Modesty Gallows bird by Loopydave Modesty Gallows bird by Loopydave
Modesty Blaise Cover for 'the Gallows Bird' story in the Swedish Magazine Agent X9. Left a fair amount of blank space for extra tags and headers for this issue.

I remember this one being a little rushed coz of the work load at the time, but I thought it came up okay on the printed version anyway.

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop.

Oh, and Modesty didn't really die in this issue - just in case someone out there was concerned :D

I remember that story, the villainess in the front of the cover was trying to blow up the dams of New Orleans (it's from the late 70's).
The way Modesty escapes from this particular death trap could have only come from Mr. O'Donnell's mind!
It's been over a decade since any new story, in any kind of media, has come out...
Miss you MODESTY!

Thanks man.

I think I have a couple of Agent X9s laying around somewhere. Great stuff.
And a great piece, I'm sure they were thrilled!

Another great layout :thumbsup:
I usually don't like making comparison... but the face in front makes me think of Philip Castle :)
