A few months back, on November 2, 2012, I posted a blog entry entitled Captain Carrot Fan Art: Artist Unknown. It featured an awesome piece of Zoo Crew art, and I really wanted to know who the artist was.
Well, it turns out it wasn't a piece of fan art, but a professional piece done by comic artist Phil Jimenez (Wonder Woman, Infinite Crisis, New X-Men, amongst others) for an issue of the now defunct Wizard magazine. I talked briefly with Phil on facebook, and he told me it was done up as part of an April Fool's Day issue. He also told me that there was a COLOR version of the picture that had been done for the magazine, but he unfortunately didn't have a copy of it for me.
Of course, I now needed to track this down.
For once, luck was with me. I didn't have to look far. In the comments section of the same blog entry, a CCB fan calling himself Monitor_ep told me to contact him, as he had the color version to send me.
I immediately...forgot all about this.
Yes, somehow I forgot about it. Monitor_ep left his comment back at the beginning of January 2013. I read it. And forgot about it. Bad, Sean. BAD!
But then...I remembered! And sent off an e-mail to Monitor_ep asking if he still had it. And he did! So here it is for your viewing pleasure!
I didn't think it was possible for this picture to look any better, but...well, there you go!
So a huge Captain Carrot THANK YOU going out to Monitor_ep for sending me the pic. And hey, check out his DeviantART page if you have the time. Monitor_ep has a TON of awesome custom DC action figures pictured there, and they look fantastic. Definitely worth a peek. You can find his page HERE.
