Charest just blows me away. I wish he would put stuff out regularly. I could stare at his work all day. He's come so far from his Jim Lee-clone days.

When's the last time he put out anything, Brian? I remember some Marvel covers a few years back, but recently I don't know of anything. 

Edit: He hasn't even updated his blog on his website since 2014.

I just looked it up--

Dale Keown did nine issues of PITT at Image, then twelve more issues under his own Full Bleed Studios.  Who knew he did 21 issues?  Never saw the Full Bleed issues available anywhere.

Travis Charest moved to Europe to work on a METABARONS graphic novel, but only completed 29 pages and another artist had to be brought in to finish it.  He moved back to San Diego in 2007 and did a few covers.  Since then, he has been working on a webcomic.

I remember liking the art of Charest when he was doing Darkstars(?). But wow...is he great now. Such realism. I've had great pleasure looking up his art. So glad he was added to this thread.

There's a European feel to Charest's work now, but if he can't even complete more than 29 pages of a graphic novel after spending years on it, that's pretty pathetic no matter how detailed his art is.

And I had no idea Keown did that many issues of PITT. The distribution on those Full Bleed issues must have been terrible. Though if the issues were perpetually late that can affect how much comic shop owners order.

I really had an urge to put something up by our host. So I spent some time scanning art and let me tell you....there are soooooo many good images I could have chosen.....that I wanted to choose.

Then I remembered this image. To me this is a modern day masterpiece. For those who may not know, if you look for it, all 12 of these covers combined, has the hidden face of Darkseid. Brilliant work.
