Tribute Art Round-Up #16

Inktober 2017
Art by Tim McEwen
"Inktober Day 21 is Dave Sim, as I continue inking over the pencils of some of my all-time favourite comic artists... If I had to choose a single comics creator that was the single biggest influence on my own work it would surely be Dave Sim. I discovered his epic comic Cerebus at just the time I was starting to absorb material outside of the mainstream, and it stuck with a vengeance. He’s definitely my all time favourite comics creator and Cerebus is my all time favourite comic. With that in mind I approached this sketch with a little trepidation. It was an absolute ball to do though, and by the end of it I was pretty comfortable adding in a few of my own stylistic touches as opposed to what is so obviously Dave’s style. I think in the end it’s a good amalgamation. This one took me just under 30 minutes as it’s a reasonably simple sketch to begin with. I’ll be digging around for some humans that Dave’s drawn so that I can have a crack at those as well. I think that’s where there’s the most to learn for my own practice."

"I am gifting my entire cerebus trade collection to a new cerebite in Cali, so I have had the ol aardvark on the brain when drawing the past couple days... Two reasons, 1. To spread the magic 2. to get the remasters."

I enjoy seeing other artists' renditions of Cerebus. I'm really enjoying that first one James Smith did!
