Artist to Watch! – Otis Frampton


Otis Frampton‘s Oddly Normal was the first webcomic that I really truly fell in love with. Even though the webcomic has long since gone the way of the Dodo, I still remember it as the work that showed me that a webcomic could be more then just a gag strip.

From that point on, Oddly Normal was written by Otis, and drawn by some other great artist. Volume Two had the art provided by Sergio Quijada. Volume Three was Illustrated by Jessica Hickman and Volume Four will be drawn by previous artist to watch Katie Cook.

Oddly Normal is not the end of Otis’s coolness. It goes on from there. Otis has provided sketch cards for a number of different trading card sets. As well as working on developing a number of other new properties of his own which he frequently previews on his website.

Otis is also one of the hosts of a podcast created by him and his buddy Marc Deering called The Words & Pictures Podcast. This podcast is one of my favorite things to listen to while I am drawing, it is both entertaining and at informational! You can also see Otis showing off his skills almost nightly on his USTREAM page as he videocasts while he works (he is drawing a cool drawing of marvel’s Warlock as I write this!) on his art.
