I've had a bit of an embargo on me until now, but one year ago today Marvel comics phoned me up and asked me to redesign the X-men. There was no money involved, but in order to make it legally work-for-hire they did promise to sent me a free cosplay costume of any design that made it through. Though they couldn't guarantee anything other than size 8-11 (age).
I sent off the redesign for Cyclops below, but never heard back from Marvel. I hope it wasn't some kind of April Fool's joke on their behalf.
