I have this piece hung in my lounge and I just wanted to say thanks to Justin for the pleasure it gives me on a daily basis. Everyone that comes round has a good stare at it, usually followed by a "... cool!"
Regarding your style, dude. Don't be changing any gears for anyone other than yourself (or clients!) any time soon. Really digging your work.
Approved by the Devil himself.
PS Didnt notice Q logo for a week or two. Doh!

The Queens "font" was actually hand done to resemble the old Marvel Conan comic books.

talk about a master of design, illustration and composition...
Eisner's got it ALL
BTW- great piece Justin. I just might have to get this to hang in the studio since all of us working on our new barbarian book are HUGE Buscema fans...

MaximumFluorideSend MaximumFluoride a message :   Chloe, I believe that all of those books have fundamentals that we are better off knowing. Even if that stuff doesnt fit your style it's still good info to have. Just because you don't draw Marvel style and probably never will doesn't mean that there isn't something in that book that could be of use to you. Inking techniques, perspective drawing, etc. I don't expect i will ever do Chantry style design work but I KNOW there is information in his book I can use. How can more information and learning be bad? There are lots of other books that should be required as well..I just happened to add PrestonBlair and Chantry to the discussion.
I do not believe that hand drawn type is always better. I just don't. I think thats narrow. I (remember this is just my opinion) think the artist/designer should use whatever style and method needed to handle a project. Sometimes a computer typeface does that. Sometimes hand rendered type does that. I try to stay open to any ideas that solve my current situation.
I think the more open you are in general the more successful you are apt to be. Maybe I'm wrong. I have been before.

philaarts.comSend a message :   any book you can get something out of it to help you and also to understand theory... you dont HAVE to emulate something just because its in a book. having said that, i might not want to be a nazi but reading books on hitler were very interesting... i think for an artist to read up on other techs and theories is important in the long run... its exposing you to something that you didnt know the day before... how can that be bad...

seripopSend seripop a message :   i think everyone, whether primarily designer or illustrator should hone thier other skills but we all have diffent backgrounds and goals in our art. while some guys on here do killer marvel inspired stuff i could NEVER see myself drawing something like that. EVERYONE however could benefit from some sign painting/hand lettering/ calligraphy books. tnothing compliments a great illustration/desing work like hand rendered lettering.   2002-11-29 11:47:48

Platinum RichSend Platinum Rich a message :   i'm kind of with seri. i know max flo means but i found his comment about preston blair and marvel books pretty funny. first of all there are much better books than those. but i think mike's point was that designers could benefit from illustration books just as illustrators could benefit from design books.   2002-11-29 10:44:23

HamptonSend Hampton a message :   I like burgers too, served with a sunny smile. It's all about customer satisfaction.
Thanks alot to the positive feedback on this one, I had a blast with it. This is a tribute poster to the greatest Conan comic artist ever, who passed on earlier this year. The caption at the bottom reads: "In ode to the late, great John Buscema (1927-2002), the "Michael Angelo" of comic books will be missed but not forgotten. He was a huge influence on me with "How to draw comics the Marvel way" and his decades of amazing work. I had the pleasure of meeting him last year, just months before he died. It was one of the coolest moments in my pro career to have him check out my portfolio and "wow" page after page. I was high on that for weeks, being recognized by one of my biggest hero's made everything worthwhile.

been through it myself. Hampton should do what makes him hppy and the nimrods should go back to flipping burgers.

JephSend Jeph a message :   You don't just switch styles like shoes, it's a process of evolving gradually and trying new things. And also I happen to think this is one of Justin's best posters. I would hardly call it "predictable", I think it's great when you can see a piece of artwork by a particular artist and know it's his/hers. There's nothing wrong with having a definative atyle.   2002-11-28 16:43:11

I really like the arms reaching in from outside the frame. Plus comic books are cool.
