San Francisco comic and freelance artist Chris Staggs graduated from the Joe Kubert school for cartooning and animation. Relatively new to the comic industry Mr. Staggs has already worked on Marvel Comic’s Deadpool titles, and more recently has been working on a Dark horse title’s Mass Effect: Homeworlds and Prototype 2. The cross-section of his illustration influences, including J.C. Leyendecker, Mike Mignola, Alphonse Mucha, Claire Wendling, Sergio Toppi, Sebastion Kruger and Carlos Meglia, are shown in his large range of styles. I particularly like his some of his more recent black & white commissions, which you can see on his DeviantArt page.
Oh yes, Happy new year!
