more importantly SPIRAL ZONE:
On the left is the Spiral zone stuff I was deeply into as a kid and the right is the japanese toys that seem to predate Dirk Courage and his Zone riders.
I really like the idea of the vehicle that is just a gun mounted on a wheel you sit inside. What the fuck else do you need?
There’s a site: http://www.spiral-zone.com/
Here’s some old xmen the Blacksad dude, Juanjo Guarnido drew in the 80’s.
and some Spanish edition Inferno covers he did. I always enjoy how much lounging around there was during Inferno. What a cozy crisis it must’ve been.
and some more recent stuff of him drawing other people’s characters.
Dude draws a mean spiderman.
Here’s a Will Kirkby pages I was impressed by. like just drawing a crazy map or insane city scape would be too easy.
One of the comics I picked up at the Stumptown con is this Expansion by Matt Sheean and Malachi Ward. Good cover huh?
It’s great solid SF, like something that would be in Heavy metal in a perfect world.
It’s about these sci fi soldiers that hide out in a black hole space thing that is occupied by a cult that’s hiding out there until the end of time.
Also when I was in Portland I saw this strip club sign that looks like they we’re looking at this old Dave Stevens, Betty page.
And I just found this on my computer, a year or so ago I thought it was funny to be photoshopping the clothes off the Stevens drawing while doing an interview.
Apparently I got bored when I hit the knees. You’re all class mr Graham.
another big part of Portland was getting to meet Lin Visel whose work I like lots. She drew me a Sexica drawing. soo good.
Her stuff is here if you haven’t read it:
after the con I did some of her Effort comics characters in my sketchbook.
Here’s some Yuki Akira Kitamiti cat stuff. I like the idea of printing stuff you can cut out and fold in comics.
and a comic on using an inkpot that I like the look of.
That and lots more good shit here;
someeee 80’s akira toriyama. I really like the colors on these.
and here’s some Dirty pair art. off the Studio JIPANG site. http://www001.upp.so-net.ne.jp/jipang/kei/
Aight– I’m off to watch a Doctor who. and later pages.
Also I got a twitter
I’ve been thinking about how important it is to cultivate excitement about making comics, part of that is this site but also I’ve been trying to sometimes draw later in the day so by the time I get to it I’m hungry for it.
