OCCUPATION: Colorist for Comic Books, Toys, Video Games, and Motion Pictures
WORKS: Star Wars, The X-Files, Doctor Who
ATTENDANCE: First Year
Brian and Kristy Miller are originally from Missouri and founded digital color studio Hi-Fi colour design in the Westport area of Kansas City in 1998. The couple moved away from the Show-Me state in 2001, relocating Hi-Fi in the Southwest. This is their first convention appearance in Kansas City since that time. The team at Hi-Fi colors comics like Doctor Who, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Batman VS. Superman, SpongeBob, and more. As the authors of several art-instruction books, including Hi-Fi Color for Comics, the creative duo are also focused on art education. They created Hi-Fi Academy as an outreach program where they visit schools and art galleries to share comic art education with the public. Hi-Fi Academy also offers three-day workshops for aspiring creators wanting to learn professional skills fast. In addition to his work coloring comics, Brian is also a respected illustrator known for his work on Star Wars, The X-Files, and Doctor Who, as well as his pop culture and gallery artwork. Little known fact: Brian’s first work in comics was coloring Kansas City area small-press comic books like Captain Crafty, Walt the Wildcat, and Planet 10 before going pro with Marvel on Cable & the X-Men.
It's Monday. (Insert requisite "It's a trap!" joke HERE.)
If you happened to miss the announcement this morning, Kansas City Comic Con will be bringing voice actor Erik Bauersfeld to the show this August. Erik is perhaps best known for voicing not one, but two characters from Return of the Jedi: fan favorites Admiral Ackbar and Bib Fortuna.
As mentioned earlier, he will be the first of two (2) Star Wars media guests announced this week, the second one coming tomorrow at 11 AM. HINT: This character has been known to wear a cape.
