Artist Iain McCaig Appears at Planet Comicon 2019


Press Release:

Planet Comicon Kansas City is excited to welcome Iain McCaig to our 20th anniversary event. Iain is an award winning motion picture artist with notable involvement in Star Wars Episodes I, II, III and VII, Terminator II, Dracula, Peter Pan, and Harry Potter.

Iain’s energies are given to his love of storytelling in print and in film. Attending school in Glasgow, he came back to the US and worked on the trailer for Twice Upon a Time, before deciding that 2000 book covers would be better than twenty minutes of screen time for the same number of drawings. A noted illustrator/cover artist as well as film designer and director in his own right, his career and projects have had him travelling the globe, and keep him in demand for appearances as much as for work. A popular teacher, his enthusiasm for his art and his approachability and ease with audiences has left a wake of enthused and eager fans wherever he goes. His film directing debut, The Face, has won four awards.

SPECIAL RATES: We’re offering a very special discount offer to all teachers, librarians, active duty military and first responders (fire, police, EMTs): 10% OFF ALL PLANETCOMICON PASSES AND MEMBERSHIPS! For additional info, visit our online ticket page and click on “Discounted Membership” beneath “Event Information” on the left side of the page.
