Anonymous asked: I own the original art to a few Stewart's covers. Is there a reason he doesn't sign his covers? Be seeing you, Brian
Thanks for your support.
I put my name on every page that leaves the studio. That’s it in the upper right. I wrote it. That’s my name.
What I don’t do is sign the page in the visible, printable area. Some artists do this on every page they draw; some do it on covers and splashes; some on covers only. Some just discreetly write in all caps, some have positively baroque signatures with flourishes and frames.
While I appreciate the desire in the not-so-distant uncredited past to lay claim where able, in this era of screaming narcissism, I just think it’s pretentious and unnecessary and one more goddam thing to do.
