S1 E30: Leia Huddleston of Terry Huddleston Art
I love meeting different artists at conventions. You never know who you’ll find or whether you’ll click with them and while some people become interesting acquaintances, some become instant friends. See the moment when I first meant Leia Huddleston of Terry Huddleston Art. Leia and Terry run a traveling artist booth and can be found at many comic conventions throughout the year. Since this meeting, I’ve had a vending table next to Terry Huddleston at OnyxCon 2018 and spent several days at their booth at New York Comic-Con where they helped me adjust to being at a new con. Terry’s art caught my eye instantly, specifically their original characters created under the Icon series. It’s so rare to see Black fantasy characters of varying sizes and complexions that I found myself inspired to cosplay my interpretation of their original character, Patience, at OnyxCon. Leia writes the backstories of the original characters Terry illustrates, making them a powerhouse duo of creativity who deserves all the attention they receive. And they are really friendly. But don’t take my word for it. Watch the interview to see when I was first introduced to the first member of this amazing couple and then check for them at a convention near you. Links are below.
