Roy Crane and Jaime Hernandez

Postby Gary Chaloner on Mon Sep 06, 2010 11:00 am

Two artists you normally don't see together in one sentence, but there you go.

I'm currently reading "The Death of Speedy" (again) and loving Jaime's art and lettering.

I've also picked up the Captain Easy Sundays hard cover by Fantagraphics. Crane has always been a staple influence on me. He's just brilliant.

Got heaps of love for both writer/artists at the moment.

I think "The Death of Speedy" is my favourite of all Jamie Hernandez's work - so beautifully told and illustrated.

I've been making my way through the Love and Rockets catalogue and have finished Gilberto's Palomar books. Now I'm onto Jamie's work and whilst it started of slow I the the Death of Speedy is a couple of chapters away.

I can understand why the Hernandez brothers are held in such high regard.

Purely in terms of drawing, those guys are a couple of the masters of black and white. Another is Alex Toth.
Truly amazing!

Jaime Hernandez is my absolute top A#1 hands-down idol. I love lots of artists for various reasons, but for me he's everything I wish I was. I absolutely effing adore him.

How's that for fangirl-ism? :|>
