    I love Chris Bachalo’s work, but we should also credit the fine work of the inkers to Bachalo’s pencils, in many cases being the great Tim Townsend.

      Good point. Tim Townsend is a great inker/finisher!

    And while we’re at it, the colorists, too! ;-)

      Colorists are getting a little more credit these days, but still not enough, I agree. I’m usually just focusing on one artist for these posts, but you’ve given me some good ideas for the future! Might have to do a Jordie Bellaire appreciation, soon, or old school inkers like Terry Austin. :-))

    I’m a huge fan and so this is very exciting to see.

    I’ve been following Chris Bachalo since his very early days, and I loved seeing his progression. It might be interesting to point out that in many instances, he’s also handling the colors.
