Here’s a young artist that doesn’t get enough work out there; John Cei Douglas. It was nearly 4 years ago I first looked at his debut comic Buffalo Roots, and even interviewed him about it. Such talent, yet so little comics work since then. Odd strips here and there; Solipsistic Pop 3, Paper Science 3, Solipsistic Pop 4, Paper Science 7, various little things online.
But he’s one of a talented group of comic artists who ply their trade in illustration and do comics as and when they can. A shame, but financial reality is financial reality I suppose.
However, when he does put out stuff, it’s always worth a look.
Two recent pieces have just gone up on his Flickr page. Go and look, go and tell him how he should be doing more comics!
The first page of Footnotes from Solipsistic Pop Volume 4. The whole strip available at John Cei Douglas’ Flickr.
