Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice – Graham Nolan

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 Mike Collins, the longtime British artist who has done a lot of work for 2000 AD and DC Comics over the years (he just recently did some work on Marvel’s Captain Britain series). Here‘s his website.

Mike’s pick is Graham Nolan!

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!

A Month of Art Stars – Eric Wight

Every day this month I featured a current comic book art “star,” someone whose work I absolutely love.

I’m mostly going to try to keep from the biggest names as much as possible, because, really, do I need to talk more about the awesomeness of JH Williams, Frank Quitely and Darwyn Cooke? Here‘s the archive of the artists mentioned so far!

For the last artist in the Month of Art Stars, I’m going to do a bit of a bookend piece – our first artist was Frank Espinosa, who came from the world of animation, so for tonight, I’m doing another fine artist who came from the world of animation!
