COMIC COMPETITION


We put out the call out for fans to create their own iconic comic with theme ‘New World.’ Check out the winning design by Turner Huston and a few of our other top picks.


Turner Huston is a father of two and middle school math and reading teacher. In his free time, he creates art and comics, which have been his passions for most of his life. A longtime fan of Marvel, especially a certain waterfowl, Turner likes making jokes that aren’t funny, and is always trying to find something new to write and draw about. He is accustomed to pencil and ink and has recently started incorporating watercolors into his work. He has created a few comics independently, including his collection of anti-jokes. He also collaborates with others, primarily doing the art for stories, such as his work on Tex Arkana. His work can be found in many issues of One Page Stinkers, a local comic anthology available in Portland. As part of Gentleman & Scholar Comics, he is becoming a regular at local conventions and always willing to create unique commissions.
Joey Santiago is an 18 year old cartoonist. At around 5 years old, he got bit by the cartoon bug, then for many years proceeded to continuously draw at any possible opportunity, and now seeks to get into the animation industry with a pencil and some pens in his right hand, and some sheets of paper in his left hand. Whether he'd be sketching sketchpads or painting plastic animation cels, Cartoons will always have a place in Mr. Santiago's heart and soul.
