On Saturday cosplayer and “Booth Diva” Scarlett Wolf was at the Comic Book Divas Publishing table; this was Scarlett Wolf’s second time with CBDP but as always she did an awesome job; she spoke with fans about the upcoming all-ages comic book “Hero Girl”; Scarlett Wolf will be portraying “Hero Girl” in this all action, all ages comic book; the comic is being co-written and co-created by Jeff Hughes and artist Joshua C. Lyman; Josh will be the artist and art designer. Yes, of course Scarlett Wolf did cosplay and as always knocked people over with her creativeness This year she portrayed Ariel from “The Little Mermaid” and from the Pokémon series “Misty”
Scarlett took pictures with fans and spoke to them about her appearance in “Hero Girl” at the Comic Book Divas table and she also around the vast convention floors again taking pictures and talking with fans.
Also on hand Saturday was 13 year old artist Brooke Nelson; as you remember Brooke visited our table at the Dallas Comic Con in 2013 to show us her artwork, we were in awe of her work at such a young age that we decided right there to work with her and bring her to the Dallas SciFi Expo. Since then Brooke has been working on her artwork and style, in addition she has appeared on local television news stations such as CBS 11 and FOX 4 News; Brooke spoke about her desire to be a professional artist and how she hopes to one day work not only in comic books, but also animation.
Brooke did a fantastic job on Saturday as she sold her prints, did some sketches of cosplayers; Brooke also greeted fans who saw her on television and came by to just talk to her about her artwork. Brook also spoke with people who also had autism and wanted to talk with her about how inspiring she was to them. Although this was Brooke’s first convention, she took to it like a fish to water. As mentioned Brooke did some sketches of cosplayers and even did a sketch of Scarlett Wolf as Misty from Pokémon. We marveled at how quickly she did the sketches and how well executed they were drawn; we were also impressed that each sketch took 25 to 30 minutes to complete. This is a remarkable talent we have met and grateful to her mother for allowing her to work with us.
We hope to see you at the Dallas Comic Con in May.
While at the Comic Book Divas Publishing table be sure to meet Brooke Nelson. We met Brooke Nelson at the Dallas Comic Con 2013 when she came by the Comic Book Divas Publishing table to show us her artwork; we enjoyed her artwork we decided to bring her on board to work with Comic Book Divas Publishing, while Brooke is one of the youngest artists we have worked with we think she is very good and in time many of you will be hearing from this talented artist.
