Topic: Comic Cons
I've just become Facebook Friends with William Brent, who invited me to stop by his table at the upcoming 2010 Wonder Con in San Francisco...
He told me the following:
"I will be at Wonder Con next weekend at artists alley table AA57, displaying some of my newest art & selling prints of old & new illustrations."
I asked him what publications he would have at his table, as I saw a little of what he had in the above two published photos from the 2009 Wonder Con. He said:
"No publications, but do still sell some of my Rock posters. I have a Max Rebo Band poster I did for Lucas that I always bring to the comic shows. I think that's behind me in my photos."
So I asked him a little about his background and what he was was doing now. His reply:
"In the late 80's till around 2001, I worked for Bill Graham's Winterland Productions, designing posters, shirts, all manner of rock & roll & movie merchandising. I've done concept art & storyboarding for CGI animation projects, as well as texture mapping. A lot of different things. Right now I'm designing pin-up girls for Las Vegas Hotels & Casinos."
I then saw this brief bio on his Facebook Wall also:
"I grew up in Los Angeles & started drawaing & painting at about 11 years old. Spent my early school days being a jock. Then came Rock & Roll High school."
"I've been doing R&R Posters,T-shirts, album covers, & CGI animation work for about 25 years now."
Thanks William for the quick replies to my questions!
