I've just started this page and recently came back to the world of comics, really like the new digital artworks.. although I have my favorite comic artists from the 70's'80's. and characters...but have opinions about Marvel /DC..and what these companies have done not just with the characters but the treatment of their staff, artists and writers ,It's a great way to get your work out there.. but I've read too many reviews or blogs on how they treat their staff...I won't support that.. so I look for other comic houses to read from.
I am a Fine Artist/ Graphic Designer.. and maybe trying my hand at comic illustrations myself. with my own characters.. I won't use traditional characters to practice, just use my own.. it's a lot of work to say the least..but like drawing and painting realism, comic illustration takes practice, I've been drawing since I was very young. Taken art classes all through high school and college. I have been published in Drawing magazine and have about 10 cd covers published.. but now I know getting your work published with other people's work like bands, magazines etc.. is kind of a waste.. I want to represent my own work, not be on the cover of someone else's work.. it's always a long road...so might as well make it about my work.
Have a great New Year All!! Hope 2016 brings us some good books to read!!
