Alex Garner





A new Wonder Women piece from Alex came out today. I'm also posting my favorite piece he's ever done: Psylocke.

This guys is really good. He captures not just the likeness but the essence of each celebrity. I don't even have to write down their names because it's easy to tell who they are. I just ordered his book from Amazon 2 days ago and it's has been shipped. Just waiting patiently for it to arrive at my doorstep. Check out his website. Very cool stuff and his blog is HUGE. I've been going through it when I get time. Lots of valuable information for artist out there.

Illustrator Witit Karpkraikaew

This guy is f ucking with our childhood... that bastige

Quote
The internet's affections for the undead and Disney Princesses are perhaps only matched by its predilection for seeing familiar characters in semi-unfamiliar situations. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, these portraits of zombie cartoon royalty by Thai illustrator Witit Karpkraikaew are so extraordinarily creepy I can only look at them in my peripheral vision.

Seriously, that Snow White is making me seriously reconsider a late breakfast. You can find more of Karpkraikaew's artwork at his Deviant Art page his penchant for bold colors and over-the-top gore brings to mind some of the zanier Thai horror movie posters of the 1980s.

I think I still prefer Campbell's rendition of Disney princesses, who actually kick-started the craze for doing all of these reinterpretations that are currently flooding the market.

I do like Campbell's princesses (particularly Tinkerbell... rowr) but I want to see them IN something, some narrative where they all interact or something.  Not just pin-ups.

I dig his Ruff Stuff sketchbooks quite a bit but I do wish we had more books coming from him, Wildsiderz and so on.

The continuation of Wildsiderz will never happen. He makes way too much bank with his prints and calendars and appearances at cons to not even bother with finishing it. I would like to see it be completed, but I'm not holding my breath. Also, Marvel has been sitting on 3 issues of of Spider-Man that he drew like 5 years ago and is waiting for him to complete his run on it before they solicit it for order. This is just a rumor, but it's been going around for quite some time and he has never denied it when asked.

I totally get that.  It's just kind of aggravating as a reader... especially because so many other artists are trying to "be" him and fall far short.  He's got this humour to his style that his copiers don't.

Another reason why I don't think we will ever see another issue is that with the majority of his fans that bought the first 2 issues when they came out....they are pretty much long gone. They have moved onto other things. If new issues came out now, I think it would tank and not sell because new readers will that know nothing about the series will be asked to go and buy back issues. He was riding the post Danger Girl wave and anything he put out was going to sell. He can't use that crutch anymore.

Probably right.  And it's a series I'd never heard of until he told me about it (we were talking caricatures and he mentioned that title-- and it's so clear who all the main cast is based on).

Natalie Portman, Jack Black, James Marsden, etc...............

At least they know who to call when they turn this into a movie. Ha. That won't happen either.

Especially given that they're all at least THRITY now (Marsden is at least 40).

They were nicely cast but I was hoping for some ironic or unusual casting, I like that sort of thing.  He was using recognizable faces (and locations, the Vasquez Rocks were in there) like it was a movie (and had a trailer which I don't like when comic books do) but it was so short-lived we really couldn't get a chance to dig on that.  I want more "cinematic" feeling comic books... especially because comics don't age like movies or TV shows, since it's art it can feel newer longer.

Don't forgot Halle Berry. She will probably want to play yet another comic book character. And the fact that she is the basis for Mirra Martin, I'd say she has the inside track. For this role, I wouldn't say age is a factor.
