It's time to check out the coolest comic book art you won't see in comics. The reason you won't see it is because artists love to do sketches for fun or for commissions. They often post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter accounts. At conventions, if you're lucky, you can get sketches like these from them, or you can contact many of them through their sites and get a commission of your own. These images are too good to go unnoticed.
Tony Moore art is always great to see. He has done some recent conventions and has posted them on his Tumblr. Check out his versions of Carnage, Wolverine, Punisher, Donatello and a...severed Skrull head.

This next one might not technically belong here. Cliff Chiang posted this nice Joss Whedon on his Tumblr. The reason I say it shouldn't be here is because it is a published piece, just not in a comic. He did this for GQ magazine.
Going back to yesterday, it was a great day being Star Wars Day along with marking the U.S. opening of The Avengers. Unfortunately it's also the day Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys passed away. Check out the tribute Dustin Nguyen posted on his Tumblr. Let's wish happy thoughts to Yauch's friends and family.
And last but not least, it's time for some Paolo Rivera art (his DAREDEVIL cover also made this week's Best Comic Book Covers of the Week). Because everyone's talking about the Avengers, he decided to post a Kirby-inspired Superman pic on his blog. Along with another Hulk commission.
Hope you enjoyed this week's picks. Be sure to check out the artists' pages or follow their Tumblrs or Twitter accounts. Be sure to let them know how awesome we all think they are.
