Meeting Artists At Comic-Con 2015

Comic-Con International is a very inspiring event for artists. The great thing about Comic-Con is that we can all get something different out of the event because we all geek out about different things. It's awesome to buy cool stuff and get lot's of pictures, but for me, the main reason I attend Comic-Con, or any other comic convention, is to meet some of the great artists I admire and maybe get some feedback from them because I'm always looking to improve my drawings and I want to learn from them as much as I can.

So big thanks to the following artists for taking the time to chat, review my portfolio, and just for being wonderful human beings that are willing to share their knowledge and insight:

Stephen Silver, Cartoonist and Character Designer. He's been a great mentor and teacher. Click here to read about my experience learning at his Silver Drawing Academy earlier this year.

Boudika Comics creators, Eva Cabrera and Claudia Aguirre. They've just released their spellbinding fantasy graphic novel, Mavi. Check it out!

Abe Lopez. Awesome dude and really fun to talk to. Check out his online store!

Juan Fernando Garcia, a very talented Graphic Artist. Check out his El Black Bat Design online store here.

Bobby Rubio, Story Artist at Pixar Animation Studios and creator of the independent comics "4 Gun Conclusion" and "Alcatraz High."

Tony Bancroft, former Disney Animator and one half of The Bancroft Brothers.
