Colleen Coover pencilled and Steve Lieber inked and watercolored this sketchcard of B. D. Belgique, the long-suffering police officer eternally foiled by BANDETTE. (They’re from the comics series of the same name illustrated by Coover and written by Paul Tobin.)
From the artist that’s currently working on Hawkeye #7! He is pretty much the best ever.

I dare you to find a better book introduction anywhere.
These have been released by Marvel for Comic Book Resources so I guess it’s okay to post them here. These are some pages of my art from Hawkeye #7, written by Matt Fraction, drawn by me. (In the comic they’ll be colored by the great Matt Hollingsworth.)
There are two stories in the issue. The other is drawn by my studiomate Jesse Hamm.
I’ve got a protip for my friends who tend to clutter up their drawings. Some of you do this out of a sense that more is more, or because your work-ethic tells you you should fill up as much space as possible in every panel.
Here’s what you should do: Don’t think of white space as an negative area you need to fill; think of it as a positive design element that takes effort to deploy. Do the work it takes to put well-designed white space into your drawings.
(Apologies for using my own work in “how-to-do-it-right” context. It was handy. The white in the doorway in the first panel in this page of line-art from Alabaster: Wolves #2 works pretty well. I wish I’d used more white to spotlight that creepy crucifix in panel 3.)
New Bandette story on @Comixology coming 9/19? I had to celebrate that with a sketch. And here it is- an ink and wash tribute to my favorite new comic out there. (If you haven’t read it yet, that’s Bandette herself, and Inspector B.D. Belgique.)
Bandette is created by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. You can read a preview of the new issue at Comic Book Resources.
And for the collectors out there, the original of this piece might still be available at Periscope Studio’s Etsy store.
