Combox Explosion!

Well the response to that last post was fun!

I going to list the websites of a few of the talented artists who have stopped by here lately to say hello:

Jake Parker is another artist from Flight, and draws just about everything with style. He has a particular flair for cute robots.

Eric Orchard has a nice storybook style and some great characters posted on his blog. Also there's a cool picture of his drawing board in action.

Annie Patterson has a nice site and an even nicer blog. She has a warm, charming style and gets bonus points for living in Alaska.

As for me, I'm still trying to get my internet act together. I'll be thrilled if I can get my illustration portfolio to look right on Internet Explorer. Bah. Anyway, here are a couple pieces that will go in that portfolio:

I followed a link from the Blue Boar over here. Awesome artwork!

What is the kids with Giant Eagle illustration from? I love it. It might even inspire me to give my kids a writing assignment to "tell that story" (whatever it is!)

And the picture makes me want to read the story.

Hey thanks, Mindi!

which is Sean P. Dailey-editor-of-Gilbert-Magazine's blog! Nice.

There is a story that goes along with some of the pictures you've seen here lately. I wrote it. The story also involves macaroons.

Thanks Ben! I love the new piece, and I love that you're working on a story. I think that when someone writes and illustrates thier own stuff it can be pretty magical. Thanks again for introducing me to Small Pax. I'm working on a picture of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz right now. A suprisingly cool nun.

i'm loving these latest drawings you've been posting, ben! great, great stuff.

Ben Hatke said...

Good deal, Eric! though I think sooner or later we're all going to have to stop being surprised that nuns keep ending up being cool.

Mike! You're just trying to get on the list of talented artists who have stopped by to say hello! Well, I guess I have to admit that more people should be reading cow and buffalo...

Oh wow, Ben, thank you! I'm truly honored to be among such good company.
