Tony Harris is an artist who has been working in comics since 1989.  He came to prominence in 1994 with his wildly popular and successful series Starman, a new version of an old character he co-created with James Robinson for DC Comics.  The series led to four Will Eisner Award nominations for Tony (one in 1995 and two in 1997, both for “best cover artist,” and one in 1997 with Wade Von Grawbadger for “best penciller/inker or penciller/inker team”).  He was also nominated in 2006 for “best cover artist” for the Wildstorm series he co-created with Brian K. Vaughan, Ex Machina.  The piece below I found on the website for his Jolly Roger Studios.  I’m not sure what this piece was created for, but in 2010 Tony drew some covers for the series Justice League: Generation Lost, and it fits into the arc of that story.

This weekend, Tony is at the Middle Georgia Comic Convention in Macon, GA.  Although very close to my own home (I went to high school with Tony, a year behind him – but we don’t know each other), I will not be able to attend.  But anyone in the area who can attend, go on down and see the local boy who done good.
