|what is theBLVD?
theBLVD gathers five of today's leading comic book and entertainment design professionals, TOMMY LEE EDWARDS, JOHN PAUL LEON, BERNARD CHANG, TREVOR GORING, and SEAN CHEN, into a virtual studio. although each of the artists reside in different parts of the united states (spanning new york, north carolina, florida and california), they’ve embraced modern technologies, making distances shorter and idea sharing instantaneous. storytelling is the bond that ties them together, and they are each but a mere brush stroke and push of a button away.
first conceived as a fun way to hang out with fellow comic creators and friends during the convention tours, theBLVD began as a collective of talent into a single stretch of tables in various artist alleys. this allowed them to share ideas and recent work with peers and fans alike. members of theBLVD have appeared at major shows like the san diego comic con international and new york comiccon, to regional fan favorite shows like heroes con, baltimore comiccon, emerald city comiccon, wizard comic cons, and even international shows like the toronto fan expo, bristol comic con and mcm expo london.
from comics and books to advertising and film work and beyond- theBLVD sketchbook displays piles of ideas for compositions and gut reactions to scripts from five creators bound by the desire to do one thing- TELL A STORY….
