Month of Art Stars: Artist’s Choice – Dan Panosian

by  in Comic News Comment

Every day in June I featured the work of a great artist, only instead of me picking the artist to feature, they were picked by their peers, fellow professional comic book artists who are picking out artists (from the past and present) who they think deserve special attention. Do note that most artists I asked about this gave me multiple answers and I picked out one choice out of a number of suggestions, so these are not definitive answers, like “Artist X likes Artist Y and he thinks all other Artists are terrible!” Here is an archive of the artists featured so far!

I ended up with more suggestions than there were days in the month, so enjoy a few BONUS installments!

The sixth and FINAL bonus installment is the pick of Mark Irwin, former Creative Services Manager at WildStorm, former Art Director at Heavy Metal Magazine, current Art Director (for the past almost nine years) at Upper Deck Entertainment and longtime inker, mostly at Marvel Comics.

Mark’s pick is Dan Panosian!

Dan Panosian got into comics in his early 20s during the early 1990s, working for Marvel and Image Comics.






After a long break from comics for the world of commercial art, Panosian has returned with a vengeance, with some brilliant work for Marvel Comics…

Here he is on a Juggernaut story…






Here he is on a Sabretooth one-shot…





Here he is on a Skaar one-shot…






Here’s a design sheet for Snake Eyes by Panosian…


Here’s a recent Red Sonja cover…


Finally, here are samples from an upcoming book Panosian has coming out WITH Mark Irwin, called Jack Secret…

Thanks to Mark for the pick!

Thanks to all the artists involved!!
