StocktonCon Annouces 2015 Tony Dexuga Memorial Art Contest

2015 Tony DeZuniga Memorial Art Contest

StocktonCon is proud to announce the fourth annual Tony DeZuniga Memorial Art Contest. Tony passed away in 2012, but his legacy will continue to live on with his family and those that he inspired. He made Stockton his home for the greater part of the last decade and he worked with many local artists, mentoring them when he could. He is an important figure in comic, gallery, and illustration art for several reasons. During the 1970s, he brought a realistic look from his advertising style of illustration. Some of his best work was in collaboration with John Buscema in the early issues of The Savage Sword of Conan. He also co-created Jonah Hex and The Black Orchid for DC comics and worked with a number of important stories in the comic world.

This year’s contest will be split into two categories with a Kids Contest (12 and under) and an Adult Contest (13 and older). The format of the contest is open to any subject matter that each entrant would like in a color 11”x17” poster. Judging will be based on the entrant’s digital submission. All entries will be featured in the StocktonCon program (space permitting).
