Over the weekend, I ran into Ben Templesmith at IDW and he's been itching to challenge our Carlos D'Anda in the next one-hour sketch challenge! Ben's recently moved to the San Diego area from the land down under, where I'm told their toilets are so superior to American ones they don't even need plungers! And thanks to our recent trip there, I can definitely believe it! But enough plumbing talk, here's a little more background on this week's challenger:
"Ben Templesmith is a comic book artist/grumpy old man hailing from Perth, Australia. He's done books such as 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, FELL, WORMWOOD: GENTLEMAN CORPSE, WELCOME TO HOXFORD and the upcoming PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES. He does not eat babies. Much. Currently artist in residence for IDW Publishing."
Just to recap how these Iron Gelatomettista challenges go, everyone's welcome to post their choice for one character they'd like to see drawn in an hour by these two artists and afterwards you get to vote on the winning piece! Normally, I like to stay out of the choice of characters, but this time I'll get the ball rolling with Dr. Doom!
UPDATE @ 12/12/08, 5:05pm: Sorry to disappoint all the Warren Ellis fans out there, but FRANKENSTEIN gets the nod this time, so check back in an hour or so for the final results!
