QUESTION: What lesser known artist do YOU want a commission from.....
....that might not be a household name?
I know many of us would love original art and commissions from guys like John Byrne, George Perez, Jim Lee, Joe Jusko, Mike Choi, Ron Lim, and the list goes on and on. My question is, what artist(s) out there that not everyone might know off the bat do you want a commission or even original art from?
I'm looking for guys that have been in the business nad are recognizable....but maybe not an automatic "I know that guy".
For me, there are many, but I'll start with my top 2 since one might be happening!!
1. STEVEN BUTLER
I'm going to put this as my top because I might have just gotten something going with him. Steven most recently has been involved (to my memory) in the Archie Comics company, but might be best known for his run as penciller on Silver Sable.
I've always loved his more cartoonish style in his "Lil Sylvie" strips. I just recently contacted him and am working on getting a piece I've wanted for about 18 years!
1a. Ryan Kinnaird
I love Ryan's anime influenced art. I remember him most from the Max mini series. X-Men Phoenix: Legacy of Fire
He is also well know for his work on the Image book Next Gen Warz.
One of these days, I'd love to get a commission from him. The question is what character to get done???
I would love to get any commission done by published Marvel artists seeing that in Australia we dont get a chance, i dont know a hell of a lot of artists besides the really mainstream ones but i always loved the Ghost Rider Danny Ketch series which i think is Volume 2 and i would love to get a Ghost Rider commission done by the main artist from that series!!!! I think is name is Javier or something like that
Guys......remember, this thread is geared at the artist that is not a "god of the industry". Dale Keown and Alex Ross are two of the most highly sought after artists as fr as commissions and original art go. I also would love artwork from those guys....anyone that appreciates comic art would be crazy NOT to.
I'm not asking for Albert Pujols, I'm asking for Ty Wigginton. Not Jordan...not even Pippen, I'm asking for Paxson or Kerr.
Oh....and it looks like I'll have to amend my "want list". I got a hold of Steven Butler and it looks like I'll be getting that commission I've wanted for about 17 years!! He's been awesome to talk to, I'm really looking forward to this.
Next up......Mr. Kinnaird!
