Site Recommendation: Go Comics

There's a cool site where you can read comic strips, from Garfield to Dick Tracy: it's GoComics.com. I started checking out the comic strips on that site awhile back. I like to read Garfield, Peanuts, and Dick Tracy on there. They've got lots of comic strips. The biggest, or at least some of the biggest comic strip series are on that site. I recommend checking it out.

DC TV Sketches

"DC TV Sketches"
These are some sketches I did of characters from the different DC Comics-based shows on TV right now. The top one is a redraw of The CW's the Flash from my artwork titled "The Flash/Arrow Sketches." To the right is John Constantine from NBC's Constantine. Below him is the Arrow from The CW's Arrow. The guy shown from the back walking away is Jim Gordon from Fox's Gotham. In case you're wondering about the little greenish scribble at the bottom, someone apparently scribbled in my sketchbook with a colored pencil at the store before my sister bought it for me for Valentine's Day last year. I thought I'd just leave it be for this artwork. But anyway, the DC Comics-based TV Shows are looking good. Constantine's future has been uncertain, but hopefully it will stay on the air. Over all, DC's future on TV looks bright.

Radiomaru

Bryan Lee O'Malley has created some of my favorite comics. He created the six-book series of Scott Pilgrim. Those are some of the best non-superhero comics I've ever read. They're funny and wild. Bryan has a site at Radiomaru.com. I recommend checking it out. There's some cool stuff on there. By the way, his latest work is a graphic novel titled Seconds. I haven't read it yet, but considering how much I like the Scott Pilgrim books, I'm extremely optimistic about Seconds.

Book Reviews And Things

I did a book review of Modern Cartooning for Christopher Hart awhile back. I'm thinking about doing more book reviews/recommendations, in the near future. I might also post things like videos from artists on You Tube. There are some cool videos on there of artists drawing. Sometimes the videos are sped up because it takes quite awhile to do the drawings. I may try to do more blogging in the new year, and those are some of the things I have in mind.

Brad Meltzer

"Brad Meltzer"
I thought about giving this blog entry a title like "Brad Meltzer's Cartoon Portrait by an Artist." His H2 shows' titles start with "Brad Meltzer's." I drew this last night while watching a marathon of Brad Meltzer's Lost History on H2. I digitally colored it in a paint shop program earlier tonight. Brad Meltzer is not only a TV show host, but also an author. He writes novels, children's books, and he's done writing in comics. One of his best known comic works is Identity Crisis from DC Comics.

Happy New Year!

It's 2015! A New Year's resolution of mine is to make more art. I plan to draw everyday. I didn't draw as much as I felt like I should have in 2014, so I'm going to work on that this year. I look forward to seeing what kind of artworks I make in 2015. Happy New Year!
