"I went through this phase a few years ago - actually I still kind of dig it - where I was doing these up close, cropped tightly, what I hope would be iconic, shots of some Marvel heroes. These were mostly Wolverine covers, but there was also a batch of unused Iron Man pieces. Seeing this particular sketch for the first time in a while got me thinking that maybe I could apply the "up close and personal" style of cover to all the connecting pieces. Now, all that remained was to call Tom and let him know I was back in. I hate speaking to Tom more than I have to. Oh, and before I forget, this was the photo ref that I took of myself for that original Iron Man piece." — J.Q.
