I love a lot of the "hot" artists that get put on high-profile titles and get paired with equally "hot" writers BUT I really enjoy those artists who don't necessarily get the spotlight shone on them as much.

If I was a comic writer and had enough pull to pick my own collaborators these are some of the artists who I would request to work with me on monthly on-going projects (most of them can meet a reasonable monthly schedule/deadline which is another reason I appreciate them).

They are:

Leonard Kirk - check out his outstanding work on Agents of Atlas and Bloodhound

Marcos Martin - Doctor Strange mini with BKV and DC's Breach

Scott Kolins - Flash run with Geoff Johns, Earth's Mightiest, Thor: Blood Oath, Beyond, MTU, and upcoming Omega Flight with Oeming

Tom Grummett - Thunderbolts

Paul Pelletier - Exiles

Patrick Gleason - Green Lantern Corps, Aquaman

Cliff Chiang - Human Target, recent Spectre mini

Doug Mahnke - Stormwatch PHD, JLA

I know I could count on any of the above mentioned to bring to life any stories I turned out with on a regular basis and it would look good.

I'm not a writer, and since I'm an artist I'd prefer to take the projects myself.

However, artists I think deserve higher-profile books are:

Jason Pearson.
Cory Walker.
Scott Iwahashi.
Eric Canete.
Nate Bellegarde.
Jason Alexander.
Sean Murphy.
Zach Howard.

I'd put Guy Davis in that category.
He is awesome, tho.

I love Sean Chen. I met him a couple years back at WWT and he was a real nice guy. I am excited to see him on Sensational Spiderman. His run on Wolverine is my favorite out of the entire history of the book.

Andrea Di Vito doesn't get nearly enough recognition that he should.

And Dale Keown might be one of the most under appreciated artists of all time.

chris fason meh - the first guy's a hack, but that second one should be on something Amazing Joy Buzzards-like.
