if you're a regular reader of craig's blibbity-blobbity blog--and if you're not, you should be--then you prob'ly saw these canson pieces he posted a month or so ago. i'm posting them here again 'cause i just don't think i sing craig's praises enough--man, can this guy DRAW! and not just draw, craig is a well-rounded artist who knows color and composition and storytelling (and he even sculpts from time to time!) and i'm so grateful to've been lucky enough to've worked with such a talented artist.
here, i've always loved the character of ben grimm, the thing--but i especially love the sheer mass of the guy that craig conveys in his depiction of him. that is one solid, lest i say powerful thing!

and i've always loved craig's women. never sexualized, never exaggerated--unless it's called for, in a character like, say, power girl--strong, well-proportioned. and yet they do exude a very subtle sexuality that makes them even stronger. i love this zatanna piece for that reason and especially dig the perspective.

so all that blah-bitty-blah is really kind of a warm-up to congratulate craig on his cool new assignment--cool new book at marvel--Her-Oes!
aimed at marvels younger tween readers--and there seem to be more and more of them everyday!--Her-Oes features characters like wasp, she-hulk, ms, marvel, and namora as high school teenagers dealing with life and boys and acne...and, oh yeah... superpowers.

congrats, partner!
this is gonna be awesome!

you can read more about Her-Oes here...


and here are a few images that i stumbled across over the past week or so and thought i'd share. hope they catch your eye too.

two guys with one thing on their minds...

Man, that Craig Guy can draw! I've always said that the Thing is the hardest character in all of Comicdom to draw. Most people fail miserably at it. I can probably count on 1 hand the number of artists that can draw him the "correct" way, and Craig's on that list. Love it!

Congrats on the new book mang!

hell's yeah! that craig sure does some purty pictures and stuff! =)

but he sculpts too? i keep saying that guy's a machine! and he needs to be given more books to work on! glad to see marvel giving him some interesting books to work on.

I love Craig's Thing (no lewd comments, please), and that new series looks great! I'm going to look into that one. Marvel's all-ages stuff (as well as DC's Cosmic Adentured in the 8th Grade) have been some of the best comics on the shelves the past few years.

Craig's Canson drawings are the coolest things ever. I've got three of them hanging in my den.

I vote for Night Nurse as the official school nurse in Her-Oes and Todd, sometimes a banana is just a banana . . . but not THIS time.
