Happy New Year. How long until we can stop saying that? Welcome to the first 'Awesome Art Picks' of the new year. Each and every week we search high and low for cool art from comic book artists. They often post sketches and commissions on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. We want to make sure everyone gets a chance to see them. Many of these artists also arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more informaiton.
Since we just celebrated the New Year, Skottie Young posted his hello and goodbye to the years on his website. He also posted a Darkwing Duck. Often when he posts these sketches, the originals are available for purchase.== TEASER ==
Last week the final issue of Sean Murphy's PUNK ROCK JESUS went on sale. It's a great series and you should check it out. Sean will be on next week's 'Invincibly Super Massive Comic Book Podcast of Stuff' and check out these awesome Madman and Batman sketches he posted on his Deviant Art Page last month.
Chris Giarrusso posted a few sketches on his website this week. He's been putting some up for sale so check to see if they've sold out already or not. He also posted a 'Trogdor the Burninator vs Iron Fist and Strong Bad.' And you can play the Trogdor game by clicking HERE.
And in case you haven't seen it before, check out this older piece Chris drew of the Comic Vine founders, Dave Snider, myself and Ethan Lance.
Eric Guzman posted a few 'animated' versions of DC and Marvel characters on his Deviant Art Page. Anyone besides me wishes we could see this happen?
Terry Dodson posted the penciled version to his upcoming variant cover for FANTASTIC FOUR #4 on his Deviant Art Page. Since he also posted the finished version, I thought I'd include that, even though it will appear in an actual comic.
That's it for this week. Let me know of any other comic book artists' blogs or sites if you know of any that are regularly posting new art.
