Art For Art's Sake…

Comics and the Internet…. full of pretty pictures….

Michael Zulli Death (Comic Art Fans):

WJC does a mean Joker….

And so does Darryl Cunningham…. (am I spotting an artist’s challenge in the works?)

And whilst we’re on Batman… Frazer Irving has a great new Tumblr, from which“This afternoon we have Batman to enjoy. As I work, I tend to take screenshots of specific stages in order to remind myself later of the process involved in any given work, just in case it turns out well and I want to recreate certain effects later on. The next few posts will show this cover to Batman Inc, with each layer of detail being built up to form the finished piece, including the errors that got fixed at the 11th hour.”

I don’t often splutter coffee out over Dork Tower, but the science fan inside me loved this….

Neill Cameron’s artwork for Pirates Of Pangaea: “I am delighted to be able to share with you this first bit of previewy teasery postery art from Dan Hartwell and I’s upcoming swashbuckling dinosaurical magnum opus, The Pirates of Pangaea. Coming in The Phoenix Comic, a brand new story comic for children launching in January 2012!”

Andi Watson – Boy Wizard:

Comic Twart has a Flash moment – Mr. Hawthorne:

Bruce Timm Nick Fury (Comic Art Fans) – Nick Fury co-created by Jack Kirby.

    There’s a load of cracking jokers out there in the twitters. Ian Culbard started it off last week, hard to keep up with though. You should get the rest on. Ian Culbard, Jonathan Edwards, Robert Ball, Faz Choudhury, Dan Berry are just a few off the very top of my head.

      Yes, I keep meaning to look for them…. but have been hitting head against comics for the past few days, or attempting to review them, as I think it’s better known. Soon, soon!

    I noticed PJ Holden had a good post-it note Joker.

    That Kermit and Yoda is ice cream to a mellowing heart.
