Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice!

For the month of June, I’m going to be doing a daily feature that is the return of the Month of Art Stars. Only I’m mixing it up a little bit this time around. Now, instead of me determining which artists to spotlight each day, I’m throwing it out there to the pros themselves! Each day, I will be featuring an artist (either currently working or from the past) chosen for a spotlight by another professional comic book artist who felt that this artist deserved some more attention. Do note that almost all the artists I asked gave multiple suggestions, so when I say that Artist Y is Artist’s X’s choice, do note that Artist X likely gave me 8-10 names and I just chose one of them for the feature.

The first featured artist will be up in a bit (and then this will be the archive for the whole month’s worth of artists featured)!

Hope you enjoy the feature!

How about providing a list of pros participating? It would be neat to guess who they would pick.

That sounds like the business. Can’t wait to see it!

No month of ugly costume designs? DANG IT!

…okay, this is much cooler.

So Brian, any that DIDN’T pick Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez? ;-)

I won’t lie, he WAS chosen by at least one artist. :)

How about providing a list of pros participating? It would be neat to guess who they would pick.

Maybe when everyone’s sent in their picks!

I can give you a quick sampling – here are the last four artists to send in their picks:

Mike Collins, Jae Lee, Alex Robinson and Dave Gibbons.

Look at you, with your access and clout!

This is a really cool idea.

Very cool, can’t wait to see who is picked!

Out of curiosity, why did you get multiple choices and then choose one rather than letting the artist choose one option to go with?

As you might imagine, some artists appeared on multiple lists – this way, that’s not a problem.
