Best Art Ever (This Week): Deadwood, Maleficent, Game of Thrones, Samurai Jack, Nausicaa 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.

Jim Mahfood & Lisa Hanawalt Create Work For Audi’s Crowd-Sourced Live Art Experience [Video]

Untitled-1

 

"Uncompromised" is the theme Audi has attached to its new A3 vehicle. Sure, it's the kind of lofty, poetic thing you'd expect a luxury car manufacturer to say about its latest model, but when it comes to expressing that theme in appropriately uncompromising ways, you have to hand it to Audi, who put on quite the show last week in an event that gathered eclectic talents from all around the creative arts for an interactive, live art installation fueled by crowd-sourced stories of perseverance, hard work and success.

As part of the event, comic book artists and illustrators Jim Mahfood (Everybody Loves Tank Girl, D.I.S.CO. Destroyer) and Lisa Hanawalt (My Dumb Dirty Eyes) were on hand to interpret tweets submitted with the hashtag #paidmydues into original pieces of art -- live and on site. Fans of both artists would agree their work reflects a truly uncompromising vision of personal expression, and it was cool to see such wildly different talents represent comics and the illustrative arts alongside similarly idiosyncratic luminaries from across the creative spectrum.

Jim Mahfood & Joe Casey’s ‘D.I.S.C.O. Destroyer’ Animation Is Sexy, Funky, Insane [Video]

Untitled-2

With a name as audacious as D.I.S.CO. Destroyer you've really got to deliver the kind of insanity and style conjured up by that combination of letters. Rest assured that cartoonist and illustrator Jim Mahfood, comics and animation writer Joe Casey and film producer Scott Mosier have turned in something that lives up the title, a beautifully designed, senses-assaulting animated project for MTV"s revival of the great Liquid Television about a hot-rodding rocker and his race against Heaven and Hell for the fate of mankind.

Martin And Mahfood’s ‘Everybody Loves Tank Girl’: Beautiful Art, Narrative Dissonance

tankgirltrade-1363286054

Everybody Loves Tank Girl is the new Tank Girl book collecting the recent issues drawn by Jim Mahfood and written by Tank Girl co-creator Alan C. Martin. Before getting into things too thoroughly, let's briefly unpack the term "the new Tank Girl," because that's quickly becoming not just a distinction referring to the passage of time, but a term that now encompasses some wholesale shifts in what the character means and how she's been used by Martin the last 10 to 20 years. When first we met Tank Girl ba
