We were recently contacted by a young French artist whom goes by the mononym Klemt. His large illustrations are comprised of short lines using China ink and a traditional quill pen. His illustrations have been exhibited in Limoges, Paris, Brussels and New York.
Klemt’s artwork is the representation of his personal thoughts and questions. Starting with a statement like “Everything Will Be OK” and allowing the drawing to manifest itself. The result of that particular statement can be seen in his piece La Fille A L’Echelle.
Check out more of Klemt’s illustrations on his website.

He is also illustrating two ongoing series called The Grocery and Doggybags.
Paolo Rivera is an American comic artist working for Marvel Comics. While still in high school, Mr Rivera met Jim Krueger at Megacon whom helped him get into the industry. His skilful oil painting, due to it’s time-consuming nature, is perfect for covers which he regularly works on. However from 2006 to 2008 Mr Rivera produced richly-painted interior and exterior artwork for the six issue one-shot Mythos. Mr Rivera has since worked as a penciler, inker, and colourist. In 2011 he penciled six issues of Mark Waid’s multiple award-wining Daredevil series.
Paolo Rivera’s blog, The Self-Absorbing Man, is an absolute treat as it is filled with behind the scenes to Rivera’s creative process and artist advice. Also check out Rivera’s YouTube page which has glorious videos of inking and colouring.
