Sunday Comics - Divito -

I just got back from a research trip to Las Vegas. I didn't learn much, but I had a great time. One of my favorite highlights of the trip was eating a deep-fried Twinky in historic Downtown Vegas. I really dug Downtown, it was the Vegas that Hollywood put in my head. If you're going to visit, make sure you don't miss old Vegas.


It's been a while since a Sunday Comics post. So, BOOM, you get one today.

These are both scans of Guillermo Divito originals I own. Neither feature any of the lovely ladies he's recognized for, but I think they're cool none the less (here's a great example of said ladies Oscar Grillo posted on one of his blogs). I've always loved seeing how artists grow, so the black and white drawing from 1939 is really interesting for me. He was 25 at the time, and the artistic growth he would experience in just the next 5 years is really inspiring, let alone the growth through the entirety of his career.

I hope you enjoy.

Also be sure to check out Alberto Ruiz's "Process Junkie Blog". He's been posting some real cool stuff by illustrator Jorge Ginès.

I am glad you like Vegas! I have never been to downtown Vegas. I'll have to check it out next time I go!
