Friday, June 15, 2018 was the 11 annual Inkwell Awards, taking place at Heroes Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. For those who don’t know much about comic book inking, here’s a good blog post to explain. This year, not only was it the 10th anniversary, but also the debut of the “Above & Beyond” Award. Above & Beyond was created to honor members, volunteers and others who exceptionally served in promoting the art form of comic book inking and ink artists. In addition there were the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Award and the annual Stacey Aragon Special Recognition Award.

The Inkwell Awards was created by comic book artist and inker Bob Almond. Assisting him was two Ms. Inkwell spokes-models, Hailey Skaza-Gagne (formerly known as Holly Black) and Kathy Taylor. We finally had the chance to meet Bob Almond earlier this year at East Coast Comicon. He was accompanied with gorgeous Ms. Inkwell spokes-model, Skylar Lauren Godwin.

The Inkwell Awards is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education and promotion of the art of inking. Inking is a much over-looked but crucial element to the comic book process. Everyone is encouraged to vote, whether you’re a fan or professional. The only difference this year is that the public is not allowed to vote in the The Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Lifetime Achievement category. The winners will be announced live at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC June 7-9 2013. For more information, please click on the above Inkwell Awards link.
