Spiff Up Your Shelves With Chris Schweizer’s Papercraft ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Playset

Sherlock Holmes papercraft by Chris Schweizer

Yesterday was the Twelfth Day of Christmas, which means the holiday season has officially come to an end. Sad to say, but you should have taken down all your decorations now --- and, should you be lucky enough to have a True Love in your life, figure out what to do with all these birds, drummers, pipers and maids a-milking. And if you printed out and built Chris Schweizer's elaborate papercraft Nativity scene, that can leave a hole your bookshelf.

But don't fret! Your home decor doesn't have to be Schweizer-free for long. He's cooked up another papercraft playset based on Sherlock Holmes, for year-round deductive fun.

Chris Schweizer’s Papercraft Nativity Scene Is The Perfect, Extremely Complicated Addition To Your Christmas

Nativity Scene by Chris Schweizer

Along with the Christmas tree and strings of lights, the nativity scene is one of the classic Christmas decorations, but to be honest, they can be a little boring. I myself have tried to spice things up in the past by removing the usual figures and replacing them with GI Joes and Lego Batman pieces, but it's just not the same, which is why I'm glad that cartoonist Chris Schweizer has stepped up to save Christmas with his amazing papercraft Nativity Scene.

Mixed Nuts: Creators Pay Tribute To Charles Schulz With Unique ‘Peanuts’ Anthology

Peanuts Tribute cover

From October 1950, when the very first installments of Peanuts was published, every single installment of the strip was drawn by Charles M. Schulz's own hand, and the only variations in the style of the characters' depictions came organically through the evolution of Schulz's own drawing style. Even when the characters have appeared outside their home strip, in various animated specials or in the Dell or Boom comic books, the animators and artists have closely aped Schulz's style.

That's what makes Boom Studios' new Peanuts: A Tribute to Charles M. Schulz so compelling. It's difficult to imagine what any other artist's version of the iconic characters might look like, but this book is full of them, and being faced with these characters divorced from their creator's designs is fascinating and at times even disconcerting. It's hard to look at the realistic image of Charlie Brown by Ryan Sook on the cover of the book, staring into the eyes of the "real" Charlie Brown, and not be a little freaked out, isn't it?

Best Art Ever (This Week): Star-Lord, Cornetto Trilogy, Robin Williams, Lupin III And More

Untitled-1

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.

The Tokusatsu Sketchbook: Spring 2014

Green Power Ranger by Buster Moody

If you've been reading ComicsAlliance for a while, you may already know that for the past few years, I've been working on filling up a sketchbook themed around Jack Kirby, but after three years and over fifty sketches, I thought it was finally time to retire it and move on to something else. That's why this year, I started up a new sketchbook themed around another influential comics creator: Shotaro Ishinomori, the original creator of Kamen Rider and the Super Sentai series that have spun off to 40 years of tokusatsu shows by other creators.

With Emerald City behind us, there are a dozen sketches in the book, which means it's time to start sharing. Check below for Power Rangers and Kamen Riders from artists like Chuck BB, Erica Henderson, Derek Charm and more!

The Complete Jack Kirby Character Sketchbook (Summer 2013)

Untitled-1

 

For the past few years, I've been taking a sketchbook to conventions across the country and getting pieces of art with a single theme: Characters created or co-created by the King of Comics, Jack Kirby. After 52 sketches, you'd think I'd be running out of characters, but with only a couple repeats, it's still going strong. Today, in honor of Kirby's 96th birthday, I'm putting all the sketches in one place to show some of the best artists working in comics celebrating Kirby's lasting legacy as a creator!

There are a lot of reasons why comic book conventions are great. Boxes of cheap back issues and the chance to chat with your favorite creators (or, if your standards are a bit lower, your third-favorite comic book critic) are great, but some of the real highlights come from the stuff...
