The idea is pretty simple: Repaneled is a new site dedicated to artists redrawing comic book panels. The site is curated by Anthony Vukojevich (a Canadian illustrator if I’m not mistaken) who got inspired by the Covered Blog (a blog about… artist redrawing comic book covers):
Inspired by Covered Blog, which hosts artist reimaginings of classic comic book covers, RePaneled was launched by Anthony Vukojevich in early September. Since then, the site’s hosted nearly 30 submissions from artists like Robert Goodin, Brad Campbell, James Edward Clark, Adam Koford, Aviv Itzcovitz, Kerry Callen, Camila Barboza, Marc Palm, Eric Shonborn, Jason Young, Steven Weissman, David Tosh, Ben Granoff, Blake Sims and of course Vukojevich himself.
“The idea of redoing existing comic covers in an artist’s own style was certainly not new,” said Robert Goodin, the man who brought readers the fabulous Covered blog. “Fred Hembeck has been doing it for decades, people have done them and posted them on message boards. After picking up some comics with covers that I really loved, I thought about trying to redraw one in my own style. Then I thought about how great it would be to see other artists do the same, but I wasn’t sure if I was the only one who felt that way. I mentioned the idea to Jeffrey Brown and Renee French at APE one year and they seemed into the idea. Jeffrey even mentioned that he already had some X-men covers that he had done as commissions. Once I had about 10 covers from friends, I thought it was time to fire up the blog and it took off from there.” (more over at Comic Alliance)
The above Herge panel featuring a very mad Captain Haddock from the classic Tintin in Tibet was repaneled by Filipino comic book writer, artist and publisher Gerry Alanguilan:
I have also been an inker of comics for DC, Marvel and Image, and I have worked with Leinil Francis Yu and Whilce Portacio on titles like Wolverine, X-men, X-Force, Superman, Batman, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Wetworks, Grifter, High Roads, Silent Dragon, and currently Ultimate Avengers: Crime and Punishment.
