David Quiles - Yoda

2012.03.31 NY Comic Book Marketplace, NYC

David Quiles was listed in the show directory as a underground artist. He has worked on projects for Mimi Rodgers - Zombie  Killer, Bare Knuckled Fighter, Fur By Night, 10,000 Miles Through Exile and Hauntmares for Infinite Line Comics. Quiles has also provided illustrations for Now Comics, harris Publications, Nova Star Studios, Argo Comics, Jam Packed Productions, GB Studios, Crazee Comics, Blazer Studios, FBMFM Books and others...

Quiles' art is utilizes a dark gritty macabre ink sketch technique, which when seen in person has more impact on the viewer than does any reproduction. At first I hesitated to ask for a sketch. I was drawn to the style, but I was not sure his technique would work on a small piece. I was wrong. We discussed the cover, and Quiles did not hesitate. The art is dark and effective. The shades of black force you to continually look at Yoda's features. The light effect from Yoda's hand is cool...
