Topic: Other Non Comics Works
TODAY'S 'MAIN FEATURE':
This is another "Spotlight On..." blog in a series of blogs I have posted during the last two years!
I recently became aware of Bryan Reesman's works after winning a prize by subscribing to his blog via Facebook. It was a DVD that Tina and I just viewed last weekend matter of fact! Thanks again Bryan!
So being curious, I checked further into Bryan's Facebook profile, finding that Bryan also does more than just posting blog posts on a regular basis. He actually is involved in numerous activities that I will list later on in this post.
The following text and the photos supplied for this post of mine came from his blog. I'll give you the main link to all his activities and blog at the end of this post.
The main reason I chose to pick the following blog post and the photos out of all of his activities should be apparent to those of you that have been reading my own Blog for a while! Bryan's blog post was about one of the artists that I enjoy seeing also in person, and one that just doesn't receive enough acclaim in my opinion!
Here's Bryan's post:
"One of my favorite comic book artists growing up and the greatest artist ever to draw The Incredible Hulk, Herb Trimpe has always had a signature style that dazzled me. I recently interviewed Trimpe for ADD, but beyond that the one thing I really wanted was to have my likeness sketched by him.
I did not have time while I was attending New York Comic Con this past February because I was busy on assignment.
So when the Big Apple Comic Con rolled into town last weekend, I made sure I attended and got what I craved.
Trimpe admitted that he had not sketched someone on the spot in awhile, so I felt honored that he took a shot at it. Both he and I were pleased with the result! It’s the closest I’ll get to looking like a real superhero."
Great blog post, Bryan! Thanks for sharing that AND allowing me to repost it here! BTW, Bryan's own Blog is at:
Oh, and I did say that this post is a 'Spotlight On... Bryan, right? Well...Below is a little about Bryan Reesman:
