Joe Eisma - Darth Sidious

2015.10.09 NY Comic Con, NYC

Joe Eisma is the artist co-creator of the Eisner nominated and New York Times best selling series from Image Comics - Morning Glories. The story focuses on a group of students at the Morning Glories Academy, which hides sinister and deadly secrets. The series is written by Nick Spencer...

Eisma has also worked on Hoax Hunters, Existence 3.0 and Dynamo 5 from Image comics, Higher Earth from Boom! Studios and Cobra from IDW Publishing...

After a brief discussion Eisma chose to do Star Wars related sketch.  If i had a Higher Learning or other educational related first day cover, I would have went with a character from Morning Glories. 
His Darth Sidious captures the evil expression nicely...


Outside of artist alley Jelly Belly had a booth with 2 paintings made from jelly beans - Darth Vader and Yoda, while artist Kristen Cummings was working an a Batman. I don't know how she avoids eating the jelly beans while working. Cummings uses an acrylic drawing to serve as a guide to the final product. Cummings began working for Jelly Belly producing her first works in 2010..
The above postcard was available at the Jelly Belly booth...
