Meet AMA-CON 2016 Artist Greg Harms of Third Empire Studios

Greg Harms

Greg Harms started working in comics as a penciler, inker, colorist and designer in the early 90’s on his creator-owned, self-published books. Since then he has worked as a graphic artist for Hastings, Ent., done freelance graphic design work, been an advertising sales representative, worked as an editor for local newspapers, and owned and operated his own tourism paper.

Greg joined Roman Morales III as a partner in Third Empire Studio in 2006. Together, they have produced work for major companies, as well as many self-published and indie publishers. Greg has worked for Bluewater Productions on a 4-issue miniseries on 10th Muse 800 as an inker over Roman Morales III pencils. He has worked for Arcana as an inker on the Kord and Harley trade paperback, as well as BigDog Ink’s Pinpoint miniseries. Greg has worked with Plan B Comics inking over Roman Morales III on the Deadzone title. Greg has also joined indie publishers CCP (Station 39 and Father Faust #1-#3) and Luke Donkersloot’s 7th Wave Comics (Undertow #1-#4 on-going title) to ink and/or color their titles and some graphic design work.

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.”
