Two updates in one week?! This could become a common occurrence around here until the show starts on June 3rd. Join our newsletter or follow us on Twitter or Facebook so you don’t miss any HeroesCon 2011 news! On with the show this is it…

Gabriel Hardman is an illustrator for comics and film. He’s currently drawing the Hulk for Marvel comics, but has also done storyboards for films such as Inception, Superman Returns, X-Men 2 and Tropic Thunder. He also drew Heathentown, an original graphic novel written by Corinna Bechko and published in 2009 by Image. His convention sketches are killer, so make sure you pay him a visit!

No stranger to anyone who has been to HeroesCon, Tony Shasteen is returning in 2011. Tony has done work for everyone. What’s that? You want a list? OK, you asked for it…Coca-Cola, BellSouth, IBM, Siemens, Nascar, Business Week, Hasbro, White Wolf, Shadowrun, Ten Speed Publishing, Picador Publishing, Realms of Fantasy, DC Comics, Boom Studios, Markosia, Devil’s Due, Dark Horse, Top Cow, Virgin and Image Comics. His work has been featured in the prestigious annual, Spectrum, The Best In Contemporary Fantastic Art.

Eric Skillman is making his first trip to HeroesCon this year. Eric is a Brooklyn-based writer, graphic designer, and art director best known for his design work on Criterion Collection DVDs and the design process blog Cozy Lummox.  His  comics work includes the self-published comic series EGG: Hard Boiled Stories, and his first graphic novel, Liar’s Kiss, drawn by Jhomar Soriano, is available in April from Top Shelf Productions.

Vito Delsante has written for DC, Marvel, Image, and Simon & Schuster, among others, and his stories have been reprinted the world over in a gajillion different languages. He is also a frequent contributor to the superhero redesign site, Project : Rooftop.

Five years ago Nolan Woodard gave up lucrative career in illustration to dive into comics, beginning at SCAD-Atlanta teaching digital coloring, conceptual illustration, and storyboarding in the Sequential Art department. Over the past year he has also cultivated a career as a colorist and completed work for Oni Press, BOOM! Studios, Dark Horse, Image, and Marvel. If two careers at the same time don’t keep him busy enough, he works on his own project “8th Day” when able, does sketch cards for TOPPS’ “Star Wars” trading card series, and is expecting his first child this summer! Congrats Nolan!
