DP Artist Spotlight: Javier Cruz Winnik | NYCC 2012
Hey folks, what’s new? I decided to wander around the colossus of a venue that is New York Comic Con today and finally found the “Artist Alley” I was looking for on day 1 of NYCC. A good friend of mine suggested that I go check out the work of a guy named Javier Cruz Winnick. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I would finally found the booth, but guys, I was extremely impressed at the pieces of art Mr.Winnik had to offer. My eye was immediately caught on one of his works that included a mix up of Wolverine and Batman. I had no choice but to start flipping through his book of sketches and colored pieces in which I admittedly found myself geeking out a bit. Upon talking to Mr.Winnik we spoke a little about his experience with NYCC. He is genuinely a very down to earth person contrary to the out-worldly characters he’s been drawing in his 24 years of experience. If you are at New York Comic Con this year, I would definitely recommend you to go check out his booth and pick up some of his works before you leave.
