, for digging it up. 

I also see it's complete with the goofy "sam kieth style duct tape" around the borders too. Weird the stuff one comes across while moving.

My thanks for everyone's patience, during this last ..  unusually long ... "hiatus".  You guys are awesome for sticking around for as long as you have, seriously!  

- Sam

Hi Sam,

Just discovered your amazing blog. I wanted to let you know that I really enjoy the Maxximized series, especially the new covers and the design of the HC volumes. I find most of the new colouring a real improvement, though I still have to get used to the night scenes drained of any bright colours (though, of course, it is more realistic this way). It's also great to see the removal of the grating Donald Duck appearances. I was also pleased to see that you moved the first page of issue 14 (the reveal how the kid's hand ends up in the outback)to the last page of issue 12, where it makes more sense. However, someone forgot to delete the page from the new issue 14, so now it appears twice. Please make sure that it will be removed from the upcoming 4th HC volume that includes issue 14.
I am also really looking forward to the improved Maxximized version of issue 27, which was full of typos (I can post a full list if you like),with one of Artie's ex-wives being called Patty instead of Judy, and, most annoyingly, used a completely different font for the lettering and did not have the previously established color-coded speech boxes to distinguish the characters.

Keep up the great work. The blog entries showing photos of some of your cover art in various stages of completion are mind-blowing. So much better than the printed versions. I hope there will be a Maxx art book with colours close to the originals.
