OR – Workhorse Art Show

000-dhc-workhorse

Press Release:

Dark Horse Comics is proud to announce Work Horse: Art by the People Who Make Your Comics, an employee art exhibition at Sequential Art Gallery + Studio in Portland.

Dark Horse staff members are always working with art in some capacity, but contrary to popular belief, not all are in-house illustrators. After several discussions between employees, it was discovered that there are many talented, artistic employees in all departments who work outside of the office in mediums ranging from paint, photography, and digital art to sculpture and embroidery.

Sequential Art Gallery + Studio, which has previously shown artwork by illustrators Tyler Crook (Harrow County, Bad Blood), Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer, Dr. Horrible), and Ben Dewey (Husbands, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9), has teamed up with Dark Horse to showcase the artwork of those who produce, promote, and sell our comics. The exhibition gives Dark Horse staff the opportunity to put their own awesome work on display, including pieces by Conley Presler (Digital Art), Ethan Kimberling (Design), Rhiannon Rasmussen-Silverstein (Production), Melissa Martin (Digital Art), Rick DeLucco (Design), Kelly Woessner (Marketing), and more!

“Dark Horse is known for nurturing artistic expression in our creators and artists. I’m proud to extend Dark Horse employees the opportunity to showcase their artistic excellence in the Dark Horse art show. We don’t just make comics; we make art,” says Dark Horse publisher and president Mike Richardson.

The exhibition will run December 1–26, 2016. The opening reception is December 1, 2016, at 6 p.m. at Sequential Art Gallery + Studio, 328 NW Broadway #113, Portland, Ore.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7

11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. DARK HORSE COMICS AND WARGAMING PRESENT: THE TRADITION OF MILITARY COMIC BOOKS PAST AND PRESENT (Room 1A21)

War stories have long been a tradition in comic books. From their birth during WWII to the late 1980s with military stories like G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, they have continually evolved. War comics switched perspective to the men deep in the conflict in War Stories and the new series World of Tanks: Roll Out. Join the expert panel of war comic scribes Garth Ennis (World of Tanks: Roll Out), Larry Hama (G.I. Joe), and Ethan Young (Nanjing: The Burning City) to explore the war comics tradition.

4:15 p.m.–5:15 p.m. ASIAN AMERICAN COMICS AND CULTURE (Room 1A05)

For years, Asian comics creators have been doing incredible work furthering the medium of sequential art. With Eisner Award–winning storytelling and phenomenal artistic expression, Asian-Pacific Americans have begun a movement within the comic business. Join Greg Pak (Kingsway West), Ethan Young (Nanjing: The Burning City), and Vivek Tiwary (The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story) for a fascinating conversation on embracing Asian culture in comics, moderated by YouTube personality Shyaporn Theerakulstit.
