frank quitely

i was going to be putting some comic art today but when i had a look at the artist's back catalogue it was like a caricature of the treatment of women in comics.

step up then frank quitely to sort this out. for a couple of days only you can see a really good wee documentary about him here. despite my many, many misgivings about illustrators this shows all the reasons why i want to make an illustrated work and also why the form is criminally under-rated as well as (see above) subverting itself at the same time.

if like me, you're not that up for the superhero thing then maybe check out we3. maybe not the best graphic novel i've ever read but an interesting topic an quitely's illustration really does the job
