Reading the Internet so you don’t have to, Part 4
Dylan Teague is a U.K. artist few in the United States will have heard of. He has a great style, in a very British tradition — you’ll see the influence of artists such as Sydney Jordan, Don Lawrence or Brian Bolland in his work. Unfortunately, he’s not particularly prolific and he certainly doesn’t update his blog often enough. The sod. But he has updated it with pages scanned from his sketchbook twice in the last week.
More interesting work spotted recently at assorted artists’ blogs below.
Dave Taylor, artist of the bestselling Batman: Death by Design, has posted this commission, very much in the style of that book.
If you’re a lover of the gonzo-humor stylings of the first generation of underground comics artists, I’d recommend the book Spleenal by Nigel Auchterlounie, one of the funniest comics I’ve read in years. Lately, Auchterlounie has been posting plenty of examples of his newspaper strip The Kings of Omazing at his blog, and it too is very funny, even if also a helluva lot tamer and family-friendly than his magnum opus.
Another great cartoonist posting art that’s considerably more family-friendly than other assignments he’s been working on of late is the great Kyle Baker. He’s been previewing work from his next Image Comics series Circuit Breaker. Baker change style to some degree to suit every different project he works on, and for this one he’s channeling assorted manga and anime influences.
