The first artist I chose for this new section of the blog, is one whose art I became familiar with only recently, but quickly he has become one of my favorite pencillers. Currently he is in Green Lantern: New Guardians, and his name is Tyler Kirkham.
Green Lantern Corps #58
Tyler Kirkham was born and raised it Utah. He grew up loving art, and has always enjoyed drawing. He really found a love for comics in the early 90s when Image Comics came on the scene. At that moment he knew what he wanted to do with his life. After going to countless conventions and sending out lots of samples, his first paid art gig was drawing for a local newspaper. He later landed a job drawing an indy book called "The Gift."

His work has been featured on many Web sites and in magazines, like FHM, Wizard, Nintendo Power, and Imagine FX among others. He's also done video game concept work and some novel and book covers. He's currently working for DC Comics and also developing his own stories and ideas with hopes to get them on the shelves in the near future.
