I regularly link to updates posted online by various writers I know, or whose blogs I follow, but I've also been fortunate to work with a number of artists over the years and am a fan of comic artwork, so today I present the first in an occasional series of artist round-ups.
Let's start with Leigh 'Defoe' Gallagher, 2000AD artist extraordinaire, who has posted about what's involved in creating a new comic strip character (in this case Aquila, written by Gordon Rennie) and the design process behind the creation of new monsters.
Then there's Karl Richardson (who some of you will remember from Black Library's Lone Wolves graphic novel) on creating a 2000AD cover featuring Dan Abnett's new strip Grey Area.
The creation of another 2000AD cover now, this time by Matt Brooker (a.k.a. D'israeli) after Japanese print-master Katsushika Hokusai.
And lastly for this update, there's Simon 'Pye' Parr, with some rather more design-oriented... stuff!
