Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice – Gabriel Hardman
Every day this month I’m going to feature the work of a great artist, only instead of me picking the artist to feature, they will be picked by their peers, fellow professional comic book artists who are picking out artists (from the past and present) who they think deserve special attention. Do note that most artists I asked about this gave me multiple answers and I picked out one choice out of a number of suggestions, so these are not definitive answers, like “Artist X likes Artist Y and he thinks all other Artists are terrible!” Here is an archive of the artists featured so far!
Today, we have the pick of Mitch Breitweiser, the great Marvel artist that I’ve actually featured before in Month of Art Stars (click here to check out the feature I did on Mitch).
Mitch’s pick is Gabriel Hardman!
Gabriel Hardman was a freelance comic book artist during the 1990s but soon transitioned into film work. More recently, he has returned to comic book freelance work once again.
Here are some of his recent work from Agents of Atlas…
As you can see, he has a nice, clear smooth style of storytelling. He tends to go with a “less is more” approach to his storytelling, and it’s a beautiful approach.
Here are some various comic pin-ups he did…
And if you’re interested in seeing some sequentials, here is a comic he did for Ape Entertainment…
You can find more of his work at his galleries on his website here.
Thanks for the great recommendation, Mitch!
