Welcome Mark Sparacio to RocCon!
Successful illustrator, Mark Sparacio studied sequential art for three years under the legendary Will Eisner —recognized as the creator of the Graphic Novel—at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, where he earned a B.F.A. in Illustration and Sequential Art.
While still in school, Sparacio received his first professional assignment to create a painting for the movie poster for the United Artist International film, The Draughtsman’s Contract. This opportunity resulted in a long run as a freelance illustrator in the advertising industry.
After working for both Marvel and D.C. Comics and creating covers for Comics Buyer's Guide and The Overstreet Price Guide, creating paintings for card sets for UpperDeck/DC Comics and for Topps’ Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids, Sparacio developed his first Creator-Owned series, Omega Paradox, for which he did finished pencils and painted covers for the first story arc along with co-creator/writer, Ian Ng and digital painter, Abe Melendez.
Spring 2018 will see the debut of a second Creator-Owned Graphic Novel Series, CHELSEA DAGGER, this one totally conceived, written and drawn by Sparacio and with the help of Chris Summers as interior digital painter and Marshall Dillon as letterer.
Constantly developing new ideas, story lines and creating the corresponding artwork.
