If you’ve ever had the good fortune of getting a convention sketch from Sweet Tooth and Essex County writer/artist Jeff Lemire, you’ve learned two things: 1) He can draw pretty much any character, from Doctor Octopus to David Bowie; 2) He goes all out on those suckers. If you haven’t gotten a Lemire sketch of your own, let this gallery of commissions Lemire drew at the Emerald City Con (courtesy of Top Shelf’s Brett Warnock) school you on what you’re missing. Pictured are Spider Jerusalem from Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan (above), Robin, Doctor Doom, Nightcrawler, the Golden Age Sandman, the Sweet Tooth cast, and even a character from Lemire’s upcoming Top Shelf graphic novel Underwater Welder. Feast your eyes, folks.
This afternoon on Twitter, the multi-talented Jill Thompson posted these gorgeous watercolor commissions of The Sandman‘s Delirium and Desire, as well as the X-Men‘s Kitty Pryde. Thompson, whose Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites hardcover collection will be released in June, is a featured guest this weekend at the inaugural C2E2.
