Colleen Doran's advice to comic book artist wannabes: [if Your] "Work Is Good: Don’t Give Up"

"First thing: Lots of people assume that the reason they can’t get hired is because publishing is some kind of closed circle. It’s really not.

Clients are always looking for new talent. Really. They are dying to hire the next JK Rowling, the next Jim Lee, the next James Patterson. Who doesn’t want another money-maker?

The truth is, almost everything that comes over the transom is not very good. "

J. J. Abrams directing next Star Wars

January 2013: Not exactly hard to predict, but Abrams has got the helm for the next Star Wars movie, the property which is now owned by Disney. (The complaints and back-handed compliments are already being rolled out in the fan world..."Abrams has the gift of imitation" seems to be the gist of the semi-supportive compliments.) Runner-up for the director slot up was apparently Ben Affleck (an intriguing choice, to say the least).

Abram's next film Star Trek Into Darkness will be coming out on May 17, 2013.

Drew Struzan being asked to come out of retirement to do new Star Wars Poster

Hand-drawn movie poster art is a bit archaic these days where photoshop and bland poster design rules the day, but Disney seems to be putting forth a solid effort at wooing old fans with news they want Drew Struzan for designing the coming Star Wars reboot.

Struzan's work covers a multitude of films (and other detritus). Struzan's official portfolio online. (Below, the Struzan "Star Wars Circus" print that is sold at his site.)
