Paolo Rivera Should Win An Eisner For Best Comic Book Wedding Invitations

Untitled-1

Possessed with an unusually strong command of layout and a mastery of multiple illustration styles, former Daredevil artist Paolo Rivera’s work is a favorite of not just other artists but also to fans of design and drawing. The artist caters to both on his blog, which is frequently updated with fascinating process pieces that include his own reference photographs and helpful discussions of technique. We've excerpted several of these on ComicsAlliance before, but none as fun as these wedding invitations Rivera created to pay homage to his new wife April but also the great characters -- notably Tintin creator Hergé -- for whom the couple shares a great love.

Paolo Rivera Discusses His Process For Sculpting Red Sonja [Video]

Rivera Red Sonja

If you're a fan of Paolo Rivera, you probably became familiar with the Eisner Award-winning artist because of his work on Mythos, The Amazing Spider-Man or Daredevil.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – 08.16.13

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images 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, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

All of it's awesome. In honor of this year's 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman and this weekend's release of Man of Steel, we present for the second time a compilation of some of the coolest portraits of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's brilliant creation that we've highlighted in this feature over the last few years. We know it's cheating but we didn't count on going away for a month and then coming back in the middle of a big media event. All-new next week evermore.
