Artist Alex Maleev appears at Society of Illustrators on Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 6:00pm until 9:30pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

About Alex Maleev:
Eisner-Award-winning artist, Alex Maleev, is a comic book illustrator of Bulgarian descent best known for the Marvel Comics’ series Daredevil Vol. 2, collaborating with writer Brian Michael Bendis.

Maleev has a distinct drawing style of dark, grainy imagery, which gives his work the 16mm-camera look of old-fashioned documentary. Maleev studied under artist and teacher José Delbo.

In 2006, Maleev finished his run with Bendis in Daredevil and planned a collaboration with the writer on a new ongoing Spider-Woman series. Bendis and Maleev collaborated, once again, on the four-part “Halo: Uprising” miniseries from Marvel Comics. He first teamed with Bendis on Todd McFarlane’s “Sam and Twitch” series. In 2010, Alex returned to partner with Bendis, on “Scarlett” and The Spider-Woman Motion Comic.

Maleev also did art for the comic book The Crow: Dead Time, The Crow: Flesh & Blood, the New Avengers “Illuminati” special, the January 2007 issue of the New Avengers, issue #26 and the one shot, Civil War: The Confession.

In his comics, he sometimes references his Bulgarian origins. For example, in Aliens vs. Predator, alien eggs are stored in the cellar of a typical Bulgarian church. In Bulgaria, he is famous for Godan (Ãîäúí in Bulgarian) and Carthel of Dead, published in Riko magazine since 1991 and 1992, respectively. In 1994, he attended the Joe Kubert School.

NYC – Dare2Draw w/ Phil Jimenez

Artist Phil Jimenez appears at Society of Illustrators on Thursday, August 15, 2013 from 6:00pm until 9:30pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

About Phil Jimenez:

At an early age, Phil Jimenez learned of the world of comics through his love of Star Wars, leading him into Marvel Comics series based on the film. In addition, he was a big fan of the Super Friends and Wonder Woman TV show (soon to become a big fan of her comic version, thanks to George Perez’s post-crisis re-launch).

Attending Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts, Phil developed the skills he needed to become a comic book artist, being picked by Neal Pozner to draw a two-part Cyborg story in Showcase Œ93. A few of Phil’s more well known works are Fairest, Team Titans, Tempest, Guy Gardner: Warrior, Robin, Invisibles, New X-Men, and is very well known for his work on Wonder Woman, JLA/Titans: Technis Imperative, and his many pin-ups (notably: numerous Secret Files and Origins) and group splashes including the Justice League, Legion of Super-Heroes, and DC One-Million. Jimenez is currently at work on a creator-owned DC title for their Vertigo line called “Otherworld.”

Phil would also act as the stand-in for Tobey Maguire during the costume-designing scene in the 2002 Spider-Man feature film. But, in addition to his excellent talent for visual art, Phil is an accomplished writer as well thanks in large part to the man who not only hired him, but also taught him to write, draw, and love passionately, Neal Pozner. Unfortunately, Neal passed away in 1994 after contracting the HIV virus.
