Artist Jeffrey Brown brings Adam to life

I spent last Saturday at the HeroesCon in Charlotte, N.C., and picked up a handful of Dark Shadows themed sketches. I'll be sharing them over the next week or so, and wanted to start with a color sketch of Robert Rodan as Adam by Jeffrey Brown.

Brown's art has been making the rounds on Facebook and Tumblr in recent weeks thanks to the success of his book, Darth Vader and Son. I had not expected to see Brown at the convention (mostly because I did a terrible job of actually reading the guest list) and was excited to see what he could do with the characters from Dark Shadows. I handed him a stack of photos for reference and he selected Adam.

Brown has also written and illustrated a number of independent* graphic novel, and his book Unlikely is now sitting on my "to read" book stack.

(* "Independent" usually means "sans superheroes.")
