I met artist Sara Richard many years ago at a comic con and I have been bugging her ever since. I have interviewed her several times over the years, including On the Beat With Sara Richard at C2E2 2012, one of the first interviews.
Sara is extremely talented. She has created so many beautiful works. She illustrated “Kitty and Dino,” a kid's book, which was nominated for a 2013 Eisner Award (Best Publication for Young Readers). Some of her other work includes cover art for Jem and the Holograms, illustrations for a Justice League tarot card set, variant covers for Deadpool, Rick and Morty and Bob's Burgers and so much more.
One more creation was her rendition of The Johngy. I did not give her any directions, because I wanted her vision and I got an awesome piece, which now hangs proudly in my place. I just love it.
Aside from being a gifted artist, Sara is simply a cool person. Her adventures are fun to follow, her attitude is refreshing and I am just a big fan! She is always one of the most popular artists at any comic con, but she always has a few minutes to catch up with me.
