MARVEL PORTFOLIO REVIEW:

Marvel Entertainment, Inc., one of the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment companies with a library of over 5,000 proprietary characters, will be reviewing portfolios of artists, inkers, and colorists for potential future work at the House of Ideas. All creators interested in having their portfolio reviewed should bring copies of their artwork (no originals) to Long Beach Comic Con Meeting Room D by 6 pm on Friday, 10/2.

After reviewing all samples at the end of the day, we will display a list of creators in Meeting Room D Saturday morning, October 3rd that includes the names and corresponding times of those people we are interested in meeting with, along with a schedule of times to meet.

Pencilers should be prepared to drop off at least 5 pages of sequential art as well as examples of cover illustrations. Inkers’ portfolio samples should contain examples of their work over at least three different pencilers. Colorists should provide samples that effectively display their different techniques and coloring abilities on various types of pieces. Samples will not be returned.

Depending upon your area of expertise, you should be prepared to leave behind the following at Meeting Room D for pre-screening review:

Pencilers: At least 5 pages of sequential art as well as examples of cover illustrations

Inkers: Samples of your work over at least three different pencilers

Colorists: Samples that effectively display your different techniques and coloring abilities on various types of pieces
