Jason Fischer aka JFish has got his monsters on his mind and his mind on his monsters -- and he's transporting them to paper with Monstroleum: Monsters of the Dragon's Keep, a five-volume encyclopedia of sorts covering the characteristics of 55 total foes (11 per volume) that readers might encounter on a dungeon crawl. But that's not all. To expedite the process, JFish is offering three tiers of subscription preorders that will put even more mythological menaces in the hands of his fans.
We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.
Food is a persistent obsession in Jason Fischer's watercolor art. Sometimes it takes the form of delicious portraits of hot dogs and hamburgers; in other cases, they're visually playful, as with his paintings of meat Mario and vegetable Luigi. Plus, on the less foodie front, he reimagines the punishment of the titan Prometheus using creatures from the film Prometheus.
