Each week we gather up the best comic book art that won't be seen in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and websites. Many even pre-arrange commissions through their sites. Last week was New York Comic Con and we're seeing quite a bit coming out of that show.
Chris Giarrusso participated in the Mystery Art Challenge at NYCC. (You'll see those images down below). Check out some of the art he posted on his website. I was so tempted to buy that Days of Future Past recreation at the show.
Brian Buccellato never posts the commissions he does at shows. I had to take pics of these with my phone. He also did a really cool Red Hood one that he forgot to snap a pic of.
You might have seen the Mystery Art Challenge video earlier this week. It was Jean Grey and a Toaster. In case you don't know the story, the challenge always consists of a known character and a random object. In most cases, like this one, I come up with the random object right before the first person starts drawing. I knew it would be Jean and as I was walking towards Artist Alley, a toaster just popped into mind. The coolest thing is seeing the different artists draw different versions of her.
Here's the video again, in case you missed it.
Here's scans of their art.
That's it for this week. Be on the look out for another installment.
