Barry McGee

kurt

This is a must see show: Barry McGee at Deitch in SoHo (18 Wooster St. btw Grand and Canal). It’s running from now until August 13th. Graffitti, illustration, kinetic sculpture, sketches, video, wallpaper patterns, entire upended vans stacked on each other. Go. Across the street is one of the best tagged buildings in New York, certainly in SoHo. So you can get a double dose of street art. Why are you reading this and not on your way already.

Save Loomis

I seem to remember coming across this on the web years ago, but there is a movement to preserve the out of print drawing instruction books created by illustrator Andrew loomis. This website has the entirety of several of his books scanned in for your browsing. Some very good core-drawing skills, ala How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way.

Craig Mullins

Man. I have been a HUGE fan of Craig Mullins’ artwork since I first played Marathon, the classic FPS on my Mac back in college. He did all of the most influential cocnept art for Bungie’s games. His website is a must-see, loaded with his amazing digital paintings. I haven’t seen a whole lot of illustrators’ tutorials around recently, which I think is a shame, since they are so valuable. I found a few tutorials Craig Mullins did on the web, and they are fascinating:

Ashley Wood

141.jpgI’ve been seriously out of touch with the comics world over the past decade or so, and every once and a while I’ll stop in a comics shop to see what’s going on in the painted graphic novel world that Kent Williams / Jon J. Muth / Sienkiewicz et al helped make huge. Ashley Wood seems to be the current rockstar of late, and there’s a lot that I really, really dig on his site. Would love to see more about his process. Looks like a very cool intersection of handmade work with nice digital touches…
