The Artist’s Eye

Art always fascinates and interests me (not to mention at times go WTF?) Art has numerous forms, but what stands out to be the most are video games and comic books. They are really pure forms of some epic art (where ever applicable).

This is a Superman minimalist poster for the occasion of the release of Man of Steel, by my friend Joogz. Check out his other awesome work. Prints and posters are available to purchase, and also t-shirts here. I have one myself and it’s great, even wear it whenever I want to feel Super. 😀

Comics are Awesome

Image

This was too awesome not to share. (Go give the artist some a lot of love)

ImageDown the left – Spidey reads some Ultimate Spidey with Mr Fantastic looking over his shoulder, and the Torch making mischief, much to Sue’s protests. Gwen peacefully reads Shadoweyes. Hellboy, Thing and Hulk bond over Darkwing Duck, while Usagi Yojimbo relaxes with some explosions, and behind them Atomic Robo and Asterix catch Doctor Doom shoplifting.

Middle – Robin, Batgirl and Spider-Woman thrill to the exploits of the Savage Dragon. Archie, Betty and Veronica share a volume of Runaways, with Frankie making eyes at Ronnie while the Goon takes in some four colour goodness. Blue Beetle disapproves of Booster Gold colouring in the comics, while Cyclops, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, and Pheonix chill with their respective comics.

And at the right – Thorn reads the Wonderful Wizard of Oz to an enthralled Possum Kids and Bone (who has set down his copy of Moby Dick long enough to enjoy some real entertainment), Thor, Batman, Invincible, Batwoman, Nightcrawler, and a positively smitten Wolverine. Death appreciates the genius of the Muppet Show, and Ant-Man and the Wasp read over the shoulder of Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn, who are getting acquainted over the widely downloaded (and awesome) Underground, while Iron Man restocks.

Short Description – COMICS ARE AWESOME!  😉

Art Appreciation

Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?

No, not at all. Understanding the difference between one’s work and one’s views is important, which most people fail to see in multiple scenarios not limited to this. Why would I bother with what an artists does apart from his work which is the main reason I’m a fan of? There might be more aspects worth admiring, but if there aren’t, well that is simply none of my business.
