Happy Flash Friday everyone! Today I’m doing something that I’ve never done on the site before; I’m merging two of the regularly occurring features together. Today Flash Friday meets up with Tales from the Brain Jar! TftBJ runs about once a month on That F’ing Monkey and shows off the sketches in my brain jar themed sketchbook. Obviously Flash Friday runs Flash related topics every Friday.
The featured sketch today was done by Art Baltazar at FX back in 2008. As you can see it is of Kid Flash and Brain Flash racing neck and no-neck. In some sketches I ask for something very specific, but on this one I handed my book to art and just asked him to come up with something involving Kid Flash. As you can see it is magic. If you’ve never checked out the Eisner award winning Tiny Titans you owe it to yourself to read it. Charming and funny, I know more then one Titans fan who prefers the Tiny version over anything other Titans in recent years.
This is the second Art Baltazar sketch in the Brain Jar book, my second page was a sketch of Patrick the WolfBoy which I talked about last August here. In case you’re wondering about the style of the sketch, Art and Franco do con sketches a little different then most artists. Instead of only doing a few super detailed sketches, they churn out tons of marker and crayon doodles on comic backboards. They are of course, super popular.
That’s it for this week. If you see Art and Franco at a con, get yourself an awesome sketch and give them an “aww yeah man” for me.
