Art For Art’s Sake #112: Art Plus Jen Bartel

by Richard Bruton

Art For Art’s Sake, all the best art from the Internet delivered to you every week – think of us as Uber Eats for your eyes… all with a final serving of Jen Bartel

We’ll begin this week with a lovely looking piece from Moritat – a Little Nemo homage from the 2014 book Dream Another Dream.

Owen Fitzgerald – Dennis – simply beautiful work from the artist who took over Dennis the Menace from Al Wiseman in the Hallden-Fawcett comic books, and assisted Hank Ketcham on the Sunday strip in the 1960s

Pascal Campion

Nicola ScottBlack Magik #16

Ms Marvel & Spider-Gwen – Chris Samnee

Mister Miracle – Valentine De Landro

Mister Miracle and Big Barda by Tom Reilly

A Minimum Wage homage by Jill Thompson

And a Bob Fingerman page from (no surprises) Minimum Wage

Two from Mike McKone

Mark Schultz – Xenoxoic Tales

Machine Man – Sandy Jarrell

Lee Weeks – Batman & Bane

Josie and her Pussycats – Gisele Lagace

Wonder Woman by Joshua Middleton

Man-Thing, Ka-Zar, Shanna, Zabu – all by Frank Brunner

And finally, Jen Bartel‘s rather lovely covers to celebrate Women’s History Month…

Bartel’s career may be pretty short, having been picked up by comic companies after her fan art online got traction back in 2017/8, but since then her trajectory has been nothing but upwards – co-creating Blackbird for Image with Sam Humphries, and winning Eisner Awards as a cover artist on Blackbird (Image) and Submerged (Vault).


And now a few extras…
