Another Month for Belkis
Yep, it is now September, and that means yet another page on my NovaStar Studios, Fantasy Art Calendar (featuring Belkis), you can contact James Rodriguez (who put the whole thing together) over at his site, and while you are there, ask him about his up-coming sci-fi comicbook. You can even stop by and see him at the upcoming Wizard World/Big Apple con this October.
Any way, this month’s featured artist is my good pal, Ed Traquino. In spite of his British upbringing, Ed is actually a very talented guy. He is a muchly-published graphic artist who has been allowed to remain in “The Colonies” while he toils away in near obscurity in the Bronx, hoping against hope that the INS doesn’t locate him. A superb draftsman he has the passion and enthusiasm for visual narrative, especially comics. Currently he has brought his immensely diverse background in the London comic art scene (where he contributed to several publishers) to his new position as the Production Manager for Guild Works Productions. Here in the States Ed has not only self-published, but has contributed extensively to GWP’s flagship title Psychosis! as both an artist and a letterer. For his film work he is represented by Famous Frames. You can find out more by visiting his (recently updated) website.
