Hey everybody! Who's going to be at Comic-Con? I'm looking forward to meeting lots of people and having a great time in San Diego. Once again, I don't have a booth this year,(but I'm looking for somebody to split a booth with next year). I'll be roaming the floor with my Much the Miller's Son T-shirt on, so if you see me, stop me and say hello!
Thomas Perkins is the Emmy-winning character designer for Ben 10. He's been around for a long time and done some high-profile work. My favorite thing he's done is The Screed Patrol, a series of sketchbook drawings that evoke whole worlds of alien adventure. There's a clear Jack Kirby influence along with inspiration from African masks, Neolithic stone carvings and Australian Aboriginal art. All with a cartoony appeal.

I wish I could color my comics like this. Check out this blog by one of the creators, a former production designer for Disney who now teaches in the Far East. There's a treasure trove of unbelievable art there!
