‘Tellos’ tribute sketchbook to benefit Wieringo scholarship fund
Nearly seven years after the sudden passing of Mike Wieringo, a selection of tribute art has been collected by Todd Dezago and Craig Rousseau in the Mike Wieringo Tellos Tribute Sketchbook, available this weekend at HeroesCon.
The announcement came today from Wieringo’s Tellos collaborator Dezago, who said proceeds will benefit the Mike Wieringo Scholarship fund at the Savannah College of Art & Design, established in 2008. The sketchbook will be available at the table of Matt and Suzanne Wieringo.
The sketchbook includes contributions from the likes of Frank Cho, Karl Kesen, David Lafuente, Ryan Ottley, Brandon Peterson, Andie Tong and Jim Valentino.Debuting in 1999 from Image Comics, Tellos was a fantasy series centering on a young boy named Jarek, an anthropomorphic tiger named Koj, the fox thief Rikk and his companion Hawke, the pirate Serra and other heroes as they try to unravel the mystery of Jarek’s origins and stop the boy-wizard Malesur.
