    C. BRADFORD GORBY added to Show!
    Make sure you stop by and check out his amazing art

    Illustrator C. Bradford Gorby started his art career in the third grade, selling watercolors to his neighbors – until his parents made him return the money. Not deterred by this setback, he kept drawing and actually found his parents quite encouraging in his artistic pursuits, introducing
    him to the pin-up art of Alberto Vargas .Eventually his enthusiasm for
    drawing pretty girls lured him to Central Florida, giving up his day job in computer graphics for Post Production Services in Cincinnati, Ohio. He spent 10 years illustrating FEMFORCE for Bill Black’s AC Comics, as well as slipping in a few other companies when time allowed, Image Comics, Todd McFarlane Productions, DC Comics and continued his work as a sculptor for Miniature Wargaming that he began in 1982 with Ral Partha Ent., Tag Industries, and Alderac Entertainment. He retired from art as a profession for 10 years and got a “real job” which only fueled his artistic drive, “at the end of my shift I would return home and create”. I am simply driven to draw, paint, sculpt, whether I am working professionally or not. It’s what I do. His full time job managing a liquor store lead to a chance meeting of a fan of his comic book work and that turned into a new job at Walt Disney World, where he spent 5 years as a Theme Produc-tion Specialist. He assisted in the creation of the character icons at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, as well as helping ensure that Cinderella and Princess Aurora always looked their loveliest outside of The World of Disney Store at Downtown Disney. Currently he is a self- employed freelance artist at C.Bradford Gorby Studio and working on a graphic novel with writers Michael Cucka and John Salimbene entitled WEBB.

    First time at The D.C.&C.S.
      Like most people that have a love and desire for artistic creation, Austin started drawing at age 7. For over 19 years I have been working in comics on high profile projects in very small doses! I have had the pleasure of inking on books like Iron Man with Bob Layton for Marvel, X-Men Unlimited, 10th Muse/Shi, 10th Muse 800, God Wars and Judo Girl for Alias Comics/Bluewater Productions, Ink Assists on: Tomb Raider & Necromancer for Top Cow, Lettering work on John Carpenter’s Aslyum for StormKing, Witch Girls and Witch Girls Tales for Magna Comix, Illustrated sketch cards for Vamperilla, Red Sonja, The Avengers & Iron Man 3, Wizards of the Coast’s GI Joe, and illustrated a Donald Trump story for Cracked Magazine! I have also done my own projects like 7th Millennium, TAN, Stanley the Snowman and his exciting new project Divine Retribution.

    Shock Pop Comiccon welcomes wrestling legends Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Diamond Dallas Page

    Jake thrilled fans for decades, coming to the ring with his snake Damien hidden away in a sack held over his shoulder, only to be let loose and placed across his unwilling opponents. During his time in the WWE, he crossed paths and had memorable feuds with all of the top stars, Andre The Giant, Rick Rude, Ricky the Dragon Steamboat, Ultimate Warrior, Earthquake, Honky Tonk Man, and many more. Sometimes good, often bad, he always warned you “never trust a snake”.

    Jake the Snake will be joined by Diamond Dallas Page, 3 time WCW Heavyweight Champion, two time United States Champion, four time WCW Tag Team Champion, one time WCW TV Champion, one time WWF European Champion, and one time WWF World Tag Team Champion. DDP is most known for his time in WCW, and his brief time in the WWF, now WWE. DDP had notable feuds with Macho Man, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Goldberg, and Undertaker, amongst many other matches throughout his entire wrestling career. 

    DDP also crossed over to film, his most popular role to date being Billy Ray Snapper in Rob Zombie’s Devils Rejects, alongside show guest Danny Trejo as the “Unholy Two”. DDP is also the innovator of DDP yoga, a fitness program that has changed the lives of many people for the better, and can be found at http://ddpyoga.com/

    SF – Katsuya Terada Signing

    kt-camPress Release:

    The Cartoon Art Museum hosts legendary manga artist Katsuya Terada on Saturday, December 6, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. This special event takes place in the Cartoon Art Museum’s galleries and is included with general museum admission. Terada will be demonstrating his drawing technique, sketching for fans, signing books, and discussing his art with museum patrons.

    In addition to his manga and illustration artwork, Terada is a prolific character designer, and his art has appeared in American publications ranging from Iron Man and Hellboy to Nintendo Power and the animated film Blood: The Last Vampire.

    About Katsuya Terada

    Katsuya Terada is probably best known in the US as the character-designer for the animated film Blood: The Last Vampire. He has also done work related to American comics, such as Iron Man and Hellboy. He also made contributed to several issues of Nintendo Power, including a special edition Strategy Guide for Dragon Warrior. In Japan, he has done the promotional illustrations for Detective Saburo Jinguji mystery-adventure video game series.

    Terada was in charge of the book cover and illustrations for the Kimaira series written by Baku Yumemakura, and was in charge of cover design and illustrations for Garouden, Shin Majugari, and Yamigarishi as well.

    Terada has defined himself as a “rakugaki” artist, more of a philosophy than a style of drawing, in which one draws a little everywhere, all the time, without thinking too much, on notebooks etc. He is a very prolific artist; one of his collections of sketches numbers more than 1000 pages, appropriately called Rakuga King.

    He has done very little group-drawn work (an exception being the manga Saiyukiden Daienou (Monkey King), his principal activities being illustration and character design. His use of CG tools is integrated very well in his illustrations, giving his work a vivid and rich appearance. He has admitted various influences on his work, particularly European ones, like Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Moebius) and the magazine Métal Hurlant. The author lives in Tokyo, Japan.
