Doug Bloodworth

Just had to share the amazing work of Doug Bloodworth as his technical skill needs to be seen to be believed! It’s fitting that a section of his work features comics as I’m currently working on my own comic themed collection. Doug chooses to feature a photo-realistic copy of a comic along with other familiar objects (also rendered in amazing lifelike detail!), resulting in a familiar scene of reading comics and enjoying a snack. His talent for photo realism is truly impressive and the way he manages to capture the complex textures of his subjects brings a real beauty to typically everyday objects. Below are two of his paintings...yeah that's right, they're not photographs!

I've actually got this issue of Superman for research on my current project.

These are only part of Doug’s impressive output so be sure to check out his Western section and Painted Buses at his website.
