NauckProfilePicTalented comic artist Todd Nauck will be hosting a special Q&A, signing and artist workshop event to celebrate his first art installation in an accredited museum, the Bakersfield Museum of Art.

The exhibit opens February 4th. 

Todd Nauck has over 17 years experience in the comics industry. If you're into comics, you're probably familiar with his work for Image, DC and Marvel comics - Amazing Spider-Man, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Teen Titans Go, and Wild Guard, Young Justice and the Spidey and Obama teamup.

When he travels to comic shows and conventions each year, fans commission him to create artwork rendered in Copics. Recently, we were lucky enough to chat with Todd on Twitter about his art making process, his Marvel Custom Solutions projects, and the artwork he created for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Lance Briggs (and others) for the NFL Superbowl, and ESPN.

We asked him to explain his unique creative process. His approach - which involves first defining the form in color - deviates from the more conventional approach of starting with pencils, following up with inks, then finally adding color. Seems that @RAHeight also likes working this way: todd nauck tweettodd nauck tweettodd nauck tweettodd nauck tweettodd nauck tweettodd nauck tweet ra height tweet Judging from the dozen or more images he started posting, this method works very well for him. He chose the subjects from recommendations from his army of loyal Facebook and Twitter fans.
