Collectible Time #25: Jonathan Myers Studio Imagine8 Bilbo Baggins Print and Jessie Gutierrez Horror Comics

Two more of my Facebook friends have supplied some nifty creations for my collection, which I'm most anxious to share. 

Jonathan Myers helms Studio Imagine8, where he specializes in rendering the startling likeness of action-adventure characters, including those of Edgar Rice Burroughs, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dr. Who, Star Wars and DC/Marvel superheroes. 

Above is Bilbo Baggins: Myers' homage to actor, Martin Freeman, in what the artist calls "The Sting". As you can see, the image embodies the precise likeness of the famed hobbit's movie counterpart. Measuring a suitable 11" x 17", the print is a stylish piece for any fantasy-adventure fan to own. Classy!!!

Next up are two, horror/mystery-based comics from my buddy, Jesse Gutierrez. Gutierrez holds a vast knowledge of foreign imagi-movies, including those of Dario Argento, Mario Bava, Jess Franco and Amando de Ossorio. He also inserts voluptuous maidens into his yarns, styled after those seen in classic Euroshock and Hammer movies. This specialized, retro blend is most evident in "The Phantom of the Barrio" and "Zombie Quinceanera". I highly recommend both. 

In fact, Gutierrez' comics flow like movie storyboards, and if given the chance to get behind the camera, I do believe he'd more than hold his own with Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.

You can visit Facebook for more information on both artists, by typing their names at the source, or going to their Facebook work-based pages: in Myers' case, at Studio Imagine8, and for Gutierrez, at Bandido Studios. You'll be happy you visited. There are loads of inspiring visuals to behold from both talented men.
