Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice – Dan Panosian

Every day in June I featured the work of a great artist, only instead of me picking the artist to feature, they were 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!

I ended up with more suggestions than there were days in the month, so enjoy a few BONUS installments!

The sixth and FINAL bonus installment is the pick of Mark Irwin, former Creative Services Manager at WildStorm, former Art Director at Heavy Metal Magazine, current Art Director (for the past almost nine years) at Upper Deck Entertainment and longtime inker, mostly at Marvel Comics.

Mark’s pick is Dan Panosian!
