Gronk Creator's Version of Ramone
We now continue with the promised postings from the Summit City Con which I attended a few weeks ago. One of the highlights of the show was meeting Katie Cook - artist, illustrator, cartoonist, nerd. Katie has worked on some major projects (Star Wars, Fraggle Rock, Star Wars Kids, Marvel cards, etc.), and her own projects including the recent Gronk online comic are equally impressive. She is totally approachable, encouraging and friendly. This was really helpful on the panel where Katie discussed online comics, and especially welcome at her table as she gave suggestions on art, painting, etc. All the while, she painted and drew a non-stop supply of custom art cards to fulfill the requests for a line of waiting fans.
Katie's Gronk comic doesn't need my promotion, it's already a success with a growing fan-base, but I'm going to promote it anyway. Check out www.Gronkcomic.com for an absolutely great Web comic. And see Katie's site, Katiecandraw.com for her blog and updates of projects and illustrations she's working on.
I purchased a couple of mini-card paintings from Katie, and the one featured here is Katie's version of Ramone Cologne. Thanks, Katie!
