    Michael Golden and Joe Jusko Embark on Spring 2010 European Tour

    Comments Off on Michael Golden and Joe Jusko Embark on Spring 2010 European Tour

    Press Release:

    Michael Golden and Joe Jusko Headline “LEI 2010 Euro Spring Tour”!

    Paris, The Netherlands, Brussels — The Eva Ink Artist Tour for May 2010 is underway! And this year sees the bi-annual event reprising the successes of two years ago by bringing back two illustration heavy hitters for the adventure– creator Michael Golden and illustrator Joe Jusko!

    “I admire the work of both of these talents immensely,” says Renee Witterstaetter of Eva Ink Artist Group, “And I’m very happy to welcome them both back on the tour. It’s seldom that we invite the same creators back so soon, but the demand for Joe and Michael was high, both from the fans of their work in Europe, and from the store owners themselves!”

    And it’s certainly no wonder!

    Artist/writer/creator Michael Golden, co-creator of the X-men’s Rogue character, is known for his detailed pencil work on “The ‘Nam,” “Micronauts,” “G.I. Joe Yearbook,” and “Dr. Strange, ” among much more!

    Milestones in Golden’s career include the co-creation of “Bucky O’Hare,” which led to an animated series and toy line designed by Michael, “The Mirconauts,” as well as “Spartan X” with editor Renee Witterstaetter. Currently, Golden’s work can be seen with new covers on “Spiderman 1602,” “Iron Man”, “Heroes for Hire”, “X-Men,” “Demon’s Regret, ” “Mice Templar,” and many more. In addition, Vanguard Production’s extensive art book, “Excess: The Art of Michael Golden,” is on a second printing, while Creator Chronicles has also recently released a two part candid DVD on Michael and his career.

    Michael has served as an Editor at DC Comics as well as Senior Art Director at Marvel Comics, and has worked on scores of movie production projects, including some currently in development. His art has been the focus of gallery shows in places as diverse as Gijon and Barcelona, Spain, New York, Antwerp and Brussels, while his class on storytelling has been conducted from Spain to Brussels to Canada to The United States and most recently in China. He was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award in Lille, France.

    Following the successful “Heroes and Villains” sketchbook” released last year, Michael’s new hardcover art book “Michael Golden: MORE Heroes and Villains,” has just hit the stands, and his work on the Eva Ink project “Kerry and the Scary Things,” is due out in October.

    Joe Jusko is undoubtedly one of the best known Fantasy, Pin-Up and Comic Artists in the world today. His career has spanned almost 30 years, starting with the sale of his first cover for Heavy Metal Magazine in 1977 at the age of 17. Since , Joe has worked for almost every major comic book publisher, producing hundreds of images for both covers and interiors.

    In addition to his work at Marvel over the years, Joe has produced art for many other companies and characters, including DC Comics, Crusade Comics, Innovation Comics, Harris Comics, Wildstorm Comics, Top Cow Productions and Byron Preiss Visuals, to name just a few. His recent work includes miscellaneous cover paintings for ‘The Oz/Wonderland Chronicles’, ‘Vampirella’ , and Sheena, among others. The next project due out on to highlight Joe’s amazing work is “Joe Jusko: Savage Beauty,” a hardcover art book from Eva Ink Publishing.

    Jusko’s work has earned him myriad awards and honors, including two “Favorite Painter” Wizard Fan Awards, multiple trading card awards, a Golden Lion Award from the Burroughs Bibliophiles (previous recipients include Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo) and a Chesley Award nomination for best cover .

    The LEI 2010 Euro Spring Tour includes stops at:

    Paris– Diablo Blanc Comics– May 21st and May 22nd
    The Netherlands, Breda– Der Stripspecialist– May 27th
    Brussels– Utopia Comics– May 28th and May 29th
    Brussels– Ganshoren Comics Festival– May 30th

    “We look forward to seeing all of our friends at all these stops,” continued Renee, “And, hey, if you are a store in Europe and would like to be on future tour itineraries, drop me an e-mail. We love to work with new people as well, and meet fans we haven’t met yet!

    “Stories from the last two years of tours are legend, ” laughs Renee. “It will be exciting to see what this year holds.”

    Golden and Jusko will be signing and sketching at all stops, as well as offering 4 prints each exclusive to the tour, while supplies last. For more information on the stores, locations, and any commission rates, contact Renee at: evaink@aol.com
