    Travis Charest's Spacegirl

    I was cleaning up my bookmarks (yes, what an exciting evening) and I thought others might want to check this out. Travis Charest does a web comic on his fan site called Spacegirl. It's campy fun that is drawn beautifully.

    Is Travis Charest totally self taught?

    I know Jim Lee is....I can tell.

    In Travis's FAQ webpages it states he admires illustrators from the early 20th century. I get the feeling he's been looking at Cornwell and Leyendecker and all that. That would indicate some sort of educational push......or is that some sort of trendy thing to say?

    Would knowing if he's self taught change your perception of his work, and how can you tell if someone is self taught or not? Are there some specific lines or techniques that you are only allowed to use if you are either self-taught or not self-taught?

    Damn, looks like he stopped doing it. Really great stuff nonetheless!

    Spacegirl is such a potty mouth! Throwing around expletives like "scrad" every other panel!

    Um... I can say scrad here, right?

    saw this a while back but forgot about it. thanks for the link. great textures and lighting, and i love the looser/bolder lines and how it's a bit simpler or graphic than his other work.

    No prob guys. There are not many comic book artists that actually grow artistically over their careers. Charest's earlier work was very much like Jim Lee's. I think he's been working on a French gaphic novel for a couple of years now.

    Not to get too off topic before the forum police write me a citation but Adam Hughes is one of my favorite illustrators and one day, before I die, I want to go to one of those comic cons and totally fanboy out and drool at his table for a sketch like these. More can be found here and here.
