IDW release a special cover of Locke and Key comic into the creator’s art portfolio of all his cover issues just by looking at his illustrations of the characters holding the key to the truth of all.

I haven’t seen all the issues of Locke and Key, until now what I’m seeing is all his original works of his comic book series. The drawings are intimidating and somehow it reflects the readers and observers of this book as an art portfolio filled with fantasy and occult. The details of his artwork is amazing to know that he uses some perspective and the angles where the characters are holding their keys on their hands. However, the artist included some inking of his whole cover artworks on this book, he constructed his artwork to have a number of scenes where the characters are simply staring themselves at a mirror while holding a key next to the clock. And he also made the cover arts more fantasized with some imitating creatures that actually haunt them to death. It’s simply amazing for Gabriel Rodriguez to have a portfolio book of his artwork of his own comic book.

If anyone haven’t heard of Locke and Key or either heard of Gabriel Rodriguez, he’s a comic book artist from Chile, before his career as a comic artist started, he studied Architecture at a university in Chile. However he worked his way to his success for his career until the U.S. Producers was interested of his work and Gabriel went to the U.S., and worked as a full-time comic artist. And most of his best comics that he made is Locke and Key, a horror tale about a family that had a tragic life and the rest of the story is a mystery to all the readers. I would recommend to anyone who’s interested of reading a horror and a mysterious story of Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke and Key because sooner or later you’ll get interested.
