For a couple of years, DC Comics has been running a competitive review process to bring writers and artists into a workshop to develop their talents. DC has announced the upcoming class of the 2017 Artist Workshop.
Members of the 2017 class include Amancay Nahuelpan (from Chile; YOUNG TERRORISTS, CLANDESTINO, CALEXIT), Aneke (from Spain; RED SONJA, BOMBSHELLS, GOTHAM CITY GARAGE), Domo Stanton (from Baltimore; THE BIG CON JOB, PREZ), Isaac Goodhart (from New York; POSTAL), Max Raynor (from the United Kingdom; 2000 AD, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA), and Priscilla Petraites (from Brazil; BRILLIANT TRASH).
The class of 2017 will participate in a two-week artist workshop at the DC’s Burbank headquarters. The workshop is lead by Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson, and Jim Lee.
“Once again we were thrilled and overwhelmed by the level of talent represented in the 2017 Artist Workshop submissions,” stated DC’s Vice President & Executive Editor, Young Reader & Talent Development, Bobbie Chase in a press release from DC Comics. “This year’s class represents the best up-and-coming artists in comics and they are poised to gain invaluable insight and experience through working with and learning from Jim, Klaus and Andy.”
