The Comic Book Guide for the Artist-Writer-Letterer by Nick Cuti

I go to Diversions of the Groovy Kind allot- so should you. Why? Because you discover obscure digital finds like the one below the fold in the handy pdf viewer.  The Comic Book Guide for the Artist-Writer-Letterer, a pamphlet comic format book on making comics published by Charlton Comics in 1974 was for kids of the early 70’s the only way to get down with how pros made comic art. Predating How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by 4 years, TCBCFTAWL concisely made clear all the basic techniques for the amateur artist. Thanks to Cartoon Snap! Blog for making the PDF download. Read on your ipad or desktop or print it out and learn.

O.P.’s SKETCHBLOG: “JAZZY” Jeff Heermann

Jeff Heermann is an old internet comic- illustration buddy; his work never fails to astound. A man who is caught in the raptourous grip of 4-color nostalgia, Roman Noir and reverence to such comics/illustration luminaries as Ditko, Krigstein, Aparo, Jerry Robinson and Commander Mark. A slave to his 4-color fantasies; yet a trailblazer with the fusion of tradition ink and pen and the digital. We salute you JEFF HEERMANN- now gimme my sawbuck!

Today in our first installment of OTHER PEOPLE’S SKETCHBLOG; the sketchblog that answers the burning question, “Oh Flameape, what are your favorite artists pals and what are they drawing lately?”; I offer you this nugget of INTENSE, PULSEPOUNDING GENIUS!!!
