    Ignasi Monreal is in my humble opinion one of the most exciting fashion illustrators on the planet. His brilliant style pays attention to detail; you can almost touch the interesting fabrics! The realism with touches of comic and fantasy art come together well.

    We have high hopes for this year’s London Comic Con, after last year’s success:

    “Danny DeVito was among a host of special guests at the MCM London Comic Con, which attracted a record 64,000 visitors across the long weekend, with a massive 37,000 people coming through the doors on Saturday alone.

    Other stars at Britain’s biggest pop culture event included Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman; Grimm’s David Giuntoli; Storage 24 writer Noel Clarke and director Johannes Roberts; Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin and Holland Roden; Once Upon A Time’s Raphael Sparge; Star Wars’ Anthony Daniels; Falling Skies’ Seychelle Gabriel  and Sarah Carter; Sanctuary’s Pascale Hutton; Fairly Legal’s Sarah Shahi; legendary comics creator Marv Wolfman; the stars of hit CBBC show Young Dracula; cast and crew from supernatural drama Bedlam and cult horror fave Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.”

    The Japan EX area will feature again, serving up a fusion Japanese & Asian Culture with lots of food on offer. There is also a Steampunk section as well as the MCM Fringe Festival, with plenty of activities to do.

    The convention is on from the 26th-28th October, so get your tickets in by visiting the official website.

    Logan hails from Rhode Island and currently works in Boston as lead illustrator of design company Dobot, which he co-founded. I just love his luscious inks which have nice line variations, really swift strokes and even a bit of dry-brushing. The colours are always nicely selected and his composition is great. There are some really superb comic strips on his website; go and see!
