Crisis on Infinite Arts - Jim Lee's Nova Sketch



Ben Morse over at The Cool Kids Table has a whole sketchbook dedicated to everyone's favorite human rocket, Nova. There's plenty of cool sketches by many of the industries' top talent, but as Ben said in his blog, this "sketch" (if it can be called that, as it is incredibly detailed for a 15-minute piece) by Jim Lee is probably the crown jewel of the collection.

Jim Lee is a man that barely needs an introduction. One of the most popular artists of the late 80's and early 90's through today, his initial rose to fame came in the pages of Uncanny X-Men for Marvel. That was the beginning of a long and prosperous career that saw him leave Marvel to start his own imprint for Image Comics, called Wildstorm, that featured his creator-owned titled WildC.A.T.S. among others.

Eventually, Lee moved to an editorial position and Wildstorm expanded and started publishing a wider variety of series, and the imprint was acquired by DC. This eventually led to Lee's most recent artistic works with DC's most iconic characters such as Superman and Batman, which included a popular collaboration with Frank Miller in the pages of All-Star Batman and Robin.

You can follow Jim Lee through Twitter or in his DeviantArt page.

My favorite artist on my favorite character... I cannot begin to describe how jealous I am of Ben for this one.

Have you seen the other sketches he has? The one by Ethan Van Sciver is amazing as well.

Wow, if I didn't know better I would have totally guessed Bill Sienkiewicz! It's so un-Jim Lee! Beautiful! (Not that Jim Lee's art isn't beautiful, this just isn't his usual style.)
