      Artist Guest of Honor:  Shawn  Howe


   Shawn Howe is a self taught,  internationally

published artist, who specializes in pop culture

art. He has brought his "stylized realism " style

to several covers of many independent published

comics.  Portraits and likenesses are the backbone

of his portfolioand he has a strong pull towards

Fantasy and Sci Fi art. 

  He started out,  heavily influenced by the major

artists of the 80s and 90s, such as McFarlane

and Silvestri. However, after a decade plus of

not drawing anything,  he found his current

style. His style borrows from the dynamic

storytelling of Marc Silvestri and Sam Keith

while adding the taste of realism,  influenced

by Frazetta, Mitch Foust and Alex Ross.

  Shawn is definitely a Memphis made talent, 

having grown up in the area and attending

University of Memphis. He currently resides,

here,  in the MidSouth. All while creating covers

for publications,  as far away as the Netherlands.

Currently,  he is a featured cover artist for 3

Heads Productions' shared conic universe.
