Capital City Comic Con is pleased to name Grace Fish as the recipient of the first annual Capital City Comic Con Original Art Scholarship in Comic Studies.
Grace Fish is a student at Michigan State University. She has been drawing and writing all her life, and hopes to someday combine these two passions by creating full-length graphic novels. When she is not drawing, she likes to read and spend time with her pet chickens.
As part of the scholarship, Grace has created the Official Artwork for the 2016 Capital City Comic Con capturing the spirit of the event, which we are very proud to unveil:
Capital City Comic Con established the scholarship this year to encourage the study of comic art and is currently offered exclusively to current students at Michigan State University.
Grace’s art will be featured at the 2016 Capital City Comic Con on Saturday, August 27 between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. where she will have an artist space. Grace will also officially be recognized as Original Art Scholarship in Comic Studies recipient during a presentation on the Main Stage.
Advance tickets are now on sale for the event, which can be purchased here.
