The CLLDF at Edmonton Expo 2015
MEET JAMES LLOYD
Original Simpsons-style Portraits $10
Since 1998 Lloyd has been a regular artist for Bongo Comics Groups’ “The Simpsons” and “Futurama 2000” comics. In 2011 the collected “Futurama”/ “Simpsons” crossover series on which he and fellow Vancouverite Ian Boothby collaborated was nominated for both Eisner and Harvey Awards.
Of course, Lloyd’s comic work doesn’t begin or end with Bongo; he entered Vancouver’s animation industry in the mid-90s, during which time he also became involved in the burgeoning small-press comics scene. While he continues to publish his own titles, Lloyd has recently begun work on Boom! Comics’ “Adventure Time” series, and contributed to First Second’s “Above the Dreamless Dead” anthology in 2014.
Now you can delve a little deeper into the Groening universe and become a bonafide member of your favourite four-fingered family. As a CLLDF fundraising initiative, Lloyd will draw your cartoon portrait in the Simpsons style!
Each portrait is only $10 and will help support CLLDF projects and the protection of free speech in the Canadian comic book industry, so remember to visit us during the Edmonton Expo!
