OafCon 2017 spotlight: Jerry Bennett
Jerry Bennett is the highlighted artist in this OafCon spotlight.
The Oklahoma City artist has worked on a number of locally produced comics, including the sci-fi adventure "Nadir' s Zenith" with Jackson Compton.
"Nadir's Zenith" features a world of space-travel and corporations as governments.
Bennett has created shirt designs for Marvel, Lucasfilm and many more, and crafted an exclusive print for The Stan Lee Foundation. Recently, Bennett has been in-demand as a sketchcard artist.
"I do have lots of Star Wars, Walking Dead and MST3K original art sketchcards that will be randomly inserted in trading card packs in sets coming out in the coming months," Bennett said in an e-mail. "Just signed on for another fun story with Jeff Provine for his Okie Comics magazine."
