Capital City Comic Con is pleased to name Mary Mitchell as the recipient of the third annual Capital City Comic Con Original Art Scholarship in Comic Studies.
Mary is currently pursuing the BFA major in Graphic Design and a Comic Art and Graphic Novels Minor at Michigan State University. She has been elected as President and proudly serves the Graphic Novels Club at MSU and looks forward to helping others create, develop and publish many novels in the future.
As she continues her journey through college, she hopes to begin many more ideas and advance her artistic skill in comic making. She enjoys working in various medias and exploring new foundations such as color, animation and world building.
As part of the scholarship, Mary has created the Official Artwork for the 2018 Capital City Comic Con. We are very proud to unveil her work below:
