Pop Art: Blade
Shaun Ward, who contributed a sketch of Blade to my collection. Ward's got a really energetic style and a great sense of humor. If you browse though the art at his website you'll find a very subtle criticism of DC's on-going decision to make Robin younger and younger every time his origin is retold. My favorite might be the image of Batman defending an infant Robin in a cradle.
He's also got a creator-owned series in development that sounds incredibly fascinating (and make sure you check out his re-designs of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles here.)
Meanwhile, enjoy his take on Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight below.
