Over the past couple of months we have seen artist Phil Winslade take on some unique projects.
After his own Spam Man project, here we see him in the running for a Kick Starter project by Dana MoresheadBACON the COMIC BOOK.
WHAT THEY WANT TO DO: Make a comic book starring Bacon packed with action, adventure, fun, funny and talking Bacon.
WHAT YOU GET TO DO: You help pick the artist! Three talented professionals are on deck to draw Bacon, so you pledge to vote for your favorite.
Ty Templeton. Popular Canadian artist and writer who first received attention for Stig's Inferno and Critters. He has continually created major publishers including Marvel, DC, IDW and Bongo. Ty's work on Batman Adventures earned him an Eisner Award nomination for "Best Cover Artist" and allowed him to take home a Joe Shuster Award for "Outstanding Writer." He's is an Instructor at the Toronto Cartoonists Workshop.
Scott Koblish. Scott has pencilled and inked hundreds of comics for Marvel, DC, Platinum and Disney. His most recognized work has included runs on the Avengers, Captain America, The Jet Pack Pets, Hulk, Marvel Adventures Super-Heroes, O.M.A.C, Punisher, Thor and the Weapon. He is a creative dynamo.
