Eddie Nuñez

[jimlee]

Please join us today in welcoming newcomer gelatomettista Eddie Nuñez to the ranks of WildStorm! He's been here for several weeks now but we always wait a bit before an official welcome just to make sure we haven't hired an axe murderer!

Eddie has been tearing it up already, working on the DCU online game and honing his skills as an artist to become the next new shiny thing, grande style. His work has a bold, powerful style combining the big, meaty shapes of manga with the mad energy found in well, frankly, graphitti art. It's fresh and it's got flow and his coloring and rendering skills have made quantum leaps in just the short time he has been here.

The craziest thing about this "overnight" success story is that I have known Eddie for many years now, seeing him once or twice a year, usually at the SDCC as he is a close buddy to fellow gelatomettista Carlos D'Anda but we always hung out just socially. He's a fairly quiet one (what, you thought the axe murderer line was a joke?!) so while we shared many a beer, we never talked art as far as I can remember...which thinking about it, maybe we did, and I just can't remember lol...damn tequila. It is the drink of his peeps and SDCC is a whirlwind of comics and confusion so forgive me. So I didn't even know he drew to be honest but his long hours spent at the table have made all the difference this year as his work has really crystallized into some consistently fun and dynamic art to behold.

Check out some of his "sketches" above and below or hit him up at MySpace or on deviantART. While he has become an integral part of the MMO team, I really expect him to leap out and dazzle the readers with his work in the coming years.

Wow. Love the work Eddie. I checked out your Deviant page along with some other stuff ... ate it up! Mmm-Mmm Good! Zealot/Grifter piece is damned impressive - especially since I've had a soft spot for the Wildcats characters since I was a young'n. Good luck at Wildstorm and on your work with the DCU MMO.
