I thought that while I’m getting back into sketching I should say thank you to some artists that I really admire and would like to imitate. First up is Scott Johnson over at MyExtraLife.com. Scott’s artwork has always struck me as sort of Muppet-ish, and coming from me that’s a compliment. Not only is his drawing fantastic and distinctive, his sense of humor is terrific. If you dig through his enormous comic archive you will find comics that are witty, droll, or just plain weird. To seal the deal, he frequently makes fun of Mario. Scott, your work is awesome and you are one of my art heroes!
