OOSA at Asbury Park Comic Con

Asbury Park

The Asbury Park Comic Con is this weekend (April, 12-13) and I’ll be there along with Toby Cypress and Andrew MacLean. They’ll have books, prints and art. I’ll have art from Greg Ruth, Paul Maybury and Nathan Fox, too. Plus maybe an extra little special something from Nathan. Come by our booth at C-352 and say “Hey”.

And the newest OOSA artist is…

Chris Visions!

profile picI’m so happy to finally be able to announce this since I’ve been sitting on it for a while. It’s been especially hard since Chris Visions has been getting a lot of attention recently for his upcoming series Dead Letters with Chris Sebela from Boom! Studios. And all of that attention is much deserved because he’s an amazing, versatile artist. If you haven’t heard of him yet, don’t worry, you will. He was recently chosen from hundreds of artists to be part of a small group to do some promotional art for NBC’s series Hannibal, so there’s that.

Chris’ inky, energetic style is a great compliment to the current artists in the OOSA collective, and his illustrative style gives him a unique voice. I’m excited to have him on board, as are the rest of the OOSA crew. Be sure to check out Chris’ profile to see some of his work if you aren’t already familiar with it. You can also follow him on Instagram and Tumblr to see what he’s up to, as well.

Glad to have you as part of the team, Chris!
