The coolest comic art you won't see in comic books.
It's C2E2 weekend and one of the coolest things about conventions is walking through Artist Alley and seeing the artists doing commissions and sketches. Many of them post their sketches on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter accounts. Doing these sketches gives them the opportunity to draw characters they might normally get to do in their normal assignments. We think they are simply too great to go unnoticed.
Yesterday I got the chance to finally meet Robert Atkins in person. He's a really nice guy besides being talented. He's currently on a mission to post an Avengers sketch each day. Be sure to check out his website to find out how you can get commissions from him. Check out his Hawkeye, Black Panther, Darkhawk, Black Knight and Justice.
Gabriel Hardman is also at C2E2 this weekend. Check out the pics of he posted on his website. He assured me he'd be posting more. Check out his Conan, Green Goblin, Man-Thing, Sandman, The Doctors and Yorick (from Y THE LAST MAN).
Peter Nguyen was busy at his table at C2E2 doing sketches, as always. Check out some of the last set of commissions he did at ECCC he posted on his Tumblr.
I got the chance to briefly talk to Todd Nauck (and his lovely wife) yesterday. Check out this pic of X-23 he posted on his Tumblr. It's actually for a charity auction to benefit the St. Jude's Children Hospital.
