The Art of Jock
The Art of Jock panel returns to MondoCon, this time focusing his book of the same name. Mark Simpson, known by his pen name, Jock, is an internationally recognized three-time New York Times best-selling artist and Eisner Award nominee. Over the last two decades, Jock has become one of the most distinguished illustrators in comics, with credits that include titles with DC Comics/Vertigo (The Losers, Batman: The Black Mirror, Green Arrow: Year One), Marvel (Savage Wolverine, Daredevil), and his runaway success, Wytches (co-created with Scott Snyder for Image Comics). In the movie world, Jock’s concept art has defined the look of major films such as Dredd, Ex Machina, and Star Wars Episode VIII.
Made in collaboration between Mondo and Insight Editions, The Art of Jock delves into the prolific artist’s catalog, showcasing not only the best of his sketches and published images. Jock will be talking about the inner workings of his creative process and this panel will provide a look into the mind and method of one of the most critically acclaimed illustrators working today. Following the panel there will be a book signing.
