Happy Colorist Appreciation Day – Live SquadCast

It is January 24th. This is officially Colorist Appreciation Day. Today we celebrate the artist who give life to the black and white images that are drawn for comic books. Colorists add texture to the storytelling and set the temperature for the scenes that take place. They are often left out of the discussion but they are a vital part of the art team that makes modern comic books.

On our Facebook and YouTube Channels we will be broadcasting a live round-table discussion with a great group of colorists. Bob Harrison will have Chris Sotomayor as his guest co-host, and Tamra Bonvillain, Marissa Louise, Paul Mounts, and Anthony Tollin will be their special guests. You can see the feed below:

Colorists (and Letterers) are often forgotten when appreciating the talent required to produce quality comic books.

They are the skilled artists that add depth and richness to the comic pages that we love. Also, if you are not paying attention, you will miss the part that the colorist is a key contributor in laying down the tone of each page and the best colorists are telling the story with color.

Feel free to click on it and see a larger image. Also, we linked to anyone with a Twitter page, so just click on the little blue bird and follow them.

NOTE: Since this is a day for colorists, we purposely did not credit line artists or writers. They are always getting credit, and they can just deal with it for one post.
