Golden at Baltimore/ Eva Ink and Woodcrest Participate in Harvey Awards!
Hi Ya'll--It's that time of year again. Baltimore ComiCon is happening a little later this year. Autumn is in the air--my favorite time of year, and it's time to board that train and get to the harbor and some great seafood. Crab Cakes are on the agenda.
Also for the second year in a row, I'm proud to say that my company, Eva Ink Publishing and Eva Ink Artist Group, along with our partner, Woodcrest Productions, will be donating some of our "Creator Chronicles" DVD series on industry creators as part of the gift bags for Harvey Awards attendees. There is always some cool stuff in these bags folks! It's not too late to get your tickets for the gala dinner and awards ceremony. We always have such a good time there, too. Last year I got to sit with the legendary artist Nick Cardy, and shared some wonderful conversation with this amazing man. :-)
Creator Michael Golden will also be a guest at the show all weekend, so stop by and see us. I'll be in Artist's Alley as well. At Mid-Ohio I had many of my old book I'd forgotten brought up for a signature. I'm sure I'll see some in Baltimore too.
Above, Golden scares up some spooky art for Halloween! :-)

Eva Ink and WoodCrest Productions Support Harvey Awards!
Baltimore--Fall is in the air and that can only mean one thing! It's time for the 10th Annual Baltimore ComicCon! And, just announced, joining the amazing line-up, and returning to one of his favorite shows is Co-creator of the X-men’s Rogue character, Michael Golden! Baltimore HAD to be on the agenda! And no matter if via plane, train or automobile, it should be on yours as well!
"I look forward to the gathering of pros and fans, in the great atmosphere that this show fosters, each year," says Golden, having just spent most of the last year conducting classes in sequential art storytelling worldwide, and accepting a few Guest of Honor nods along the way. "I wouldn't miss it."
Golden's pivotal and groundbreaking work can be seen in and on such books as "The 'Nam," "Micronauts," "G.I. Joe Yearbook," "Dr. Strange," “Nightwing,” “Detective,” “Heroes for Hire," "Hulk," "Spiderman," "Uncanny X-men" and “Iron Man” "Spartan X," "Bucky O'Hare," among much, much more.
Michael, no matter on which character, is indeed known for his unique art style that at various times seems detailed and at other times seems to be amazingly streamlined--cutting away the excess and maintaining the true essentials of a piece. Thus the title of his recent top-selling art book, "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden," from Vanguard Productions!
Current projects include “Manga Bucky O’Hare” from Vanguard Productions; “Michael Golden Monsters” portfolio from Eva Ink; “Heroes and Villains Sketchbook” from Eva Ink; “Modern Masters in the Studio with Michael Golden" DVD and trade from TwoMorrows; “The Creator Chronicles : Michael Golden” DVD from Woodcrest Productions, and Michael's new sketchbook "MORE Heroes and Villains," due out in the fall.
Honored with gallery shows in places as diverse as New York, Brussels, Antwerp, Gijon, Paris and Barcelona, Golden is sought after for his signature art class in storytelling, which he has conducted throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and now China. Michael has served as an Editor at DC Comics as well as Senior Art Director at Marvel Comics, and has worked on scores of movie production projects, including some currently in development. As well as design work for both Universal and Disney.
Guests joining Golden, Oct. 10-11 for Baltimore include: Brian Michael Bendis, Robert Kirkman, David Finch, Marc Silvestri, Chris Claremont, Bernie Wrightson, Frank Cho, Tim Sale, Doug Braithwaite, Matt Fraction, Stan Sakai, George Perez, Joe Kubert, J.G. Jones, Rob Liefeld, Neal Adams, J.Scott Campbell, Jimmy Cheung, Cully Hamner, Sanford Green, Barry Kitson, David Mack, Mike Manley, Mike McKone, Terry Moore, Steve Niles, Walt Simonson, Matt Wagner, and many more!
Also, don't forget the Harvey Awards on Saturday night as the industry honors some of our great talents. Eva Ink and Woodcrest Productions are happy to once again be donating DVD's from their "Creator Chronicles" series for the gift bags at the event. "This has become a tradition for us,' says Renee Witterstaetter of Eva Ink. "We are thrilled to be part of the Harvey's and what they stand for, and Baltimore has provided such a classic home for the event."
So grab that nearest car, train or plane, and get thee to the ComiCon!
