    Default CharCon Featured Guest - Billy Tackett



    We are thrilled to announce that Billy Tackett will be attending CharCon as our featured guest!



    Billy is an amazing artist who has been working closely with CharCon over the last two years. He did the cover art for our program last year and again this year(wait until you see it!!!). On top of all that, he is a great guy!


    A little about Billy:


    With humble beginnings in rural KY, award winning artist Billy Tackett freelanced tirelessly for 12 years to receive international recognition as an accomplished artist and illustrator. His numerous works include fine art paintings, portraits, and various other commercial illustrations. His work has been showcased in publications such as Horrorhound Magazine and ImagineFX and his client list includes authors Shane Moore, Curt Siodmak, Richard Lupoff and Fran Friel, pro wrestler Jerry Lynn and death-rap musician Necro. After publishing over 200 book covers he created his signature piece, Zombie Sam, which gave birth to his Dead White & Blue series and has amassed a loyal fan base that transcends all genres and stereotypes. In addition to creating art in his studio he also attends over 20 events per year, most by invitation as Artist Guest of Honor, and has launched a line of apparel and merchandise featuring his art. His book, For the Love of Monsters is scheduled for release in late 2009 followed by his first graphic novel shortly thereafter. Avoid visiting BillyTackett.com if you suffer from heart problems, weak stomach,fear of the dark or a shortness of a sense of humor



    Billy will bring his unique art style and dark sense of humor to CharCon this year and we can't wait! Be sure to stop by and see him and while you are there, pick up a t-shirt or print of something wicked!

    It was great meeting Billy and his wife at Origins. Unfortunately dinner this time may have to consist of a quick trip to Wendy's! Look forward to seeing him and his wife at the convention.
