NYC – Scan to Black Exhibition

s2b

Press Release:

Scan to Black is an exhibition of original published comic book art by illustrator, V. Ken Marion.

Marion is one of the hottest rising stars of the comic book industry. He has worked on a number of titles as monthly penciller on Extermination (Boom! Studios) and Fathom: The Elite mini-series (Aspen Comics). Marion is the current monthly artist for Soulfire (Aspen Comics).

Marion’s artwork is influenced by the school of Jim Lee and closely reminiscent of Michael Turner’s style. Marion is known for beautiful portraits of women and his tightly penciled pages.

The term “scan to black” in the comic industry describes the process of scanning finished pencils and then converting them digitally to black without the use of an inker. This process usually requires finished pencils to be tight, clean, and clear. The result are beautiful renditions that bring an elegance to the comic-illustration genre and reflect a recent trend in the industry.

The opening and Comic Signing event are FREE and open to the public on Sunday, March 30, 2014 from 4:00 till 6:00 pm.

Pushkin Creperie Bakery is located at 541 Myrtle Avenue near the campus of Pratt Institute (between Steuben and Emerson Sts., across from the Pratt Store).

This event is sponsored by the Brooklyn Art Review.
