FAIREST Cover 1 by AdamHughes FAIREST Cover 1 by AdamHughes
Year: 2011
Client: Vertigo/ DC Comics
Media: Media: Pencil, PITT Pen and COPIC marker on Strathmore Drawing paper, then colored with Adobe Photoshop CS2.

This is the wraparound cover to Bill Willingham's FAIREST, coming soon from Vertigo/DC Comics. It's the new new FABLES spinoff book, and I'm the regular cover artist. I've been a FABLES fan for a while now, and am really excited to be a contributor now!

This one was WORK, I mus say, and not for the reasons you might think... When I do regular covers for a book, it usually takes me 5-7 covers before I figure out how I like to portray the main character.

On THIS cover, I had to commit to how I would portray, what, 13 characters? 'Ugh!' and "Oh, no!'

I'm not going to name all the characters portrayed here, because sharp-eyed FABLES fans seem to be having too much fun trying to guess all of them!

I can't think of anyone more appropriate to illustrate a book about a murder mystery in the world of Fables, which is sparked by the tyranny of beauty. Indeed these ladies are the fairest in all the land.
Wonderful!

 I've seen this image several times in the past, but I've only just noticed that there is a gentleman hidden amidst all these lovely ladies (not to mention the elemental forces in distinctly feminine form); this fact and the contented expression on this fellows face can best be explained with two words 'Adam Hughes'.

 'Nuff said.
