Jake, I love the variant cover you did with the photo of Jim Henson. Where did the idea for that come from?
Myler: It was our awesome editor Cameron Chittock that came up with the idea, I believe. The Jim Henson Company has been super receptive to helping out, and provided a rare, high-quality photo. My only duty was adding the Fraggles and Doozers. I tried my best to match the focus of the photo, so I made some characters intentionally blurry. There are also some more subtle effects, like making sure that the characters have the same graininess and texture of the photo. It became way more time intensive than I was expecting, but it was also a really cool challenge and a lot of fun. And I really liked the final result!
I do too! :)
