Was browsing /vr/ when I noticed the cover to Blackthorne was drawn by Jim Lee.
Let's get a thread going for comic artist's work outside comics.
Bumping with examples off the top of my head. I remember buying this paperback a few years ago, with cover art by Mignola
McFarlane did a lot of art for Korn and even directed a music video for them
Morrison and Quitley collaborated with Robbie Williams on this album
Jack Kirby's concept art for the fake Lord of Light movie, of Argo fame. Colourized by Heavy Metal. Link shows some more.
I wonder if Kirby got paid for this
Will Eisner's gun care and safety manuals from WW2
Entire manual can be found at

Does it count that the artist ended up doing more vidya than comics after a while?
Moebius did concept artwork for Panzer Dragoon.
Kirby also designed costumes for an adaptation of Julius Caesar
Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac) directed a music video for Mindless Self Indulgence's "Shut Me Up."
1990s Deathlok artist Denys Cowan did the album cover art for GZA/Genius's Liquid Swords.
There are some others in the series, my favourites being Cho doing White Noise and Dan Clowes doing Frankenstein
Leinil Francis Yu did concept art for a few vehicles in the Serenity movie, like pic related.
also, one of the memiest books' memiest cover was made by Frankie 'Whores' Miller
Brendan McCarthy did Mad Max 2's designs, and they look even better on paper than on movie
Legendary DC horror comics/Warren Publishing/Heavy Metal artist Alex Niño was a pre-production/visual development artist for Disney's Mulan (see pic). He also worked as a visual development artist for Disney's Atlantis and did character design for the 1980s Visionaries cartoon.
You can see more of his Mulan pre-production/concept art at the following links:
Lee, the Dodsons and Johnson redesigned the General Mills monsters
There's also the longstanding rumor that Ralph Bakshi wanted to get Niño as the primary concept artist for Wizards, but Niño had trouble getting an American work visa so Bakshi ended up withdrawing the job offer. (Bakshi ended up ripping off a lot of the film's designs from a Vaughn Bodē strip instead... Bodē sued Bakshi for credit, IIRC, and they settled the matter out-of-court.)
Kirby did the storyboards for the 1970s Fantastic Four animated series (the crappy one that replaced the Human Torch with H.E.R.B.I.E. the Robot).
Iron Fist: The Living Weapon and Spider-Man: Reign artist/writer Kaare Andrews has directed two feature-length indie horror films, 2010's Altitude, and last year's Cabin Fever: Patient Zero.
Afua Richardson (artist on the Image Comics/Top Cow miniseries Genius) is also a professional bassist and singer-songwriter. Below is a link to a video of one of her songs:
Some of Niño's work for Warren Publishing has been reprinted in Dark Horse's Eerie and Creepy Archives hardcovers, although for my money, I think some of his best work for Warren (and in general) was to be found in the more adult-oriented 1984 and 1994 magazines. Assuming Dark Horse has the rights to the Warren back-catalogue (outside of Vampirella), maybe the company will also publish 1984/1994 Archive hardcovers at some point in the near future if there is enough of a demand for the material.
I have a copy of the Dancehall Crashers live album, Adrian Tomine did the cover art for it.
Former Wildstorn Studios artist Aron Wiesenfeld (he drew the original Team 7 series, and he received an Eisner for his work on the Deathblow/Wolverine crossover miniseries) eventually left comics to become an acclaimed fine arts painter.
David Gibbons collaborated with Charles Cecil on the wonderful adventure game Beneath a Steel Sky.
Steve Skroce did storyboards and designs for The Matrix
Peark Jam's Do The Evolution animated music video was co-directed by Todd McFarlane
Pacific Rim poster by Metal Gear Solid artist, Yoji Shinkawa
Before going to Rap, Eminem wanted to work on the comic book industry.
Pic related is a drawing of his.
Simon Bisley did some limited movie-posters
and the box-art for the videogame Weaponlord
/co/ I need your help. Who did all these snes box art? Many for Konami US: Castlevania IV, Contra 3, Sunset Riders, Axelay and some TMNT games like Turtles in Times, Radical Rescue, The Manhattan Missions, TMNT The Arcade Game, TMNT: Hyperstone Heist.
That doesn't really fit the concept of this thread. Shinkawa's career is being a mecha designer not doing art just for MGS so that Pacific Rim poster is just another part of his main work. He also did the design for Godzilla in Final Wars.
Neal Adams did the artwork and insert comics for some Star Trek story records
