2011 Challenger: James Riot

| October 19, 2011 | 2 Comments

Ahoy-hoy, I’m James Riot. I’m an illustrator and comic creator living in southern California. I founded a small press studio called Old Dying Kitty and currently self publish two of my own comics, The Path and Bastard Who. Most of my work is horror/sci-fi-related, and I rather like it that way. Never a dull moment and a wide berth of influences to draw from. I’ve had artwork published by both Marvel Comics and Dark Horse, and am currently doing sketch cards for The Avengers movie and Marvel Beginnings 2 through Upper Deck.

I found out about the 30 Character Challenge completely by chance, and I wish I’d known about it last year as well. It sounds like a great exercise, and a lot of fun to boot! I’ve successfully finished the last two 24hr Comic Day challenges, and I’m hoping to get through this one as well…though it definitely sounds a bit more daunting.  Looks like a lot of talented small plress folks are entering, so the results should be pretty awesome all around.

That’s about it. I never know what to say in things like this, so good luck everyone!
