It's time once again to check out some of this week's coolest comic book art that you won't ever see in an actual comic. The reason you won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and websites. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.
Next week is New York Comic Con. A lot of the artists seen here will be there, working hard in Artist Alley. One artist that has been doing several pre-con commissions is Marcio Takara. Check out the latest sketches and inked versions he posted on his Tumblr.
Peter Nguyen was at Vegas Con and posted some sketches on his Tumblr. He'll also be at NYCC. Most of his commission slots are full but he may still have some if you visit him on day 1. He'll be at table H-12.
Chris Giarrusso posted some more Mini-Marvel pieces which are for sale (some have been sold already) on his website. He also posted a Justice League and a Spider-Man pic that is for an auction to benefit SAFE in Hunterdon (to aid victims of domestic violence and abuse).
That's it for this week. There may not be an Awesome Art installment next weekend as I'll be at NYCC, spending time in Artist Alley. If you're there, be sure to look for us and say hello. Also be sure to tell these artist how much you dig their stuff.
