Indie Comic Artists You Should Know About

Comic Con kicks off this week and while the big guns are busy parading their wares in San Diego, we thought we'd shine a light on some of the seriously talented indie comic artists, illustrators, character designers, digital artists, storyboarders and background artists here on Redbubble.

Dazzamataz: Darren Lewis is a talented character and background designer and storyboard artist. He has worked on a number of well known computer games including Harry Potter, Star Wars and Doctor Who. His original work is pretty darn amazing too.

Tim VigilTim Vigil’s main graphic novel Faust (with co-creator David Quinn) was adapted by Brian Yuzna as the movie Faust: Love of the Damned (2001). The followup Faust: Book of M was nominated for the 1999 Bram Stoker Award for Best Illustrated Narrative. Make sure you check out the large previews of these works. Amazing stuff.

Nicolas Rix: All Nicolas Rix has ever wanted to do with his life is draw, draw and draw and, aside from playing Skyrim and scuba diving, that’s pretty much all he’s done since he was 5 years old. And all that practice shows. Nicolas creates beautiful characters and has some mad skills when it comes to color.

Kim Feigenbaum: Kim hails from Atlanta and is hugely inspired by fantasy literature and mythology. She likes to mix things up so many of her finished pieces contain graphite, watercolor, colored pencil and digital elements. Most of her sketches, however, are almost entirely graphite. She shares some amazing work in progress and concept sketches on her blog.
