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.
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.
