It’s Brian Bolland’s Birthday Today!

Today sees the birthday of one of the most influential cover artists of the last few decades. Renowned for his art on books like 2000AD and The Killing Joke, Bolland’s approach to art, composition and design have had a massive knock-on effect for comics as a whole. I mean, just look at this:

Pretty perfect, I’d say. You can find Bolland online at his blog over here, although that appears to be the extent of his online presence. I’m not sure what you can buy to support him – the majority of his work was done for-hire rather than creator-owned. So instead, I’d just say, go ENJOY SOME BRIAN BOLLAND ART TODAY, everyone!
