Comics Fairplay is devoted to musings about comic-related events, as well as pop culture occurrences.
Yeah, Bryan's one of the exceptions, along with folks like Phil Jimenez and Sal Velluto. My friend Leah Adezio and I used to pick out which artists could actually draw decent packages (i.e., males as though their anatomy actually existed), and those two artists really, um, stood out for us.
Elayne, I love the fact that you and your friend did that! There were some boring Saturdays at our friend Ben's shop when his wife and I would try our hand at a similar game. Thank you for mentioning Phil and Sal. I had almost forgotten at their skills in that area!
Heh, we used to emphasize the "l"s, draw them out, like "Phillll Jimenez!" and "Sallll Velluto!" I think we even told Sal about that when we saw him at a convention. (I may have also mentioned it to Phil at another time; if so I'm sure I blushed.) Phil of course has no hang-up issues about drawing reasonable male anatomy, being gay; Sal explained that the reason he has no hang-ups about it is because he's European. :)
Elayne, I just love hearing about this! Their reasoning is fantastic!I have had the pleasure of meeting Phil twice at different conventions and would love to see him again. He is a sweet heart, and I really enjoy talking with him. Sal is someone I would love to meet at a con someday, so I will cross my fingers. Thank you for that!
