There are a lot of great comic book art blogs out there, beyond the deviantart pages of the world, and if you’re a comic book fan, these are webpages that you should be checking out on a daily basis. All this week, I’m going to highlight a few that I think are worthy of your attention or are just pages for some of my favorite artists.
Today, we look at a collective webpage, Comic Twart. Comic Twart was started in early 2010 and features work by nearly 20 different artists, who generally tackle a theme each week and show their different takes on that week’s theme. The artists involved include Mike Hawthorne, Chris Samnee, Mitch Breitweiser, Tom Fowler, and Dave Johnson. The theme is generally a specific character, but it could be a more general concept. Recent themes have included Giant Monsters, Power Girl, The Flash, and Space Ghost.
What I like most about this particular site is looking at the way each artist tackles the theme of that week. Every artist has their own style and it’s always interesting to see a different take on a given character that I may not have seen before. The great thing about sites like this and pretty much every site that I am highlighting this week, is that it is like having your own personal sketchbook that gets a new image in it every day, and you don’t have to go to a convention or wait in line or come up with a theme yourself.
The site is currently on a hiatus until September due to the artists being too busy with actual paying work, but you can go back in their archives and see a host of different images. There will definitely be something that you enjoy, regardless of where your tastes lie.
