CON Artist...what do you mean "Con Artist"
Relax Kimosabe, it's only a play on words! Have you ever wondered what your favorite artists think about various subjects in their artistic endeavors and within their own industry? The "Con Artist" is a site that features interviews with many of the top illustrators who frequently attend the Comic and Fantasy Conventions around the world. Thus the "Con" Artist was born. This site is dedicated to the development of up-and-coming artists as well as other curious professionals. It features various top artists and illustrators in the field of Comic Book and Fantasy art. The idea for "The Con Artist" goes back several years when two artists decided that they wanted to know the common denominators and the insight of those illustrators that they themselves looked up to.

When pursuing your dreams, remember the profound words spoken to the legendary animator Chuck Jones from his first instructor at Chouinard Art Institute who greeted his class with a grim edict:
"All of you here have one hundred thousand bad drawings in you. The sooner you get rid of them, the better it will be for everyone."
And the only way to "get rid of them" is to illustrate them, and get them out of your system and onto your canvas!
Take a peek into the minds and hearts of your artistic heroes and heroines as they open up to you.
