Over the past few years, I've been toting around themed sketchbooks to conventions to get pieces of art from some of my favorite comic book creators, based on Jack Kirby's creations and tokusatsu heroes. This summer, however, I decided to switch things up a little and go with a much broader theme, since some people are not as familiar with the past 40 years of Kamen Rider as I'd like them to be. The result: A sketchbook full of my favorite characters.
Now that I've been through HeroesCon and San Diego, I've gathered up a pretty solid bunch to start out with, and they're pretty amazing. Check below for this summer's crop of sketches from artists like Chris Burnham, Tom Fowler, Joëlle Jones, Ben Dewey and more!
I wasn't able to hit HeroesCon this past weekend in sunny Charlotte, North Carolina, but I was able to routinely refresh my social media feeds from the comfort of my own home. As always at Heroes, an assemblage of awesome artists were cutting loose with wild commissions befitting the jovial spirit of the show, but only Erica Henderson (known in part for her work on Subatomic Party Girls with Chad Bowers and CA's own Chris Sims) was genius -- or perhaps nefarious? -- enough to upload a series of farting sketches starring your favorite superheroes. Superman, Power Girl, Jubilee, Robin -- no beloved character was held sacred! You can browse Henderson's tantalizing array of tooting titans after the cut.
Theme sketchbooks? Are great. Rather than going to conventions and getting random drawings of any old thing from your favorite creators, some comics fans make theme sketchbooks, where they ask all the artists to sketch something from the same specific category...
