Mrs. Primary Ignition is a youth librarian. As such, every year she attends the annual children’s literature breakfast put on by Anderson’s Bookshop. I’ve been lucky enough to go with her twice. Both times, we’ve been lucky enough to be in the company of Eisner Award winning artist Gene Ha.
Because the guy is just that talented, he sits there and does personalized sketches of people at the convention. Last year, he was actually sitting at our table. We happened to mention we were going to The Lego Batman Movie later that day. So he drew yours truly under the Lego Batman helmet. Then this year, he drew my wife. I wouldn’t presume to speak for Mr. Ha, but I’d say she made a much better subject than I did.
If you get the chance to be drawn by an Eisner Award-winning artist, you jump at it. All the more so if that artist happens to be Gene Ha.
For more from Gene Ha, check out the first volume of Mae, and check out the first issue of the new Mae series from Lion Forge Comics when it hits comic shops on June 20. Mr. Ha is on Twitter at @GeneHa.
