What Do Artists Do All Day?


One of my favorite comic book artists is a man named Vincent Deighan. But most people know him by his pen name, Frank Quitely.

I don't want to get into a whole Frank Quitely love fest here... because that honestly deserves to be done right, in it's own post. But I do want to note that today is the release of Frank's first art book, 'Graphic Art: The DC Comics Art of Frank Quitely'


My copy should be arriving later today, so I can't as of yet attest to it's quality. But at 368 pages, how could it NOT be awesome?

To celebrate, here is a really wonderful short film about Frank, and comic artists in general, titled "What Do Artists Do All Day?" It's not super long, and offers a really insightful look into Frank's life.

  2. Huh. The video's not working for me. I love his work, a synthesis of Moebius and Mike Kaluta, who admittedly share sensibilities. Quite frankly, though, I have a couple friends who stubbornly insist on calling him Frank "Quietly", so that they equally stubbornly miss the play on words. Anyone else run into this?

    1. Hmmm.. I double checked, and it works for me. Maybe just Google it? It's definitely worth a watch.

  4. I just got my copy, and it's -really- nice! It's obviously only his DC stuff, so it's not a complete retrospective. But it is thick, oversized and printed on nice 100lb gloss text. The book compiles a lot of his short sequential stuff, interspersed with cover galleries.

  5. Great video, and seems like a great series. Looks like I have some hours of watching what artists do all day. I had coincidently picked up that issue of Jupiter's Legacy on the way home from Vermont this weekend, even more psyched to read it now.

  6. Really liked this video. A nice quiet look into a day. Some good shots of working and artwork. Thanks Dan.

  7. I am not familiar with Quitely's art, I will have to check his work out. The Star Wars battle aftermath piece shown as an example looks superb. But I am wondering what is the deal with the Boy Wonder crotch shot on the cover of his book?
