DC Comics Guide to Creating Comics: Inside the Art of Visual Storytelling

This past Oct. my art was part of Carl Potts important book "The DC Comics Guide to Creating Comics: Inside the Art of Visual Storytelling." Published by Watson-Guptill October 8, 2013.

In chapter twelve "Watching the Pros Work", Whilce Portacio, Bill Reinhold (me), and Phil Jimenez were asked to illustrate the same three page Batman story giving the reader a look at the different approaches. Each artist detailed their process for telling the story with notes, layouts, their finished page. Carl also made additional comments to each. Gallery>

Time-elapsed art demonstrations by comic book artists Jill Thompson (Magic Trixie), Bill Reinhold (Batman), and Doug Klauba (Phantom).
•This is a short film directed by Alex Ross and featuring the characters of the Marvel series EARTH-X.

In early 2012 I did extensive on screen art BOOMSTICK FILMS Horror/Comedy DOCTOR SPINE! Written and directed by John Wesley Norton. DOCTOR SPINE stars Michael Wexler, Larry Thomas, Joe Estevez, Reggie Bannister, Jen Schmidt, Kris Desautels, Cyn Dulay, Renee Domenz, Xango Henry, Judy Tenuta, Lisa Loring and many others.
I've uploaded much the art I did for the film both in the black and white inked original version and the final digital color I did for each piece. All together in a DOCTOR SPINE GALLERY

One of my very favorite (if not favorite) comic and newspaper strip artists is FrankRobbins!
Frank Robbins' work on his newspaper strip creation "Johnny Hazard", and comic book characters Batman, and the Shadow continue to amaze me.
I wanted to make it easier to share with others a lot of his art so I put together a gallery of pieces gathered on the net, etc. through the years. This gallery is made up of art that he penciled and inked from the 1940's to the 70's.…
If you already love Robbins take a look and if you don't know it PLEASE take a look! Enjoy!
