Love letters to the tv shows I loved as a kid.
Back in 1993, the Fox network aired the first episode of X-Men: the Animated Series as part of its Saturday morning cartoon lineup.  As a MASSIVE X-Men fan (particularly the incarnation drawn by Jim Lee, which is what hooked me on comics to begin with), of course I loved every second of this show.  It received impressively high ratings and ran for 5 seasons, with a total of 76 episodes, many of which were based on popular storylines from the comics.

In 2009, I had the good fortune to work on package art for Disney's release of the show, as well as Iron Man: The Animated Series.  Had a lot of fun working on these, and I hope it shows.
X-Men: The Animated Series Vol.1.
X-Men: The Animated Series Vol.2. 

This season featured an arc based on 'The Dark Phoenix Saga,' one of the comics' all-time greatest storylines.
X-Men: The Animated Series Vol.3.
Original, unused lineart for X-men: The Animated Series Vol.4.  This one's a recreation of the show's catchy and very popular intro sequence, but it was deemed too busy for the final package.  So we went with a zoomed-in version of the Wolverine/Sabretooth conflict instead (below).
X-Men: The Animated Series Vol.4, final version.
X-Men: The Animated Series Vol.5.

Captain America made a memorable guest appearance on a couple of episodes this season, so we featured him prominently on the cover, along with other notables.
Iron Man: The Animated Series

Shipped to stores just as the first Iron Man film was making its blockbuster premiere.  Genius bit of marketing there.  It took me a couple of weeks to actually locate a copy of this on store shelves--it kept selling out.
