Each and every week we gather up the best comic book art that you will not see in comics. The reason you won't is because artists often do sketches for fun and commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Many artists often arrange commissions through their sites so check them out for more detail if you're looking to own a cool original piece.
This weekend is Emerald City Comicon. Some of our 'regular' artists here will be there. If you live by Seattle, you'll want to try to make the show. I'm at the show running around as well. Hopefully we'll see another installment of the Mystery Art Challenge for next week.
Dustin Nguyen provided the cover to this year's program guide, posted on his Tumblr. He won't be able to do commissions at this year's show but he will have original art and prints for sale at his table in Artist Alley at table M-15.== TEASER ==
I've mentioned before how Paolo Rivera often posts behind-the-scene bits on what he uses for references when figuring out certain poses on his blog. You should see his process for the AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #17 cover. He also posted this great Space Ghost commission.
That's it for this week. Hopefully we'll see plenty of new sketches pop up over the next couple weeks from the artists at ECCC. If you're there and you spot me, make sure you say hello. I had to skip Friday but I will be there Saturday and Sunday.
