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.
Listen: I am a bitter old man. This is on record and there's no getting around it. And yet, if there's one thing that does my withered heart good, it's seeing kids these days getting into stuff with an incredible amount of talent and enthusiasm. Case in point: 18 year-old Meg Lovell, better known on Tumblr and Twitter as Sailor Swayze, whose incredible art mashes up Animal Crossing, pro wrestling, fighting games, magical girls, and sometimes all of that all at once.
