    BRING A DESIGNER TO JOE CON!!!* (please read details and disclaimer)

    In an attempt to bring Mark Pennington to JoeCon, I’ve decided to add this as a reward now that the book is funded! With the assistance of Joe Botta, we were able to lock down a room and found reasonable airfare for Mark to fly to Colorado to join all of us!

    Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1959, drawing came naturally to Mark by the age of 5. After being honorary discharged from the Army in 1980, Mark worked several miscellaneous jobs before making the decision that he wanted to attend art school. Soon after, he applied and got accepted into The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art and attended for three years. Shortly after leaving school, it was suggested to Mark and a few others from the Joe Kubert School that they should apply to Hasbro to work as designers. Mark was hired by Hasbro in 1985 and worked primarily on the G.I.Joe brand until 1989 when he left to become a freelance artist.

    After leaving Hasbro, Mark started working in the comic industry and has done and continues to do work for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, and Athleta Comics. Although he has worked as an Illustrator and a Penciler for several comics, he is best known as a premier Inker. Some of the titles he has worked on include “X-Men”, “Batman”, “Spawn”, and more recently “The Protectors”.

    Outside of traditional comics, Mark has also worked as an Illustrator on a children’s book series called “Short Tales Native American Myths” and on The Walking Dead Comic Book Trading Cards.

    To bring Mark to Joe Con, we estimated $2000 to pay for his airfare, hotel, admission and other expenses to attend. (This reward is for $2200 though to help cover Kickstarter’s fees)

    WHAT YOU’LL GET IF YOU PLEDGE:

    ONE LUNCH or DINNER AND AN 11” X 17” INK RENDERING BY MARK PENNINGTON
    Mark has agreed to do lunch/dinner with the 4 individuals who pledge towards this reward. That’s not all though, Mark has also agreed to do 4 commission pieces for the 4 people who pledge towards this reward. You’ll receive a 11x17 ink rendering of a single character. Mark shared that he can start the general concept design during the Convention and will mail it to you once completed!

    Thank you again and I hope we can get Mark to Joe Con this year!

    *DISCLAIMER: ALL 4 PLEDGES MUST BE MET! If the full $2200 is not raised within this reward, Mark will not be attending Joe Con. He will honor the individuals who pledged with a 11" X 17" color rendering of a single character.
