Original Art


Silent Bob

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find the original version of this thread so I'm gonna assume it didn't survive. Let's start it up a-new then. We'll all agree that comic art can have a great feeling to it in it's raw original stage (pencils, inks, paintings etc) so we oughtta have a thread to showcase the stuff that we really like.

 

That said, these aren't much, they're just the quick sketches I was able to get in my sketchbook at WizardWorld.

Despite his new style in Daredevil: Father that makes DD look like Batman's Bane on a bad day, I really dig Joe Quesada's pencils. Yes, I even like the wonky designs he does with the billy club cord. And I can see why Jimmy Palmiotti likes to work with him so much. The guy draws every detail. I could ink a Quesada page and I'm a lousy inker. Here's some stuff from his run on Guardian Devil.

I went last August. Mostly just to get this signed:

An' if you like that Craig Thompson sketch, the one he did in our copy of Blankets was even better. Jess and I were just hanging out at the Top Cow booth and we happened upon a gorgeous hardcover version of Blankets (the last one ever printed, according to the guy there, but who knows) then we looked up and noticed that Thompson just happened to be standing there signing books. Wasn't on the guest list or anything, just was hanging out. So he put this in the front page of our new Blankets hardcover. Only the word "Blankets" is actually printed on the page.

He also did a quick sketch in our Carnet De Voyage.

*le sigh* I'm such a girly geek but I have such a crazy crush on Craig Thompson. His art is fucking fantastic, and he himself is so humble and patient and giving for his fans - obviously, as he was courteous enough to give us not one, but THREE original illustrations, despite being stricken with tendonitis in his hands. How could you not love that???

 

And For those of you who didn' tknow - my Avatar was taken directly from the "Blankets" illustration above, which DJ was kind enough to color for me.

Dave Gibbons taught me more about the mechanics of drawing than high school and college combined. I've got a nifty Rorsharch on the front of watchmen, and (arguably better still) a Rougue Trooper on card that I treasure, in a can't remember where I put them kind of way.
