Sofawolf Press is quite pleased to congratulate Teagan Gavet on her recent nomination for a Russ Manning award for her work on Nordguard: Across Thin Ice!
The award is for an individual who shows promise in visual storytelling, which is why Teagan, the layout and penciling half of the Blotch duo, was selected for the nomination. According to the Comic-Con International website:
[The Russ Manning Award] is presented to a comics artist who, early in his or her career, shows a superior knowledge and ability in the art of creating comics. (emphasis added)
Teagan joins four other artists nominated for this year's award. (See the official CCI announcement for additional details.) The winner will be announced at the Eisner Awards ceremony on July 13* at Comic-Con International in San Diego. We wish them all the best of luck, but of course, you can guess who we hope will win!
*While the official announcement puts the Eisner awards ceremony on July 22, we believe this is an error. (It is the date of last year's ceremony.) Other Eisner award announcements mention July 13, which is the Friday of the convention this year.
