A week of art: Rafael Grampá

I will try to post a few drawings by comic artists I like every day this week. We start with a few drawings of the excellent Rafael Grampá … Get yourself a copy of Mesmo Delivery if you haven’t, good stuff.

2000A.D. Day: Kevin O’Neill

Another one of Britain’s great talents, Kevin O’Neill got his opportunity at 2000AD.

This is a page of the short story that was adapted as Hardware:

Shok!

A cover of a typical crazy bastard in the 2000AD universe pretending he is Judge Dredd:

Liefeld is really jealous somewhere

Remember when Kevin O’Neill’s art style was considered offensive by the Comics Code Authority? Can you really blame them?

Kevin O'Neill shows us the possibilities of flesh mutation

Drokk, indeed!!!

2000A.D. Day: Brendan McCarthy & Jamie Hewlett

Rainy and cold day, so it is time to take a look back at that 2000AD box lying around the house and start the subcategory dedicated to British comics … I will try to post a few of these today so I will keep them short.

To start with, let’s take a look at some of the lesser know works of those two geniuses called Brendan McCarthy and Jamie Hewlett … This is not a random association as they a) worked on the same character, and b) worked together on a Judge Dredd strip.

Our first page comes from 2000AD PROG 480 and belongs to Sooner or Later by Peter Milligan and Brendan McCarthy:

sooner or later by Milligan and McCarthy

This next one comes from Swifty’s Return, the sequel to Sooner or Later (the page below appeared in PROG 616):

swifty's return by Milligan & Hewlett

And, what better way to finish than a collaboration between these two artists in Spok’s Mock Chocs from PROG 614:
