BRET BLEVINS COMES TO AIRSHIP 27
One of the premier American illustrators is coming to Airship 27 Productions. Bret Blevins, known for his extensive comics resume will be illustrating and painting the cover to the first ever full-length Ravenwood – Stepson of Mystery novel, Return of the Dugpa, written by Micah Harris.
Blevins became a professional comic book artist in the early 1980s. During that time, Blevins drew adaptations of films such as The Dark Crystal and and The Last Starfighter, both for Marvel Comics. Blevins was a guest artist on a number of titles before becoming the regular artist of the highly acclaimed The Bozz Chronicles which was published under Marvel's creator-owned Epic Comics imprint.
Blevins first regular job on a superhero comic was on the 1987 revival of Strange Tales, an anthology that featured two ongoing features produced by two different creative teams; Cloak and Dagger by Blevins, and Doctor Srange. That same year, Blevins became the regular penciler on New Mutants. Blevins drew the majority of issues from #55 to #83. Blevins later became the regular artist on Sleepwalker.
He then began to work primarily on comic books produced by DC Comics, especially Batman comics.
In 1996, Blevins moved into the field of television animation. He primarily drew storyboards for Warner-Brothers produced cartoons such as Superman, The New Batman/Superman Adventures, Batman Beyond, and the Justice League. Blevins won two Emmy Awards for his storyboard contributions to some of those shows.
Blevins has recently stopped regularly drawing storyboards will be returning to comics with new projects in 2015.
“When this opportunity arose to enlist such a super star artist, we fell over each other to make it happen,” says Airship 27 Production’s Managing Editor. “Both Art Director Rob Davis and myself have been huge fans of Bret’s work and are thrilled to be working with him on this project.”
Blevins has done nine black and white interior illustrations and is now in the process of painting the cover. Airship 27 hopes to have the book available shortly.
