Well, the art is all inked and the shading and lettering is underway. But I wanted to post something else tonight - I just saw where a page of original Steve Ditko Spider-Man art sold for just under $140k. Here's the page, swiped from a Bleeding Cool news article (warning - it's huge):
I love the... Maybe "simplicity" is the wrong word. Maybe "uncomplicated" is what I'm looking for. Modern comics art (well, super-hero stuff, anyway) tends to be very cluttered and, in my mind, over-rendered. I love this good, old fashioned, cartooning. It works perfectly for the character and the stories and adds a kind of quirkiness to what would otherwise be standard superhero fare.
More of MY stuff next week, I promise - unless I can get a good discussion going on the finer points of comics art!
