This week, I am very excited to feature one of my closest comrades, multi award winning artist, N Steven Harris! He is also an official artist for MECCACON, and has been for the past two years. Click on our YouTube link above to listen to his interview!
In addition to creating and illustrating (Brotherhood of) The Fringe, and co-creating Ajala: A Series of Adventures, along with Robert Garrett, N. Steven Harris has had a career spanning for over 20 years in the comic book industry.
His highlights include DC Comics, Aztek: The Ultimate Man, a character which he co-created along with Grant Morrison and Mark Millar, Batman: Officer Down, (DC Comics), X-Force 101, Deadpool Annual ‘98(Marvel Entertainment), and a comic book called The Crush (Motown, Image Comics).
In early 2011 Mr. Harris collaborated with the late L.A. Banks, best-selling novelist of “The Vampire Huntress Legends” series on a comic book adaptation that took place just after the novel series, published by Dynamite Entertainment.
He also illustrated a Jimi Hendrix motion comic called Mojo Man released in 2011 through iTunes.
When he is not doing comics or teaching young people through arts organizations, Mr. Harris does storyboards for advertising agencies like Ogilvy & Mather, and Berlin Cameron, and products like Samsung, and Glaceau Vitamin Water.
He also has participated in gallery shows showcasing comic book art in New York, Philadelphia, Georgia, Chicago, California, and, even one in Japan.
