THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #24 STORY: KIERON GILLEN ART: JAMIE MCKELVIE & MATT WILSON COVER A: JAMIE MCKELVIE & MATT WILSON COVER B: JEN BARTEL DECEMBER 7th / 32 PAGES / FC / M / $3.50 “IMPERIAL PHASE (I),” Part Two It’s January 1st. Happy New Year. For a WicDiv-ian value of happy.
If there’s one near-constant in Bartel’s work besides the use of bright colors, it’s the subject matter. Her favorite subjects are what she describes as “ladies wearing cool clothes and looking like they’d be able to kick your butt.” (Also cats.)
Hey everyone! I’m excited to share with you a bird art project: Decembird!
Justine (the other Bartels Intern and astoundingly great bird/wildlife artist–website here) and I were discussing developing a little birdy challenge for ourselves in December, since Inktober was so much fun. It morphed into the challenge you see above, and we realized other bird-inclined artists (or people who want to get better at birds!) might enjoy it, too. You can use the prompt list if you like, but the important thing is to have 31 drawings of birds by the time 2017 rolls around.
Inspired by Jake Parker’s fantastic Inktober challenge, Decembird invites you have fun making birdy art and to grow as an artist. Tag your Decembirds with #Decembird and #decembird2016 if you want to take part!
I look forward to getting better at birds with you! :)
