After reviewing hundreds of submissions during a competitive review process, the DC Talent Development (DC is a division of Time Warner No. 37 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list) team has identified six aspiring artists to participate in a two-week Artist Workshop hosted at DC’s Burbank headquarters. The workshop is led by industry veterans Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson and DC Publisher Jim Lee.

“Once again we were thrilled and overwhelmed by the level of talent represented in the 2017 Artist Workshop submissions,” stated DC’s Vice President & Executive Editor, Young Reader & Talent Development, Bobbie Chase. “This year’s class represents the best up-and-coming artists in comics and they are poised to gain invaluable insight and experience through working with and learning from Jim, Klaus and Andy.”
