I already posted on here asking who you're favorite writer is....
 
now let's see who you're favorite artist who has drawn John Constantine is
 
My favorite artist is, Leonardo Manco.


The Guy has a style that is both realistic and almost artistic like a painting, it has a certain savoir-faire to it. I like it, I like it a lot. 
 
So who is your favorite artist who has drawn John Constantine in the past?

I cant say who is my fav because there have been so many good artist (even though  Simon Bisley is higher on the list than most) on hellblazer, but I can say who my least favorite is.......Giuseppe Camuncoli his artwork is good but when reading hellblazer I don't want it to look like a f@#kin cartoon

really? I've loved Giuseppe's work on Hellblazer...it was especially perfect for Sectioned...and it worked awesome in Bloody Carnations (the shift between his and Bisley's amazing art)... 
 
not sure who my favorite would be though...both Bisley and Giuseppe are amazing and the freshest in my mind...I also liked Frusin and Phillips and McKean...Glenn Fabry's covers were also good...I can't remember all the others off the top of my head

Okay there are some stories that suit his art style perfectly like  

“The mortification of the flesh”, it was not a serious story but still enjoyable, but when it came to Pheebs and the story with her Epiphany and the love struck demon at first it was a good fit but the tone of the story got really dark really quick.

 

When the arc came to a head I think Giuseppe style Just did not blend well with the story that was told and I did not get the sense of immersion I would have got if it was one of the many other better artist doing the panels that suited the tone.........IMO

Gotta agree that Lee Bermejo is probably the favorite of my favorites.

Very tough question.

Best long term interiors I think Marcelo Frusin althought his work really declined towards the end. Manco is an extremely close second.

Best covers and one very memorable interior would be Tim Bradstreet. Although Bermejo's covers were amazing!

Best short term to Lee Bermejo. Really wish he could have done much more.

Worst hands down Steve Dillon.
