Marko Djurdjevic on the Interior Art of ‘Thor’
Marko Djurdjevic first caught my eye with some of the amazing cover work he did for Marvel’s short-lived Blade series, and he’s continued to impress with his cover work on a wide variety of Marvel titles.
With Thor #7, Djurdjevic makes the leap to interior art for a two-issue run, and I’m looking forward to seeing how well he handles the transition. Den of Geek has a great interview with Djurdjevic about his process, his artistic inspiration and how he made the jump from covers to interior work:
So this is basically my first sequential artwork if you want if like that, my first full comic, but Marvel have been approaching me about doing this since like forever. Since I started out they asked me to do sequential artwork but we simply couldn’t find the right gig for me, for the first year so I kept doing my covers until Thor came up and I was like, you know, I’m gonna do this!
There were couple of good offers but you know, like this offer was especially good because there is just the two issues and it’s a good start out for me because basically I never did sequential artwork before. I didn’t want to jump on to a twelve issue ongoing series or whatever and realise halfway through them that I’m not the guy to do this. It’s better to start slow and find your way through than decide to jump on something different later on, so just two issues was the perfect start for me.
Oh, and the interview also includes evidence of what appear to be some worrying similarities between his habits and those of his favorite author.
