Travis Charest, Frank Cho Ink Jim Lee At Big Wow

While I'm at Kapow this weekend, in the US they'll be hosting the Big Wow Comic Fest.

One of the highlights is the Awesome Inking Panel in which various comic professionals at the show are provided with penciled art copied on blue line paper, and asked to ink the penciled image in their style, which will then be used during the inking panel.

Penciled pieces range from the past legends, late Dave Stevens and John Buscema, to DC co-publisher Jim Lee.

At the panel, the various inked pieces are shown and each piece is analyzed by the artist who inked the image. The discussion generated at the panel cover all range of topics from tool usage to the thoughts behind a certain technique. This panel is designed to show the fans the real life working process of a comic book professional.

At the end of the convention, the finished inked pieces are auctioned to help defray expenses of the show.

So, what do you fancy? Batman pencilled by Jim Lee, then inked by… Travis Charest, Buzz, Mike Mayhew, Stuart Saygar, Tim Vigil and Frank Cho?
