Today in the mail I received my blank sketch cover of 2016 IDW TMNT Universe #1. I was inspired and decided to sketch a close up of Krang’s face. One thing led to another and here you go. I used a black sharpie and some oil pastel crayons. I then sprayed it with a clear sealant. What do you think? I might sell it on ebay if anybody is interested.

Before submitting the final cover art to CBCS for grading and encapsulation, I went back over it with more inking and sharpie.  I then added a tone of green and purple light sources from both sides of Krang’s face.  The comic book was submitted for a yellow label graded book at CBCS in Clearwater, FL in late September.  I should get the book back by early January 2017.  Which do you like more?  Here is the final submitted book:

The 2016 SDCC IDW Mega Bloks #1B TMNT Time Capsule from Kevin Eastman!

I’m about to unleash something to the world FEW have seen. I am excited to share it here with you all, whom I consider colleagues of elite collectibles and highly sought after gems. Sometimes historical pieces are what get me really excited. Most Time Capsules sold at auction by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle co-creator  Kevin Eastman go anywhere from $300-$500 tyically. This one however is for a comic book of a very very small print run for the attendees of this years 2016 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) convention only. Without further ado, here we go…

I received my 2016 IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle TMNT SDCC Mega Bloks #1B Time Capsule today via FEDEX. Let’s take a journey shall we? Here’s what a $960 sheet of paper looks like:

OKAY, so now here’s where it gets REALLLLLY interesting. I mentioned via ebay to Fiona his office assistant that I bought on presale order Heavy Metal #281 which is Kevin Eastman’s first solor cover on his own magazine. I told her I wanted a signed copy but there wasn’t one offered. She said Kevin told her to put one in the capsule via ebay messages. Well, to my astonishment, here’s what I ACTUALLY got:

I didn’t get the magazine. Instead, holy schnikes, I got a 2016 Heavy Metal #281 Color 8 1/4″ x 11 3/4″ ARTIST’S PROOF signed by KEVIN EASTMAN and his wife, COURTNEY EASTMAN! SUPER MEGA TURBO RARE! (Kevin Eastman’s first solo cover of his own magazine) Courtney is the model by which April O’ Neil was conceived and now the model on the cover of this magazine! (By the way, google her, she is extremely beautiful)
