2015 VVCBF poster artist announced

The response to our call for artists to design this year’s official Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival poster image was terrific. Our committee had quite the task before them scoring all of the great artwork submitted by local artists. But, there had to be a winner, and that person is Henry L. Wilson II:

“The concept and layout of a young girl being empowered to defend herself with reading gave me some legit emotions,” said one of the judges. Henry’s “simple but impactful” artwork will be used on a variety of marketing materials for this year’s festival, including posters, fliers, social media, signs, and of course, this website! Check out more of Henry’s artwork on his online portfolio.

The second-place selection was this colorful contribution by Justin Ayers, which will adorn the necks of VIP badge holders at this year’s festival:
