Just found out my one of my favorite editors, Ben Abernathy
just joined deviantArt! the short history of us? he was the editor behind my FIRST project with DC back in 2000 even though i did not know it! When i landed the Wildcats Version 3.o, he took over as my editor and guided me thru the years- putting me on covers and allowing me to really try different things, explore design and try painting covers for monthly books.
Id' say without him taking the chance on me, i'd never have gotten this far in my career, and pushing the portfolio i have today with all the things i can provide. Editors like these are what the industry needs more of. Editors to guide talent and give them opportunities to better themselves, and in turn- hopefully introduce new things to the medium, not tell them what to do to just please the bigger man in charge. Our last project together was Justice League Beyond in which we worked together to develop a better way to create comics that are created to BE read digitally, not just scanned in old comics chopped up. Today, he's the Editorial Director at Madefire [link]
and kicking much ass. Really hoping to work with the man again soon.

and say hey for me yeah?
thanks party people.
