Each week we search the internet for the coolest comic book art that won't ever appear in comic books. The reason you won't see them in comics is because artists often do commissions and sketches at conventions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter accounts. They are too good not to be seen by everyone. Many of these artists also offer commissions through their sites and Tumblrs so be sure to check them out.
Let's start off with Michael Walsh. Michael posted a couple pics on his Tumblr this week. He's also been doing a "Sketch Request Mondays" there where he'll choose one of the request to draw. This week's was Rocket Raccoon.== TEASER ==
Agnes Garbowska posted a few commissions that she's done recently on her Tumblr. She also posted her Summer 2012 convention schedule so be sure to head over there to check out where you'll be able to find her.
Todd Nauck posted a 'warm-up ink' sketch for his upcoming GUARDING THE GLOBE series he's working on (coming in September). Then check out this amazing picture of Totoro he did during a "Draw Something" game.
Are you ready for some Chris Giarrusso art? Check out this Avengers sketch that will go up for auction with proceeds going to the St. Louis branch of the Special Olympics (click here for more detail). And check out Chris' Abe Sapien and this week's Tribute Tuesday posted on his site.
I remember someone commenting how Batman was always appearing here each week. I almost didn't find any Batman sketches until I saw Rafael Albuquerque's sketch on Instagram. It was a commission and possible exclusive print for Paris Comicon.
Robert Atkins has been doing some G.I. Joe 'Yearbook' sketches. Here's a few but definitely check out his blog for more. I love what was under Snake-Eyes' pic, "Most likely to never call you back." Robert will also be at Project Comic Con this weekend so if you're in St. Louis, track him down and say hello from everyone at Comic Vine.
Our last selections come from Terry Dodson. Be sure to check out this week's DEFENDERS. Between his art and Fraction's writing, it's a fun book. Terry posted some sketches on his Deviant Art page that he did at Kapow! last month.
That's it for this week. I actually found a couple sketch covers I got back in February that I need to scan. Hopefully I can finally post those in next week's edition.
