Dredd doesn’t approve of Wiggz’ book by Colin MacNeil
A new blog has burst onto the scene showcasing some excellent sketches and mini commissions from some of 2000AD’s most popular artists. It’s the brainchild of 2000AD fan Wiggz, who decided to buy an A4 sketch book and chance his arm contacting artists for sketches by post.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive, leading to him buying more books which are currently travelling all over the world getting filled with all manner of Zarjaz creations. Wiggz has been kind enough to share these treasures with us in his new blog, which you can find at http://thecursedearth.blogspot.co.uk/
The blog features the work of artists such as John Burns, Colin Wilson, Henry Flint, Carlos Ezquerra, Tiernen Trevallion, Jesus Redondo and many, many more.
Dante and Jena by John M Burns
I asked Wiggz if there was anyone in particular he wanted to thank with regards to the book, he said “If I singled anyone out it would be wrong, all the artists have been amazing. Every artist I’ve contacted has gone above and beyond what I ever thought I’d get from them – whether its sending a book to them or arranging to meet up for a drink and a sketch.”
“I’m always amazed at what comes back and just to see what they produce is amazing! I never thought I’d ever be having conversations with the likes of John M Burns, Colin Wilson or Carlos Ezquerra! These guys are legends!”
Mongrol by Tiernen Trevallion
Wiggz continues “Theres a lot of patience involved but its more than worth it. My only regret is not starting it sooner so I could have gotten something from Ron Smith, Arthur Ranson or Cam Kennedy before they retired…
Inspector Inaba by Andy Clarke
“Theres a lot of cool things to come and some really cool sketches and ideas planned with some of the artists but I daren’t say anything in case they don’t come off!”
I’m sure you’ll agree that the blog is off to a great start. Keep checking back at http://thecursedearth.blogspot.co.uk/
