Pickman's Apprentice: A. S. Koi vs J.D. Carlucci
Pickman's Apprentice is a quick drawing competition. Artists have 90 minutes in which to plan and execute an illustration based on a Lovecraftian beastie and a location. The audience will pick the winner and the pieces will be silent auctioned for charity.
Hailing from the writhing mudflats of the Pacific Northwest, Koi has made a 20+ year career of tinkering with necromancy and trading with space elves. Koi's work has appeared in d20 Call of Cthulhu and Unknown Armies 2nd Ed, among others.
John Donald Carlucci is illustrator and painter strongly influenced by artists such as Mike Mignola, Gerald Brom, Chris Bachalo. Darren Yeow, and Batt Dixon. His recent clients include Hollywood reporter Nikki Finke’s Hollywood Dementia, 20th Century Fox - Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Strange Aeons Magazine, LoveCraft Wines, and The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. JDC is seeking to improve his artwork and technique every day. His only desire is to get better and better. To create is an amazing thing and to be appreciated makes it all worthwhile. With several projects underway, such as That Ghoul Ava comic with creator Todd Brown, JDC is looking forward to a busy and productive year!
