With an amazing roster of comic guests, entertainment guests, literary guests, artists, exhibitors, and so much more to look at, find, and discover while walking the show floor at the 2016 Emerald City Comicon, it seems almost impossible to get to know them all. After some careful browsing, perusing, selecting, and narrowing, I have come up with a list of the twelve artists and exhibitors I am most excited to check out including one that I have selected as my "Artist Spotlight" for 2016.
I had an opportunity to check out Jayme Twins Art last year at GeekGirlCon and am very excited that they will be able to show off their stuff during the 2016 Emerald City Comicon. One of the highlights of Jemely and Jeremy Jayme's work is a collection called "The Darkroom Series" which features a very unique look at the classic and iconic Wonder Woman character and they will actually be debuting new entries into the series featuring both Harry Potter and Indiana Jones! Also, look for new prints featuring Rey, Supergirl, and all kinds of fun stuff that I'm sure you'll want to have hanging on your walls.
You will find Jayme Twins Art at the "A Cosmic Alliance" booth, number 2209.
