last artist related post.

Sean Phillips.

Yes, it seems he occasionally paints. But really, he's a comic book artist! (suprised?)
I do really love his oil work, I like the weight of his paint and the colors he chooses, the way he uses contrast.

But his comic art is what I enjoy the most (see the trend here?) His work his reminiscent of old black & white film noirs, like Blast of Silence (which he did the DVD cover for) Maltese Falcon, Touch Of Evil, things like that. I'm a big fan of his brush work, the way he uses shadow, and his handle on composition and form. The way he handles action is how a competent director would, he frames everything clearly, but each panel could be framed on your wall too.
