Ross Campbell was one of the very first professional artists to draw with us on 5 Minute Marvels — an awesome sketch of Domino. Check it out here.
So, it’s totally cool that Ross offered to help us kick off Year Two on 5MM with a sketch of his original character, Shadoweyes. If you haven’t seen Shadoweyes, you can learn more about her story at Ross’ site www.GreenOblivion.com or … better yet … you can buy it at Amazon.com! For an extra side order of coolness, see Ross’ amazing ideas for the the New Mutants/Generation X on Project: Rooftop.
Gotta say, Grace and I have made many pals with 5MM, but Ross is in the running for “Nicest Guy in Comics.”
And, here’s our take. (P.S. We wanted them to be extra good so, in truth, we took 10 minutes.)
So, we have a new pal on 5 Minute Marvels — ROSS CAMPBELL. We were introduced to Ross by our buddy, Kelly Thompson. And, we’re excited. Ross has been so nice working with the girls and me to create this tribute to the X-Men’s Domino. He was so excited and so attentive to pick a character the girls would love to draw and, he did it.
Ross Campbell is another talented grad of the Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2006, he published his first graphic novel, called Wet Moon. He is the creator of The Abandoned and Mountain Girl and Water Baby. He also recently drew the story “The Hollows” for the first issue of the DC/Vertigo comic House of Mystery written by Bill Willingham.
A true child of 80s culture, Ross puts up incredible tributes to cartoon characters, Kaiju (Godzilla/Gamera monsters) and more at http://mooncalfe.livejournal.com/ And, Ross’ personal Web site is http://www.greenoblivion.com/
