East Side Mags is proud to bring you Diana Leto - artist extraordinaire!
You may recognize Diana Leto's name from her cover artwork for IDW’s MY LITTLE PONY and DARK HORSE’s Jungle Tales of Tarzan. A professional illustrator for over a decade, she has made a name for herself creating art for world class clients like Nickelodeon, Jim Henson Legacy, Sesame Street, Dark Horse comics, IDW Comics, and Warner Bros.
Diana earned her “Tarzan Yell” as the illustrator for the comic adaption of Edgar Rice Burroughs "The Cave Girl" and is the colorist for the latest incarnation of "Carson of Venus".
Her artwork is featured in Dark Horse’s graphic novel "The Halloween Legion", the critically acclaimed and Stan Lee Excelsior nominated all-ages adventure, of which she is co-creator. She is an active participant and presenter at Kids Comic Con and Adobe MAX, promoting literacy, education, and by example, gender equality in the professional arts.
Diana will be here from 2pm-5pm, signing copies of her work - The Halloween Legion (all ages appropriate) - and providing free My Little Pony prints (mashed up with Wizard of Oz) that she can sign for customers. She will also host a drawing workshop where she'll show everyone how to draw either Pinkie Pie or Fluttershy using simple shapes! The drawing workshop lasts about 40 minutes and will begin at 3pm.
Can't wait to see you all here!
