Under the Tents: Symbiote Studios, Ethan Castillo, Terry Moore, Ash Evans

Did you know there are only six Mondays until Comic-Con? You did? Then you must have read our last Under the Tents for some SDCC news. This edition has even more great news from Lorelay Bové, Ethan Castillo, Symbiote Studios, and a lot more. Get your spreadsheets ready, because there are some insanely talented artists in here you won’t want to miss.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Here, there be dragons! Artist/writer/teacher Brett Bean revealed the subjects of his latest art book he plans to debut at SDCC 2019 – Dragons.

  • Disney artist Lorelay Bové is bringing some tiki magic with her to SDCC 2019. You can usually find her at Gallery Nucleus’s booth, which will be #2015 this year.

  • Artist Lisa Lopuck posted a couple works-in-progress of her original paintings she’s working on for SDCC 2019 to her Instagram feed. Her first two posts feature her painting the Man of Steel himself.

  • It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a… boy! Continuing the Superman motif in this edition of Under the Tents is artist John Romita Jr., who took to Twitter to announce his first ever SDCC exclusive for Superman: Year One, Issue #1. Find it at his booth, #4201, on the Exhibit Hall floor.

  • Local San Diego artist Erik Arreaga treated his Instagram followers to a work-in-progress video for his SDCC exclusive he’s working on this year.

  • Artist JP Denyer is also working on some portraits she plans to bring with her to SDCC this year. Here’s a look at the first four out of 12(?) she plans to bring.

  • Symbiote Studios has always made the best out of being the closest booth to the Funko booth by playing rock-paper-scissors with the Funko line and offering up some free swag. This year, as always, you can be a part of that if you volunteer to help at their SDCC booth this year. They’ll even provide you with an SDCC badge, so if you missed out on Returning and/or Open Registration, this is a perfect opportunity for you to get into the con. How can you pass up free swag and a Comic-Con badge?

  • Fourteen-year-old wunderkindt artist Ethan Castillo has a cool offer – stop by his table at SDCC and buy one of his I HATE SPIDERS or analog digital sketchbooks, and he’ll throw in a hand-drawn Spider-Man sketch in the back for you. And if you’re really nice, he may just draw Batman for you instead.

Anything we missed? Anyone you’re really excited about seeing this year? Let us know in the comments, drop us a line, or tweet us at @SD_Comic_Con.
