I first learned of Faith Erin Hicks and her beautiful comics when my friend Aaron Alexovich (creator of Serenity Rose) posted her blog entry about how to pitch a graphic novel. Not too long after that, our network exec Megan Casey sent an email around with a delightful comic Faith did for Tor.com about Avatar. I loved and it and got in touch with Faith, and asked her to post the comic on her Tumblr so I could reblog it (which you can see here).
Faith always posts really cool comics, illustrations, and fan art, and I dig all of them, especially this recent post showing her process making a sweet piece of Korra fan art. I was expecting a package from Faith with her new graphic novel in it, and when it arrived, lo and behold, the original piece of Korra art was in there too! Thanks, Faith!
I read and thoroughly enjoyed her graphic novel, Friends With Boys. Beautiful art, charming characters with spot-on expressions and fantastic posing, intriguing story. Great stuff all around, I sincerely couldn’t put it down. You can check out the first twenty pages on her website, here. Pick up a copy for yourself! And follow Faith on any social platform of your choosing. She is really generous with sharing her experience as a professional artist, for any of you aspiring to do the same. Here’s another informative blog entry from her on that subject.
Keeping ruling, Faith!
