Watchers

One of the most influential and flat out amazing artists to ever grace comics, has passed away. Darwyn Cooke had a style that enamoured nearly every age and individual. His ability to act, write, and direct the page was magical.

Even before I knew his name, his work had affected me as an artist. Working on Batman TAS, Superman TAS, and animating the title for Batman Beyond. Shows that are in my very DNA, the building blocks for my own style and approach.

Later in College I stumbled across Parker and later his Justice League run. I was in awe of his work. His draftsmanship was unbelievable, every image carefully planned and executed flawlessly. Since then whenever I have been stuck, or can't find an approach. I'll open up New Frontier or Parker for inspiration.

I wish I had met him but I'm forever grateful for his continued inspiration. The comic industry and the art community has lost a Titan. You will be missed Darwyn, thank you.

Isn't as handsome as this caricature portrays. Beware of loose interpretation.
