Artist Showcase: A Celebration of Spring!

While there is still snow in many parts of the world, here in Texas Spring has sprung! The bluebonnets have taken over every roadside, the sun is out, and the bugs are everywhere! So in celebration of a new season, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite Spring-inspired illustrations from DeviantArt. If you’re still dealing with the cold and snow, I hope these make you a little warmer. Enjoy!

Covered Blog (Comic Covers)!

Calvin and Hobbes by Chris Hoobler

So I don’t know about you, but back in the day I collected comic books. Okay, that’s a lie, I STILL collect comic books. And no matter how many of my own characters I come up with, I love to make fanart of my favorite superheros. But nothing I have ever come up with is as cool as the awesome re-works that are showcased over at Covered, a blog run by cartoonist Robert Goodin. Artists from all over take their favorite comic covers and redesign them in their own style, and the results are pretty phenomenal. Here are a few of our favorites for your enjoyment (originals on the left, revised covers on the right).
