This was done for the cover of a comic on Mike Tyson, published by the highly cheesy Personality Comics in the early 90's. They produced a number of bios and pin-up books on rock bands and celebrities. I also did pin-ups for an issue on Madonna and one on Star Trek related characters (I did Harry Mudd). I also lettered, of all things, an issue of Rock-N-Roll Comics on Kiss, which was inked by my friend Mitch Waxman, creator of Calber Press' Plasma Baby (for which I provided painted covers and inked most of an issue).
The original cover for the Mike Tyson painting contained the title belt behind Mike, but I was unhappy with it in hindsight and removed it, replacing it with the Photoshop textured background shown here. The painting, done in oils is on 15"X20" illustration board.
