How to make this amazing DIY Pantone Advent Calendar in under 5 minutes - find all the details here.
"As long as you’ve got the right supplies, this advent calendar literally takes 5 minutes to make. And it will totally get you like ten billion points in the design department. The best part about this ridiculously simple holiday hack is that you could do something similar with any pack of postcards. You could go with a collection of Vintage DC Comics, beautiful Patterns, or the cheeky Kittens of Boxville. The possibilities are endless!”
one of the biggest pieces i worked on for Sideshow because this was our very first Statue for DC Comics after we got the contract (the joker one was a spec piece that was started way before i started with the company)
Here’s a Print I worked on with Fabian Schlaga. This is one of the truest Collaborations I’ve had on a piece ever, in which i started the sketch, then it bounced to Fabian who painted everything roughly, then i worked on the figure, and then he added the final touches.
You can also see some of the concept sketches I did for the piece from the very roughest of stages to final concept that was given to the sculptor.
And here’s some of the work that went into the batman piece. as you can see, i wanted a giant cape. but alas, production and physics problems or whatnot.
the true challenge for this piece, as well as the superman one, was to try to land on an iconic pose for the character. the general idea being that if this was the *one* batman product that sideshow would put out, what should that be.

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
