Weekly art websites: webcomics and online cartoons
Wednesday 14 July 2010
This week's selection highlights the work and websites of animators and cartoon creators making it big on the internet.
The Oatmeal - http://theoatmeal.com/
Artist and web designer Matthew Inman is the one-man team responsible for creating and drawing the viral cartoon sensations found on The Oatmeal.
Hyperbole and a Half - http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/
The internet has proved that you don't have to have a knack for complicated, detailed drawings if you want your cartoons to spread around the internet - sometimes a quirky style and good ideas are enough to get your drawings plastered everywhere on the web.
Cyanide and Happiness - http://www.explosm.net/
Explosm is home to Cyanide and Happiness, the cynical stick-figure cartoons written by Kris Wilson, Matt Melvin, Rob DenBleyker and Dave McElfatrick.
The Perry Bible Fellowship - http://pbfcomics.com
The Perry Bible Fellowship is a webcomic that is as diverse as it is entertaining. The artwork ranges from simple figures with dots for eyes to painstakingly detailed works of art.
Ctrl+Alt+Del - http://www.cad-comic.com/cad/
Ctrl+Alt+Del (also known as CAD) is a comic and animated web series that focuses on characters with a passion for video games.
Randall Munroe is the artist behind the xkcd webcomics, an online comic strip that clashes "romance, sarcasm, math, and language" with stick men (and occasionally, a beautifully drawn backdrop).
Girl Genius - http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/
Once upon a time Girl Genius was just a comic book, now the "gaslamp fantasy" has been turned into a web comic and is read by a faithful bunch of fans who can't get enough of the Victorian-style tech and clanking airships featured in the comics.
