It has been almost a whole month since we’ve done a Tales from the Brain Jar. This one will be a little shorter then the others. Not because I don’t love it, in fact it is one of my favorite pieces in my sketchbook. In each Tales from the Brain Jar I try to say a little bit about the character, incase you are unfamiliar with him. The star of this sketch is Jonah Hex. Who I’ve talked about here, here, here, and here. Needless to say that he is one of my favorite characters. Yes, yes I know about the movie, let's move on.
It was at the Orlando ComicCon in 2006 when I got this amazing Phil Noto piece. The convention was a tiny one and I don’t think they even had one the year after. As a retailer that sucks. As someone hunting for sketches it was fantastic. I run into Phil all the time, we used to go to the same comic shop. He is fantastically humble, I highly recommend his art book, and if you ever get a chance to check out a showing of his paintings I can not recommend it enough. And one day I’m going to get him to do a Tallulah Black sketch to go with my Jonah.
