Jill Thompson has a blog!

Is that what the kids are calling tumblr sites these days? Anyway, one of my favourite comics artists, Jill Thompson, has one now and it’s full of her gobsmackingly beautiful art, like this:

I’ve been a fan of Jill’s work since her stint on Grant Morrison’s Invisibles way back when, then got totally sucked into her all-ages Scary Godmother comics (which I first encountered in the old Slave Labor Action Girl anthologies, I think). Her more recent collaborations with Evan Dorkin on the heartbreakingly brilliant, insightful, sweet and beautiful all-dog-all-cat supernatural detective series Beasts of Burden reflect the above more painterly style she’s been largely working in. Gorgeous stuff. Visit her blog, buy her comics – you know the drill.

You still here?
