We all love comic art, right? That's a big part of what makes comics so fun. It's a visual medium. We love comic art so much that each week we seek out as much art as we can find. Art from comic book artists that won't appear in comics. These artist often do sketches and commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and websites. They are just way too good not to get as much attention as possible.
Joel Gomez will be at Long Beach Comic Con next week. He posted some more sketches for the forthcoming UpperDeck 2012 Marvel Premier Sketch Card Set on his Tumblr. And check out the sketch covers he did as well.
Mike Allred realized that he's done a bunch of sketches and hasn't shown them off. He posted a bunch of "re-do" covers on his blog and you can buy original Mike Allred art over at gotsuperpowers.com. Ginchy or what?
This first commission Chris Giarrusso posted on his website is kind of funny. He was asked to draw Randy "Macho Man" Savage. I was at his table at NYCC when he was thinking over what he was going to do. It's a cool process seeing how these sketches actually come about. He also posted a Spidey and Cap sketch cover.
Agnes posted some commissions on her Tumblr this week.
Check out his battle-damaged Spider-Man.
This was actually given away. Here's the details on how and why from Todd's Tumblr:
I run a contest on Twitter at most all the conventions I attend now. People are invited to retweet the sketches I post at that con and at the end of the weekend, one random retweeter will receive a head sketch of the character of their choice.
This is what the winner of my New York Comic Con 2012 Sketch Retweet Contest chose: Battle Damaged Spider-Man.
Next contest will be during Long Beach Comic Con Nov 3-4, 2012.

That's it for this week. Next week I will also be at Long Beach Comic Con. Hope to see you there!
