Meeting a Hero and Legend
About a year ago, I posted my Influence Map, an idea I got from artist Cedric Hohnstadt. It shows the artists that have inspired and influenced me. Today, at the Cincinnati Comics Expo, I got to meet one of the greats from my map: Legendary Artist Stan Goldberg. Stan's influence on me came through his 41 years of work with Archie Comics. But he has worked with many others, including Timely Comics (Marvel before they were Marvel). I got a couple of drawings from Stan and enjoyed his stories as he drew, including some great advice to me as an artist. He was a pleasure to meet!
