Sketch Charlotte Announcements

Fresh from the desk of artist Brandon Padgett, the Sketch Charlotte Newsletter has two great stories of local talent making their mark on the comics scene.

1) Jason Latour lands penciling duties on upcoming B.P.R.D. mini-series from Dark Horse!

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: The Pickens County Horror - As the world goes to hell, a backwoods vampire clan shelters themselves in their Gothic southern home, covered in fog and fungal horror, ready to create havoc for a trespassing B.P.R.D. crew. Writers:Mike Mignola & Scott Allie; Artist:Jason Latour; Colorist:Dave Stewart

Now appearing in January 2012 Previews (pp34-35). #1 hits stands on March 28, 2012

2) Eric "Jedidad" McConnell's first pro gig!

Eric McConnell will be sending in his first professional work to Rittenhouse Archives for an upcoming Marvel trading card set (Marvel Greatest Heroes)! Check out Eric's work at http://jedidad.deviantart.com

Also, the great folks at Sketch Charlotte made an anthology book last year. Some copies were produced for Free Comic Book Day, others to hand out/sell at shows and shops. The group recently made a move that should help them create more anthologies and other materials in the future! Here is the newsletter announcement:

Sketch Charlotte's venture into eCommerce!

We're opening up a Big Cartel account for Sketch Charlotte and will be including the Regular Anthology as well as a sketched cover version. Other items will be added as they come available. The idea is to use these funds to pay for additional printing of the current and any future Anthologies. Any extra money will be made available as needed for additional Sketch Charlotte related events and projects.
