Stephen Prestwood Tribute Comic.
« on: 06 June, 2016, 07:20:14 AM »
Hello, everyone. I know it's been a long time since I've been on the forum.

As you probably know, small press artist Stephen Prestwood recently passed away. At the time he was drawing a two-issue mini-series of my small press comic, El Bigote. He was two pages short of finishing the first issue.

As a tribute to Stephen, I'm looking for artists to pick up a page each and finish the issue (sort of like the art blog Conor Boyle, Emperor, and others put together years ago). So far, SKD, El Chivo, Conor Boyle, Owen Watts, Graham Pierce, Dunk!, Darren Stephens, Neil Mc, Chris Askham, Bhuna, Davey Candlish, and Tony Rothwell are confirmed with others interested in helping. I could use the help of a few more artists.

Please message me if you would like to be involved - even if you'd only like to contribute thoughts or memories of Stephen, which I'll publish on the comic's editorial page.

You can see the Facebook page set up for the project here: https://www.facebook.com/Stephen-Prestwood-El-Bigote-Page-1070430089705207/ and more references on the El Bigote page here: https://www.facebook.com/elbigotecomic/.

Yeah, the weirdest thing about putting the comic together is that Stephen isn't involved!

Tough news, Van Dom, but glad to see you round these parts again.

amines2058, I got in touch with you on Facebook.

That's terrible news. Stephen's work has featured in many reviews I have done.  I single out The Journey as my favourite, first published in The Psychedelic Journal back in 2013 and recently reprinted in the Paragon Annual 2016.

Very sad.
