NEWS FLASH! Dare2Draw at NYCC, October 6-9, 2016
With an exclusive first look at the NEW Dare2Draw Mentoring Anthology printed series (Artist Alley Booth - M 9)
The Dare2Draw Mentoring Anthony: Plan B
We would like to thank you all for supporting this Dare2Draw Kickstarter campaign and this great, unique concept in mentoring the next generation of sequential artists.
Thank you for helping us bring the campaign to this point—you helped us beta test the mechanism required to be able to create such a groundbreaking mentoring series. This is just the beginning of the journey towards publishing the 1st volume.
1) We now have a structure in place to work with mentoring professionals, art schools, students and up-and-coming artists, as well as the process of getting the word out, with the help of press.
2) We’re currently in talks with publishers to print Volume 1 of the Mentoring Anthology Series: Nexus—and starting to work on Volume #2: Will Eisner's The Spirit.
It was heartwarming and wonderful to see the amount of attention to detail and professionalism that all the artists and mentors contributed, creating and collaborating on the material for this 80-page color celebration of Nexus.
Thank you to The Kubert School and all the wonderful staff and students.
The Mentors: Steve Rude, Mike Baron, Adam Kubert, Andy Kubert, Brendan H. Wright, Amy Chu, Ron Marz, Corinna Bechko, Eric M. Esquivel, Alex de Campi, Teel James Glenn, and Jason Sterr; professional colorists Tom Zuiko, Paul Mounts, Marissa Louise, and Mildred Louis; letterer Dezi Sienty.
The Artists: Lynne Yoshii, Rory Smith, Earl Womack, Cecilia Liang, Idan Knafo, Elisa Féliz, Elliot Fernandez, Yifeng Jiang, Mike Harris, Han-Yuan, Yu, a.k.a. B.c.N.y, Erik Klaus, Yosam Cardenas, Anthony Ojeda, Jaime Botero, Bane Wade, Kenly Dillard, Kendal Gates, CJ Oeschele.
And a special thanks to Dark Horse Comics and Jaynelle Rude.
