Weekly Sketch Up – 03/19/10

Welcome back to the Weekly Sketch-Up.  Each week we'll gather a smattering of the best sketches posted by the best artists in comics, and post them up.




Katchoo and Francine as the White and Black Queens by Terry Moore.




Olympic Silver Surfer from Francesco Francavilla.




From Funrama by Ryan Kelly.




Green Arrow by Jock.  Submitted by @cybergrim (and I'm very jealous.)




Here's a bit of fan art from Sheli Hay, who was inspired by the description at the top of this post, and it was very simply too good not to share.


We need your help!  Throughout the week, as you see great sketches, send us the links via Twitter to @iFanboy.  We'll link your Twitter account, and the blog of the artist.


  1. This get’s my POW this week. ‘Post of the Week’ that is.

  2. That poor poor pig…

  3. Jock is magic. But I’m concerned about that falcon choking on the fruit stripe. Fruit Stripe is only for zebras!

  4. @drakedangerz: I likes my bacon fresh!

  5. Where are Ron’s sideburns?!

  6. What is Conor going to do to that Pig? O_o;

    See I like that version of Jock. Reading the Losers/Green Arrow Year One makes me think that it’s someone else drawing them. But that sketch, and his covers too, show me how talented of an artist he is. 

  7. Any new Katchoo and Francine is cause for celebration.

    Hellfire Club cosplay Katchoo and Francine is cause for a full-on parade.


  8. @Conor-Now I really want some bacon 🙁

  9. @drake: Me too…

  10. Oh Josh…when are you going to learn that your love of candy canes will ALWAYS come into conflict with your love of Falconry?

  11. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    @comicBOOKchris – I believe that’s a stick of Fruit Stripes Gum. 

  12. i NEED to own the Silver Snowboarder piece

  13. Paul Montgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    Francavilla is a new favorite artist. His Comic Twart submissions have been tippity top notch. 

  14. Ah, I was confused since the shape made it look like a candy cane. In that case…

    Oh Josh…when are you going to learn that your love of Fruit Stripes gum will ALWAYS come into conflict with your love of Falconry?

  15. Oh, and I love Terry Moore’s sketch. I love how he even gave Katchoo a hint of the infamous cameltoe from the Quitely cover.

  16. What country would Surfer represented if the Olympics were still going?

    I’m hoping for Georgia. 

  17. Props for Sheli Hay, great stuff! And might i say, Ron is looking awfully svelte, maybe sledding down the stairs is going to be the new craze in dieting?

  18. Ryan Kelly’s piece put a smile on my face. I was just at the Mall of America the other day and seeing all the people walk out of Hot Topic … well anyway. Josh the Falconer. Yeah that pretty much makes sense.

  19. That Francavilla piece is SO cool. 

  20. All just soo sooooo gorgeous and wantable…keep this post going please.

  21. That Silver Surfer/Galactus pic was AWESOME!

  22. That Ryan Kelly sketch is awesome.

  23. I want to think Josh is training that hawk to get him coffee

  24. @lantern4life – Or maybe fresh diapers.

  25. That X-Men Katchoo and Francine is hilarious. Jock’s Green Arrow means business. Serious business.

  26. I think Josh is feeding the Hawk Fruit Stripe gum

  27. seriously, i’m impressed. no jokes about conor sodomising that pig. well done everyone
