Irene Gallo photoblogged the most recent Art Out Loud event at the Society of Illustrators, where various professional artists work in public while aspiring artists watch and (later) ask questions. This was the all-comics edition, with Klaus Janson, Michael Avon Oeming, and Paolo Rivera drawing various projects – World War Hulk, Powers, and Mythos: Fantastic Four, respectively – while Chris Allo from Marvel and Mark Chiarello from DC did portfolio reviews.
Jim Bumgartner has created a large coverpop of historical science fiction covers, arranged horizontally by time and vertically by average hue. Hours of fun with bug-eyed monsters!
