Artist Appreciation: Phil Noto’s Hank Pym’s Photo Archive.
This is one of my favorite projects by an artist. Not only is each of his works beautifully detailed, but Noto also seems to turn these fictional superheroes into real life people. I love the use of actual dates in order to show us a glimpse into the real lives of these characters. I feel like I would see this “photographs” in old issues of TIME Magazine or something. Fantastic.
Previous Phil Noto posts: Havok and Polaris, Betsy Braddock (1983), and Winter Storm (1978).

After a lot of time and struggle to get this piece out there and finished, here it finally is! The client wanted a fashion inspired take on Spidey’s three leading ladies, Mary Jane, Gwen Stacy, and Felicia Hardy - something akin to a Vogue cover, he mentioned. I was absolutely excited at the prospect of juxtaposing all three of these women together in a piece. I have done a MJ/Gwen piece in the past and needed to do a new take on their looks and styles. I really wanted each woman to feel different, and while I’m happy with their fashion choices I do wish their faces came out a bit more distinct. I really tried - even going so far as to base them on different actresses. But let’s be honest, most Hollywood starlets fall into a very narrow standard of beauty. So a bad translation of faces mixed with a fairly slim view of Hollywood beauty leads to so-so character distinction.
After I finished it I knew I had to create a mock Vogue cover to complete the feel of the piece. I am not a graphic designer by any means to don’t knock the type treatments too harshly. I’ve no clue what I’m doing. Hopefully it’s all really coy and cute and playful. Enjoy, Tumblrites. I realize Tumblr is not made for comments but I do enjoy catching them when I can so comment or reply away! Love the feedback.

That one time Steve was zapped and everyone thought he was dead (the many death scares Steve has given people, geez) and Sam took over as Captain America.
