Meet AMA-CON 2016 Artist George Zepeda

 

A Note from Artist George Zepeda:

“I have been in love with Comics ever since I was small and have been involved in art ever since I learned to draw. So it was only natural that I would have a love for being a comic book artist. I particularly love Japanese manga art and Anime. I have had works published in an Antarctic Press, Plan B Comics, Hero Illustrated, and various other independent comic book publishers. My website is www.zepeda.deviantart.com.”
