Charles P Wilson III - Astronaut Pooh

2016.07.10 Garden State Comic Fest, Morristown, NJ

This is my second sketch from Wilson. I first met him at a Wildpig Comic Con in 2010, and picked up a great sketch from the series The Stuff of Legends...

Always a fan favorite at the local show, Wilson has provided the cover art for the Garden State Comic Fest Programs...

From Comics Alliance:  This article shows his work outside of Stuff of Legends, drawings of superheroes and his blending the world of Pooh and the superhero world. Imagine a Hulk Pooh, a Captain America Pooh... well I imagined a Pooh in Space and requested such a sketch. The results is another great sketch from Wilson...

Wilson has also provided a more serious tone of art for the IDW series The Wraith, written by Joe Hill.

The FDC features the Alan Shepard stamp honoring the first American in space. Yesterday John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth passed at the age of 95. I post this cover in his honor and in honor of all men and women from all nations with the courage and spirit to travel into space to explore the universe.

Shepard and Glenn were members of the Mercury Seven, the first seven astronauts selected by the US and NASA to become astronauts. The other Astronauts include Guss Grissom, Scott Carpenter, Gordon Cooper, Wally Shirra, Deke Slayton
