Motor City Comic Con is about a month away. On May 17-19, I'll be in Novi, MI ensconced in pop culture greatness. Until then, I am recalling some of my favorite bits from my many years of covering the MCCC.
Primo Cardinalli didn't call himself a professional artist until his mid-40's. His path to becoming an artist is a fascinating tale of talent and perseverance. He has overcome struggles, including literally being a starving artist. Fortunately, Primo stuck with his skills and is still producing awesome artwork.
A self-described "monster kid" growing up, Primo explains that he mostly paints "monsters and dead things from movies." One of my favorite pieces is titled, "What's Under Your Bed?"
With a colorful past, a similarly colorful look and beautiful creations, Primo stands out in Artist Alley. Primo's booth is a yearly stop for me at Motor City Comic Con. I always look forward to catching up with him and seeing his new pieces.
