Topic: Comic Book Artists
Last month I blogged about my 'joining' Anthony D Lee's... Facebook Comic Con Artist's Table during the Gala Premiere of that virtual comicon.
At the same time I signed up for a 'Free Sketch' to be drawn by Anthony as he was promoting his table at the new con.
Of course my first choice would be 'The Thing', one of the members of the Fantastic Four from Marvel Comics, if Anthony was willing to draw the character! Note: Because of the Thing's 'rocky' body, it takes additional time to draw, and here he was going to do it for free!
Well... he was, and the above sketch is one I wanted to share with everyone here again on my Blog! Especially since it is so cool looking to have in hand!
I am going to prize this as much as when I had Joe Sinnott sign my issue of Fantastic Four #95 with a full page panel of the Thing holding up a building on his back! Why did I have Joe sign that issue? Well, he once said at a panel I was atttending, that the full page panel on page 8 of that issue was his favorite inking job on the Thing over Jack Kirby's pencils!
Actually, the sketch that Anthony drew for me is just one of 21 sketches he has drawn so far for FBCC attendees that signed up at his table! It does take time to sketch these folks!
To see all the great sketches he has illustrated so far, including Spy Smasher, the Scarlet Witch, Green Lantern, Dawnstar, Wonder Woman, Dawn, Mary Jane Watson, and others... check out his table at:
You would have to be a Facebook member to see them though... but it would be worth joining FB and then Anthony's FBCC Table to get a great sketch emailed to you!PLUS here's an Update since my original posting of this blog post! Anthony was originally just sending a scan of the 'free' sketch he was drawing for those that requested them at his table. However, due to popular demand, he is now mailing the original also, IF the requester of the sketch card pays for the shipping cost! So that is an additional bonus from this great artist that is based in the UK! So ask him what it would be to ship it to you if you want the original sketch card mailed to you also! Plus check out what else Anthony is doing while you are at his FBCC artist's table!
