I was asked to draw poster for a special small run print for the French Comic Convention in Lille 2007. I chose to draw the X-Men, re-imagining the splash from Uncanny X-Men 175. I've always been a huge fan of Paul Smith (back then, and even more nowadays), I was really thrilled to do this homage.
The art was done in pen and ink with some dry brush work here and there. Later digitally colored.
