More Ways to Promote Your Work on Illustration Friday

if_thumb

Here at Illustration Friday, we have 3 main missions:

1) Encourage you to keep creating with our weekly illustration topic.

2) Inspire you by sharing as much amazing work as we can.

3) Promote your work to the world.

You may or may not have noticed that in the past week we’ve been experimenting with a new way to achieve these goals, ESPECIALLY number 3. It’s important to us to do whatever we can to help you succeed, and also to reward you for your commitment to our weekly topic.

The Pick of the Week is great because it gives us a chance to highlight one lucky artist on our front page for a whole week. But starting last week we found a new way to feature even more of our valued participants through regular blog posts like this one. The basic idea is this: throughout the week we’ll select some of our favorite submissions to feature on the blog. That way we can not only shed a little more light on a particular artist, but also share a little inspiration to the rest of the community. We’re very excited about this new idea, and we hope you are too.

So keep submitting those illustrations and there is now an even better chance that you’ll have your work put front and center for your fellow artists all over the world to see!

Happy illustrating!

– Illustration Friday Editor Thomas James

Joshua Middleton has been working in comics, book illustration, film, and animation since 1999. I first noticed his work in the critically acclaimed creator owned series Sky Between Branches back in 2002. His clean lines, and lushly painted art helped to land him a gig at Marvel, where he drew the first four issues of the mega-hit series NYX, which introduced Wolverine’s daughter, X-23. He has produced many covers, and occasionally interior art for DC Comics over the years, including this week’s special Flash variant cover for Detective Comics. He will be doing all of the artwork for two issues of Wonder Woman, coming up in April, and May.

Middleton served as a concept artist on the cult-favorite science fiction film Serenity in 2005, and was a character designer/art director on the 2009 series, Green Lantern: The Animated Series for Warner Brothers.

There’s a lot more artwork to drool over at Joshua Middleton’s website here.

Just like in professional sports, comics often recruits talent from outside the U.S. Case in point, Marvel’s “gun for hire” Gabriele Dell’Otto. The Italian native started doing work for marvel’s European division in 1998. He officially began working for the core Marvel Comics line when he was brought on to draw & paint Secret War, written by mega-popular writer Brian Michael Bendis. After that, Dell’Otto produced a bunch of covers for the Annihilation crossover, and illustrated the mini-series X-Force: Sex & Violence.

Currently, Gabriele Dell’Otto is one of Marvel’s top artists, and you can see his work on the latest issues of the Spider-Verse cross-over, and Miracleman.

Here’s a link to the Italian fan-site for Gabriele Dell’Otto, if you’d like to browse more of his great artwork.
