Sean Thornton at C2E2 2017

As I have previously written, C2E2 (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo) 2021 was postponed until December of this year. C2E2 2020 was one of the last events I attended before the pandemic hit. One of the cool artists I met a few years ago was Sean Thornton.
Thornton is an artist, focusing on comic and fantasy art. Thornton works in black and white, as well as colors. His works cover a myriad of subjects from superheroes to pop culture to original creations. A lot of artists draw superheroes, making it difficult for specific work to stand out, but Thornton's work does stand out.
The Illinois-based artist lists Daffy Duck as his favorite cartoon character. I found that interesting because of all of the characters he has drawn and created. I enjoy Daffy, too, but I wonder what it is about Daffy that puts him at the top of Thornton's list.
Despite picking Daffy as his favorite, I could not find any of his work featuring the wacky duck on his Deviant Art page. I did find plenty of other cool work, including the Piece below.
Go to Sean Thornton's Deviant Art page to see more of his great artwork and follow Sean Thornton Art on Facebook for more frequent updates. Go to C2E2.com for more info and follow C2E2 on Facebook for more news..

Well hot dog, thanks for the write up and kind words John! I'm awfully flattered! I unfortunately won't be in attendance at this year's C2E2, but will do my best to be there in 2022. If you want to see the latest work check out my Etsy store!


Thanks again!

P.S. I like Daffy because he's flawed, like the rest of us, taking his lumps and getting back up! :)

Glad you like it and thank you for the reply. Extra thanks for the Daffy explanation. Love your work. Hope to see you sometime down the line.
