Mimikeke doing a cover!
« on: 09 March, 2017, 12:32:04 am »
Sometime forumer, games artist and one of 2000 AD's biggest American fans Mimikeke/Emily Zeinner who flew all the way from the US to London for the 40th has managed to bag a gig with the prog :D

2000 AD broke the news a few hours ago on Twitter and she's been tweeting excitedly about it ever since. A true testament to putting your art where your heart is - here are some of her unique 2000 AD fan pieces for the uninitiated :








Congrats Emily :D

Excellent! Looking forward to seeing it! Did I read it'll only be the second female artist to do a cover too?

And those stickers would be a great merch idea. Just sayin.
To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

Ah, that's fantastic. I saw the tweet but didn't make the connection till now. Chuffed to bits for you.

I really, really like the version of the 2000AD logo on that wrapping paper thingy.

Sad to say I'd never heard of this artist before or seen her astonishingly delightful work. Love that Valentine's card, excited to see what she does for the Prog! Thanks for sharing, CFM.

Oh, and for people keeping score on the 'female cover artist' front, there are at least three previous, Maya Gavin and Fay Dalton, (although technically they were both on the Megazine), and of course Angie Kincaid/Mills on Prog 330, kicking off Slaine in style.

She was a regular (and enthusiastic) boarder here for two/three years in the wake of the 2012 film...! Contributed to a few of the art comps and calendars, too.

Wasn't she getting married too about the same time?  I seem to remember a Dredd cake topper or something "crafty" like that.

Being made up into a droid? Grand stuff!  :thumbsup:

IIRC, Mimikeke did a cracking Hershey piece - amongst other bits - a while ago, so looking forward to seeing the end results this time round.

And those stickers are aces. Tharg really does need to start doing free gifts again...

Excellent work. Finally, that Dredd/Sims crossover is one step closer!

I actually asked a lady with a homemade Judge logo cardigan at the 40th if she was Mimikeke. She wasn't.
