Alejandro Bruzzese - Space Adventure

2015.06.06  NY Special Edition, NYC

Alejandro Bruzzese's table was next to Colin Lawler, and I decided to keep working the space theme. Bruzzeses' approach was to take on the look of a comic book panel, with an astronaut fighting a couple of aliens..

Alejandro is a cartoonist, graphic designer, write and teacher. Originally from Uruguay currently residing in Brooklyn, NY

Largely self-taught, his work has been influenced by Wayne Barlow, Pete Fowler, Stanislav Szukalski, Junko Mizuno and Grant Morrison.. He has developed an illustration style which focuses on character design, dynamic movement and sparse settings.

Aljeandro's work has appeared in God Hates Astronauts, Feral NYC, Dracula: Son of the Dragon, Bartika.....

Anthony Ojeda - Frankenstein

2015.11.07 Superheroes for Hospice, Livingston, NJ

Anthony Ojeda is a student at the Kubert School. One of my joys of meeting artists trying to make their way into the industry is they have passions about what they enjoy drawing. When Ojeda mentioned he enjoyed monsters, I requested Frankenstein.  I looked over his portfolio, but still that is never an indication of the sketch I will receive. I was very impressed with Ojeda's take on Frankenstein.

Karl Kerschl - Abominable Charles Christopher

2015.06.06 NY special Event, NYC

I started reading the web-comic the Abominable Charles Christopher about 2 years ago. The comic started in 2007 following the adventures of Charles Christopher, a child like sasquatch, who's story intertwines with animals of the forest and the forest spirit in the guise of a lion...

The web-comic won the Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic in 2011.

Kerchl, currently drawing the popular Gotham Academy, has also drawn Superman, Assassin's Creed, The Flash, Teen Titans and several others...

When the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer stamps came out and the Bumble was featured as one of the stamps, my first thought was wouldn't it be great to obtain a Charles Christopher sketch on one of these covers... this was an early Christmas present...
