Heroes + Villains
Comic Book Weekend
Comic Book Fans, Amateur Artists and Pros are gathering June 7-9 at BINDERS Art Store in Buckhead and taking on the challenge of transforming pencil sketches to a full color 24 page comic book.
In one weekend, participating artists, writers, inkers, pencilers and colorists will share their skills and work together. Open to Amateurs and Professionals, the goal is to gain experience in developing a comic book including character development, page timing, plot lines and character dialogue.
Guidance in the comic book creative process will be led by Top ATL Comic Book Artists: Dawud Anyabwile (www.BROTHERMANcomics.com), Joseph Wheeler III (www.OnyxCon.com), Del Hewitt Jr (http://delhewittjr.deviantart.com) and Afua Richardson (www.afuarichardson.info). Each one anwww.BROTHERMANcomics.com), Joseph Wheeler III (www.OnyxCon.com), Del Hewitt Jr (http://delhewittjr.deviantart.com) and Afua Richardson (www.afuarichardson.info). Each one an accomplished professional in their own right, they will be on hand to share their knowledge through the weekend.
The event is the brainchild of Daniel Flores aka DTM (www.deltatangomike.com). The idea for the comic book weekend came from a childhood desire to one-day draw comic books for a living, in the style of Stan Lee, Frank Miller and Simon Bisley. His favorite character is BatMan and the Punisher because they are regular humans who display extreme dedication and discipline in following their passion.
DTM’s career includes tattoos, acrylics, pencils and vector illustration but never had a chance to work on his comic book ideas. Until now.
Heroes + Villains is sponsored by BINDERS Art Supply & Frames Store (www.bindersart.com), The Hype (www.hypepotamus.com) and its organized by Art Is King (www.artisking.org) as part of The Black Book Conversations (www.tbbcatl.com) Artist Mentor series.
Registration is $25
