Tradd Moore broke into the comics scene with the indy series The Strange Talent of Luther Strode, and it’s sequel The Legend of Luther Strode with writer Justin Jordan. His distinct, dynamic style, and liberal use of squash & stretch with his characters has quickly propelled Tradd Moore to the top of the mainstream comics world. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2010, and jumped right into illustrating comics after that.

Today, Tradd Moore has a bonafide hit on his hands with his work on the new, revamped Ghost Rider with writer/artist Felipe Smith for Marvel Comics. He also provides cover art for other Marvel books, like Secret Avengers, and Deadpool. When he can find the time, he continues to work on independent comics like the new Image series Zero.

Sean Phillips has been working in comics for over 3 decades, creating beautifully rendered art on such titles as The Invisibles, 2000 AD, Judge Dredd, and Hellblazer. He was part of the British Invasion of Comics in the late 80’s/early 90’s along with cohorts Grant Morrison, Peter Milligan, and Neil Gaiman. His ability to create striking cover illustrations, and draw fully formed characters in a classic, cinematic style has led to a long accomplished career as an artist. He is completing his latest collaboration with “partner in crime” writer Ed Brubaker on the supernatural thriller Fatale for Image Comics. August will see the premiere of their next series together, The Fade-Out, a noir tale set in 1940’s Hollywood. This also begins a 5 year deal with Image Comics for both Sean Phillips, and Ed Brubaker to produce comics exclusively for the publisher, which is a rare occurrence in the industry. This obviously shows the extreme confidence that both creator’s work, and craftsmanship inspires to land such a contract.

Sean Phillips has contributed cover and interior art for various Criterion Collection DVDs, including On the Waterfront, and 12 Angry Men.

He’s also been nominated for 3 Eisner Awards, and has won once with Ed Brubaker for best new series Criminal.

David Mack << Illustration Friday

 

David Mack is the creator, author and artist of Kabuki, a comic book series that has earned international acclaim for its innovative storytelling, painting techniques and page design. He is also the writer and cover artist for Marvel Comics’ Daredevil.

He graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design, which included studies in Sculpture, Painting, Drawing, Art History, Photography, Typography and Bookmaking, and a minor in English. The first published Kabuki collection, Kabuki: Circle of Blood, was completed while David was in college, and the story served as his senior writing thesis. He has now completed seven collections.

I found Kabuki several years ago, when I wandered into a comic book shop looking for art-driven stories. David’s writing is just as brilliant as his illustrative abilities. He uses watercolor and mixed media collage in his unconventional page layouts and creates stunning imagery and powerful storylines.

Artist :: Gemma Correll

Post by Clio.

Gemma-Correll-Illustration-Friday1 Gemma-Correll-Illustration-Friday2 Gemma-Correll-Illustration-Friday3 Gemma-Correll-Illustration-Friday4These hilarious drawings by Gemma Correll are sure to put a smile on your face this Friday. Famed for drawing pugs and cats Gemma is a true comic genius. Her witty one liners are coupled perfectly with the little characters of her sketchbooks. And she definitely makes me want a pug (she has two real ones and tons and tons of doodled ones), especially after the release of her newest gem, a book entitled A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette.

Catch more of Gemma’s work on her website & blog.

 Artist :: Jake Wyatt << Illustration Friday

Comic books and film compliment each other really well. Jake Wyatt is an artist that does both, when he’s not illustrating something equally as awesome. He works traditionally, on bristol or vellum with paint and ink, and then adds more texture using photoshop. His short film about a girl, a fox, and public transportation is currently making the rounds online and is definitely worth checking out.

See more of his work on tumblr and blogspot , see his short film on vimeo.
