This message is to update you on the status of our 2016 SDCC Sponsored Artist selection process.
To say that narrowing the field has been challenging would be an understatement, but we are happy to announce that we have selected our Top Ten finalists!
We are also proud to announce that we have enlisted the assistance of professional artist and art instructor Dan Cooney to advise us in this final stage of the selection process.
Dan is the creator of the crime fiction comic book series VALENTINE, THE ATOMIC YETI, and the forthcoming graphic novel THE TOMMY GUN DOLLS, as well as the artist and author of the instructional books WRITING AND ILLUSTRATING THE GRAPHIC NOVEL and THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO FIGURE DRAWING FOR COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS by BARRON'S. Dan is also an instructor for the Academy of Art University.
We know what we like, but Dan will provide a unique, professional perspective from the “other side” of the drawing board, and we look forward to his feedback.
Stay tuned for another update soon, and thank you for your continued interest and support!
