One-a-Day, Volume 2, #1 ... Artesia.



I have started a new sketchbook. This will hopefully turn into "One-a-day, Volume 2"...but since the first sketchbook evolved into something completely different than what I expected it to be...who knows what this will become :)

My amazon pre-order list has grown huge...thankfully amazon does not charge until they ship the books. Here is what I have on order:

The Art of Neal Adams
The Art of Steranko
Both books will be published by Vanguard and they did a pretty good job with the Michael Golden book a few years back, so I have high hope for that.

Rip Kirby Volume 2 HC
I really liked the first volume (muddy reproductions and all :)). Truly a beautiful approach to comics and storytelling.

Tony Harris: Art and Skullduggery
I have always been a fan of Tony Harris' art, ever since his run on Starman. Recently I have not been as excited about his work, although he is more popular than ever with the ExMachina series, but I loved his "RoundEye" story from a few years back and since "RoundEye" is featured on the cover I hope to see more of that inside.

Wednesday Comics
The Wednesday comic series printed on nice paper in their original size. Ryan Sook, Brian Stelfreeze, Lee Bermejo....what's not to like?

Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes (Adam Hughes Cover to Cover)
I could never afford to buy all of the comics with his individual covers, so here is my chance to buy a bunch :)

X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan Volume 1
I already mentioned that in an earlier post...I am really looking forward to this.

Also on my list are a few books that already came out, but I have not geared up to buy yet:
Sinister House of Secrets- contains a reprint of Alex Toth's 36 page story "Bride of the Falcon" from 1972
House of Mystery Volume 1- contains 5 short Alex Toth story reprints for a total of 54 pages of beautiful black and white art.

Nice drawing Alex! The folds in the fabric make me want to ink.

Jack,

Thank you for such a nice compliment. If I can draw something (anything) that inspires you to draw...I am happy :)

Jack said...

I'm the one who should thank you.

You've been inspiring me ever since I started drawing again, which is almost two years now.

Btw, I am working on a Thanos for you. My first few attempts didn't work, but I got an idea yesterday...
