  • The team over at Mondo recently posted on their blog that though Justin Ishmael has chosen to leave Mondo, they will still be at Comic-Con. Mondo creates limited edition screen printed posters. Glad that during change, it’s still business as usual.
  • Genese Davis, a gamer and author to just name a few of her many accomplishments, tweeted that she will be speaking at a one of a kind panel at San Diego Comic-Con.  With hashtags like voice actors, video games, healthcare, and film, this could be a very interesting panel indeed.

  • Bobby Rubio is a Pixar artist, as well as the creator and artist behind an upcoming independent comic called 4 Gun Conclusion he is bringing to SDCC 2015.  In the last few days, he posted three pictures on Instagram of his work in progress and explained a little about the characters.
  • Artist, Camilla d’Errico, posted a painting in progress on her Facebook page.  It is a big eyed girl with a rainbow unicorn horn.  We are always excited to see the work come together rather than just the finished product.
