    On objectifying character’s physical forms in comics

    by Jon Bogdanove originally published on facebook (images added)     It is a fact that superhero comics rely on the unrealistic idealization of physical form. The secondary sexual characteristics of all genders will always tend to be emphasized, if not always exaggerated to ridiculous proportions (both boobs and muscles). It is part of the mythic nature of the genre. We depict superhumans in a superhuman reality. Muscles, boobs, and poses that highlight them will always…Read More »

    What piece of art changed your life – The Yuan Twins?

        The Yuan Twins – We’ll keep our answer comic book oriented since that seems to be the most relevant media for this discussion. Without meaning to belittle anyone else and their work, the one item that really changed things for us was Pirate Corp$ #1 ( the second series from Slave Labor Graphics) by Evan Dorkin.Read More »

  • Scarab

    Scarab

    Notes from Richard… Scarab, from Kabuki. 9×12 Patreon reward, Copic marker and colored pencil on smooth bristol board. My general idea in approaching this was a combination of film noir and art deco for mood. I wish the detail on the wee flowers came through a little better. They were the thing that really brought the whole piece together when they were completed. Seriously – all of the color balance and harmonies just popped into…Read More »

  • The Mighty Isis

    The Mighty Isis

    Notes from Richard… An 11×14 Heroes Con 2016 commission for a Patreon patron. The background is an homage to Frank Frazetta’s Egyptian Queen, one of my favorite paintings of his. I was kind of going for an air of mystery about the scene, with lots of dark fades and earth tones. The golden colors themselves are even more muted, and I think I may take that approach more often in the future. I don’t know…Read More »

    What piece of art changed your life – Craig Hamilton?

        Craig Hamilton – When I think about what piece of art changed my life, I am overwhelmed with pondering countless Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces, Vincent Van Gogh, great American Illustrations, and so on and so on and so on… On the third day of this unanswerable query crouching in my mind, the answer was obvious when I awoke and , as I have for the past thirty years, gazed upon that painting.Read More »

    What piece of art changed your life – Mike Pascale?

    Mike Pascale – After a lot of thought, I’d have to say either FANTASTIC FOUR #1 or AVENGERS #4. Although both came out before I was born, I was fortunate (and blessed) enough to receive the later-issued “Golden Book And Record Set” for each as gifts as a tyke from my wonderful parents. Each set came with an exact reprint (minus the ads and cover price) of the comic plus a big LP “record” (a…Read More »

    Kumi Mizuno as Miss Namikawa

    Notes from Richard… The first of my 3 Heroes Con 2016  commissions. Miss Namikawa is a Xian spy from Planet X in the Japanese film classic Monster Zero (1965), and was portrayed by the talented and lovely Kumi Mizuno. I wanted to subtly indicate that there’s something more to the character than the rigid, logical impression you’re initially given of her, both in the film and in the art.  Her hair is normally shown (both by…Read More »
