The Dark Phoenix by Joana Afonso

Hi good people.
Here's this week's post, the Dark Phoenix, by Joana Afonso, a new addition to the FoF roster.

No need to explain the connection between the two characters, right?
Here's Joana's homage to one of my personal favorite times in comics, Claremont and Byrne's run on X-Men.

Stay tuned for more great fanart, next week!

Wolverine by André Caetano

FoF is back this week with the veteran X-Men and fan-favorite Wolverine, portrayed by André Caetano. If you know Wolverine's story, you know how the Hulk played a major role on the Ol' Canucklehead's very first appearance.

This week is equally special because we started publishing on Facebook, on FoF's very own Facebook page.

Check it out, join us and comment there as well!
See you next week.

This time, we have a contribution from another new face on Fof, Filipe Teixeira, with an energetic rendition of the Incredible Hulk, a modern version of the myth of Jekyll and Hyde.

Check it out, comment, and stay tuned for more fanart follies in coming weeks.

LoEG by Ricardo Venâncio

Time for a special entry on FoF.
Linking to the themes of Jules Verne and the Invisible Man of the last post, I chose to tackle one of my favorite comics in recent years.

As promised last week, here's a supersized piece in tribute to Alan Moore's dysfunctional classic character super team of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, end of 19th Century version.

Wilhelm Storitz by João Lemos

Well, here we are, back online again after a very long delay, with a very good reason.

The last few months have been of hard work on my first book for the French Market, La Centurie Des Convertis book II, to be published by Fauvard Editions. Check out this post on my blog for more about the book.
I'm glad to report that work is finished and that I'm slowly returning to the "real world", including FoF.

On that note, we're back with a newcomer to the challenge, João Lemos, who picked up on the Invisible Man theme and kicked it (very) old school with a rendition of Wilhelm Storitz from Jules Verne's 1910 romance Le Secret de Wilhelm Storitz.

Get ready for a special entry next week to make up for this forced vacation.
See ya!

Invisible Woman by Ana Freitas

Hi everyone.
It's time for another entry on our blog, our first by a female artist, Ana Freitas.

I don't think I need to establish the relation between Doctor Doom and the Fantastic Four's Invisible Woman, so the only thing to do is enjoy the nice image below.

See you next week.

Doctor Doom by Filipe Andrade

And we're back for another week, and another bad guy.
From "Doc" Savage, we go to "Doc" Doom, ruler of Latveria and Marvel Comics supervillain.

Doc Savage by Pedro Potier

This week's entry comes all the way from the 30s, courtesy of Pedro Potier.
"How in Heck does Bane link up to Doc Savage", I hear you ask?
This sentence on Bane's Wikipedia page did the honors:
"According to his creators, Bane was originally intended as a "dark mirror" of the highly disciplined and multi-skilled pulp hero Doc Savage."

Bane by Jorge Coelho

Back to the grind.
The latest months have been fortunately busy for the FoF contributors and myself, so the blog has been a neglected for a while.
Let's get back on track with the first artist to get into the challenge, the birthday boy Jorge Coelho.

Jorge continues the trend from the last two official posts with another DC Comics villain, Bane.
Enjoy this new entry and go say Happy Birthday to Jorge over on his blog.

Static by Ricardo Venâncio

This week's post is a special one, for a sad reason.

As reported all over the comic book world, last Monday, February 21st, Dwayne McDuffie, one of the most prolific writers for comics and animation of the last years passed away at the age of 49, a day after his birthday.
The outpouring of sadness and praise for McDuffie's work and contribution for diversity on the comic book industry has been coming across the internet, and FoF is joining the tribute to his memory with this post.

Inspired by this post over at Project:Rooftop, asking for redesigns of one of McDuffie's most notable characters, Static, I jumped on the chance to give my humble two cents to this tribute.
From March 4th, drop by Project:Rooftop and see how some talented artists pay their respects to the late writer's life and work, when the redesign site hosts McDuffie Week.

Next week, we'll get back to the regular programming.

Doomsday by Fernando Lucas

Hi everyone, sorry for the temporary silence.
Work has been demanding a lot of concentration in these last few weeks, but here's the FoF blog back on track for a new entry.

This time, we welcome another new addition to the contributing roster.
Fernando Lucas brings us Doomsday, following another DC Comics villain, Darkseid.

Besides sharing the same company, there's some backstory between this two, as explained on Doomsday's Wikipedia page.

Check back next week for a new entry!

Darkseid by Ricardo Venâncio

Keeping up with the King's theme, here's the year's last post here on Fistful of Fanart.
By me.

Happy New Year, everybody!
Here's hoping all your wishes come true in 2011.
Be happy...

... or be Darkseid's quarry!

Medusa by André Caetano

And we're almost at the end of the year.
This next to last 2010 post on FoF is brought to you by André Caetano, who got to draw another Marvel character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Medusa, Queen of the Inhumans.

In addition to the Kirby tie, Inhumans and Skrulls had also a recent "entanglement" on Secret Invasion.
That's maybe the reason for the panel on the bottom of the illustration.

Check us out at the end of the week for the last post of the year.

Super Skrull by Pedro Potier

A new post on FoF and a new artist joins the fun. Pedro Potier follows the last post with a somewhat obscure link between the Beatles... and the Skrulls.
Apparently, there's such a thing as the Skrull Beatles, a group of shapeshifting aliens disguised as the Fab Four from another dimension, intent on invading our Earth. The things you learn...

Next week, a new post. See you then!

Hellboy and John Lennon by Filipe Andrade

Post # 4 of Fistful of Fanart brings us the unlikely connection between Hellboy and John Lennon, connection which comes directly from the previous post, Rocket Raccoon, and makes for an hilarious and quirky team-up, beautifully illustrated by Filipe Andrade.

Okay, now for the tags.
Hellboy is a simple connection, due to the work HB's creator, Mike Mignola did on the Rocket Raccoon mini-series, in 1985. Lennon, however, comes from the very creation of the character, admitedly inspired by a Beatles song, Rocky Raccoon, from the White Album.

What would these two characters do if they would ever be paired together is anyone's guess. They'd probably jam, like they're doing on this illustration.
Playing Helter Skelter, perhaps...

See where our next Fanart Tag takes us in the coming weeks.

Rocket Racoon by Ricardo Tércio

Post #3 brings us Rocket Racoon, by the Freak Master General Ricardo Tércio.

This time we have a furry connection between Badgers and Racoons.
Tune in next time to see what comes out next.

The Badger by Ricardo Venâncio

Week #2 of Fistful of Fanart, and the tag falls on the word "Baron". From Baron Blood to a character created by Mike Baron, The Badger, a pretty hard to describe spoof on super-heroes. Anyone who has read it, remembers it as a pretty disturbing and sometimes funny comicbook series.
I do, and the Badger was one of those characters that I had in the back of my mind to draw one day in my life. So I threw in a small redesign on him and here it is.

As an extra bonus, the over-achiever that is Jorge Coelho sent me a close-up of his previous redesign of Baron Blood.

Check us out next week to see where the tag falls!

Welcome to Fistful of Fanart!

Welcome to a new collective art blog dedicated to those childhood heroes and villains of our youth and quirky pop characters that we always wanted to draw but didn't get to for whatever reason.
This blog has a twist though. This is Fanart Tag turf.

What is Fanart Tag, you ask?
It's a game, in the vein of a Exquisite Corpse, in which anyone who joins with a post must follow the lead of the previous contribution in any way they can think of. Instead of explaining the details, we'll let you sit there and enjoy the following fanarts showing up on this here blog.

The first one comes online in a couple of minutes, so stay tuned!
