Michel Gagné's Miscellaneous Art Gallery
My contribution to the Artistic Interpretations of Literary Figures Collection

Here's a commission I did for a fellow named Steven Gettis. It all came about when I received the following email:

Hi Michel,

I've actually been procrastinating in getting a hold of you for some time now (though not quite sure why). I finally tracked down a copy of Numar yesterday at a local shop and loaned out the Zed trade and "Rabbits" to my sister-in-law the day before and I figured it was too many "Michel Gagné" coincidences in my life to ignore. :-)

Over the past bit , I've been constructing a personal themed sketch collection (and corresponding website to display these things) that features different artists and writers interpreting their favourite literary characters or authors. It's really done remarkably well the response to it has been so amazingly positive with new stuff by Alex Toth, Joe Kubert, Will Eisner, Gene Colan, Jim Mahfood, David Mack, Mark Andrews, Bill Sienkiewicz, Kaluta, Renee French, Jeff Jones, Herb Trimpe, Walt Simonson, John Buscema, George Pratt, Bryan Talbot, Jon Muth, and Scott Morse (amoung many others). The site with all the artwork posted is at: http://www.digitalmedusa.com/sgettis and worth checking out if you have the time.

Michel, is there any way I get you involved in this? Unfortunately there is no way I can make this request in person (as I live in Southern Alberta) and have had to rely on email, snail mail and the kindness of others for this entire thing so far (but I can't really complain as I've been really blessed with the way it's been received).
I really hope that this is something you find appealing. All the best from Canada,


After exchanging a few emails and agreeing on terms, I created this image inspired by Felix Salten's children's book classic.
