Having worked on cover art for IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, artist Juni Ba just shared amazing character portraits in a bid for his own story.
Artist Juni Ba (Monkey Meat, Kayin and Abeni) has caught turtle fever, showing off awesome new art as proof he should be hired for interior art duties on IDW Publishing’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A young artist who has already produced cover art for the fan-favorite series, Ba recently took to Twitter to show off some impressive character sketches from his portfolio in what became a boast-worthy bid for a part in the franchise’s future, and it looks like he’s more than up to the task.
The comic version of TMNT has undergone a renaissance in recent years, with the introduction of the hard-hitting female turtle Jennika and the return of the original Eastman & Laird partnership for the blockbuster miniseries Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin. The ownership of TMNT currently lies with ViacomCBS, with the comic license currently held by IDW Publishing which, in 2021, is their best-selling franchise. Attracting all manner of talent to take up art responsibilities in the pages of their world-famous franchise, the Turtles appear to have one fan who thinks he deserves a shot at adding his name to the list.
