Every Week, Comics Alliance runs a feature called Best Art Ever (This Week). It’s chock full of whatever excellent artwork has been floating about the zeitgeist and it’s drawn (sic) from all over the place. If you haven’t checked it out, it’s a great way to broaden your horizons.
Inevitably this means that an artist like Biz will show up from time to time, and this weeks’s example is one of my favourites. It’s from Simon’s surreal, amazing run on Doom Patrol…
Thanks to The Intense Art of Simon Bisley now know the following :
1. Simon would like to wish us all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
2. HE’S GOING TO DO A FULL PAINTED 60 PAGE STORY WITH PAT MILLS FEATURING JOE PINEAPPLES. it’s for 2000AD.
I’ll get more detail from Pat and Simon in the coming weeks, but in the meantime have a wonderful festive holiday season and digest that news!
MERRY FESTIVE EVERYONE!
The excellent and talented Rufus Dayglo (Tank Girl, Solid Gold Death Mask) was with Simon at the 13Coins live painting event at Rockwell House London this past week and he’s posted some pictures of the happenings over at his blog. It looks like everyone involved had a great time!
I shared this on the Facebook page last night when it came through, so here it is in a little more detail.
Zac Thompson at Bloody Disgusting has posted a heartfelt, nay, plegm-covered open letter to DC. He’s putting crusty, congealed pen to paper to outline his wish… to keep Lobo metal.
This new image wipes away everything that’s great about the character. I couldn’t see Simon Bisley drawing this version of Lobo. This is not the badass motherfucker who’s banned from both Heaven and Hell.
Biz is on record as saying something pretty similar; the problem is, nobody seems to want metal these days. Maybe ‘Bo should play a mandolin and grow his beard longer.
I actually got pretty upset looking at this panel
but then I remembered he’s fraggin’ immortal.
It’s cool, guys.
