Topic: Comic Cons
Continuing My Series On Creators that will be at the Comic Con International San Diego 2009, AND whom I think You should make a point to stop and see...
Is Leah Mangue, who will be in Artists Alley at table GG-17 for this year's SDCCI!
Leah is known as a self employed visual artist who works with colored pencils and markers. She covers a lot of art genres from fine art, comic art, to licensed work and pet portraiture.
As a licensed artist she has worked on: Lucasfilm's Star Wars 30th Anniversary, Clone Wars Movie, Indiana Jones Heritage, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, New Line Cinema's Lord of the Rings Masterpieces I & II, Heroes I & II, Indiana Jones Masterpieces, Star Wars Galaxy IV and more!
Leah sent me the following message regarding her con schedule and what she has on display for sale at the Con:
"I have an upcoming book, The White Album, which will be for sale at Comic Con. It is a collaborative effort by 13 artists who have created drawings inspired by the music of The Beatles. I, along with the other twelve, will all be present at Comic Con (at our respective tables) and will be signing/personalizing the books throughout the show. I have three pieces in the book and I now have only 40 books available.
So what is this album about? Well here is the following from a press release:
Forty-five years ago, The Beatles invaded America, bringing with them a sound and attitude different from anything any of us had seen or heard before. They challenged and inspired us, forcing us to think about how things could be if we would only realize the importance of love.
Its now 2009. Although ts been nearly forty years since The Beatles broke up, and yet their message is as relevant and influential as ever. The greatest band in history is still inspiring hope and dreams, still changing lives and fostering creativity, still shaping the way we look, listen and think.
Announcing THE WHITE ALBUM: A Collection of Images Inspired by the Music of The Beatles.
Compiled and introduced by writer and illustrator Russell Walks, and showcasing work by artists including Leah Mangue, Matt Busch, and others, THE WHITE ALBUM presents an exciting array of dynamic, emotional works of art, each of has been inspired by a song from The Beatles extensive catalogue.
THE WHITE ALBUM looks at the work of The Beatles through a kaleidoscope of artistic styles and viewpoints. THE WHITE ALBUM will be available for the very first time ever this summer at the San Diego Comic-Con (July 22 -26, 2009). Dont miss your chance to pick up a copy at the only location where every artist will be available to personalize your book.
