Inspirations: John Romita Jr.

John Romita Jr is famous for his work on comic-books such as Spiderman, Daredevil and Kick-ass and other MARVEL comic-books. I don't read comics these days, but back when I did John Romita Jr was one of my favorite artists. He had this rythm and continuity in his lines and characters. It always had this kinda blocky and square feel to it, simplistic and minimalistic in one way but still very much alive. For a while I was trying to copy the way he drew characters, and I benefitted from it a great deal. Comicbooks are built on stories, but a great illustration and style makes it all the more pleasurable.
