Chapter 84 - ArchieVerse - Celebrating The Archie Comics Universe Made By Olly Jordan Artist - 2019
Updated: Dec 29, 2020
Here it is, a little teaser for my Instagram, the name of ArchieVerse Collection was made. As mentioned throughout my blog posts discussing the Riverdale series of artwork, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series of artwork and Katy Keene series of artwork, all three of those series are a part of a larger collection which has now been named the ArchieVerse Collection. These three series of work are joined together for one overarching series of artwork because they are all within the same universe on screen. The TV shows that the artwork is based on is all based on Archie Comics from back in the 50s and has been reimagined in the modern day by Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa who started with Riverdale, then Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, then Katy Keene.
There is still potential for the ArchieVerse to grow should I feel the need to expand or add a few characters, but for now, it is finished and I am very proud of the whole collection. Each piece is of a high standard, and if they weren't of a high enough standard before, I have gone back and repainted so that they are as good as they can be. I can not imagine how many hours have gone into this collection, I know that all the Riverdale work is around 360 hours, so I can imagine this whole collection is possibly around 500 hours work if I were to go and work it out. I do usually note down how long each painting takes for my own reference. This is the biggest collection of artwork I have to date and I might as well celebrate it and promote it as much as I can, which is why it is the majority of the artwork available on my Etsy store and why I do weekly discounts on Riverdale work.
I have added details about the overarching collection within the instagram teaser above, it describes just how much work has gone into the collection.
