Wizard World always has a huge list of big name celebrities. Because of this, there are a lot of big names that sometimes fly under the radar. This is especially the case in Artist Alley.
Chris Ehnot is a graphic designer and freelance illustrator. His resume is impressive and lengthy. His work stretches the spectrum from comics to graphic novels to business illustrations. He is a giant in his field. You can find out all about Ehnot, including seeing a lot of his beautiful creations, at ChrisEhnot.com.
He is also a fun comic con guest. He is full of interesting thoughts and facts. He proclaims that he could survive on cereal and milk. He was also an extra in Spiderman 3.
Besides all of that, he is a big supporter of the Hero Initiative, a publicly supported nonprofit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators in need. The Hero Initiative assists yesterday’s artist with medical aid, financial support and seeking paid work. Ehnot believes in promoting and giving back. He'll gladly sign autographs at cons, but he politely asks for donations to the cause. It speaks volumes of Ehnot, because he could be getting more money and pocketing all of it.
Wizard World is full of big stars and I take nothing away from them. I just like to shine the light on some of the lesser-known stars I know there.
