Turquoise Flag-Tip

We slept with “How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way” underneath our pillows.

We’re responsible for 41,052 of these 141,053 some YouTube views.

Needless to say, we love comics. They’re a part of who we are as illustrators here at Go Media.

Inspirations

We have a habit of collecting comic book illustrations that will inspire our own future work.

On our Pinterest board, you’ll find a whole board dedicated to these illustrations. Follow us!
