Brian Bolland is one of my FAVORITE comic book artists. I really enjoy his work. It is incredibly detailed, to the point of being meticulous. His characters are well proportioned, the faces have great expressions that pull you into the scene and weather his work is inks only or colored I'm hard pressed to find a Bolland piece I don't like. Although I could live without his seeming infatuation with bondage. But that's another post altogether.
Bolland is English, born in 1951, and while clearly he has a talent in art, he did attend art school. He claims to have started drawing comic book art when he was only 10 years old. He officially made it into the "main stream" when he began working regularly for DC in 1979. While known mainly for his cover art, he also has done some interiors too. The Killing Joke features his art, and is one of the most well read and sought after of all Batman stories.
His official web site can be found here. You can see just about every comic book art piece done by him here, at the Grand Comics Database.
Good stuff, hey.
