Tim Vigil at Wizard World Chicago 2015

Despite being at many comic cons, I somehow had never met Tim Vigil prior to Wizard World 2015 in Chicago.  I am happy to say I finally met this talented comic book artist.
Vigil is mostly known for his work with horror comics.  His graphic novel Faust: Love of the Damned (co-created with David Quinn) was adapted by Brian Yuzna as the 2001 movie Faust: Love of the Damned.  He followed that with Faust: Book of M and Faust: Singha's Talons.
The basic plot for Faust: Love of the Damned centers on artist John Jaspers, who sells his soul to the mysterious M (Mephistopheles) to avenge the death of his girlfriend. Things take another turn when he is periodically transformed into a demon with a passion for killing.
Tim's deviant art site is filled with amazing art work.  His work is intense and intricate.  A lot of his creations are in black and white, although there are plenty of color works.  Some of it carries an "adult" warning, but you need to verify your age before those are visible.
You really should check out the Tim Vigil deviant art page and also look out for him at a comic con near you.  In addition to his vast talent, he's a nice guy, too.
