Death Note Movie 2

Webcomic Artists

Sébastien Fréchette "Sirkowski"

Sirkowski

After studies in graphic design and a boring part-time job as an animation colorist, Sirkowski became a freelance illustrator, cartoonist and animator for ad agencies and a regular artist on Starship Titus. He is now working on Sister Wulfia Focka, for Slipshine.net. Sirkowski is most known for the Miss Dynamite anime and manga, created in 1990. Miss Dynamite "follows freelance terrorist Eva Sirkowski and her bisexual assassin associate Blackie Chin on their 'action packed, mostly weird' adventures."

Mark Sprague

Mark Sqrague

Mark Sprague is not actually Japanese; he just can't seem to stop drawing that way.

Semi-famous as a fandubber in the mid-90's, and writer and artist of the long-running webcomic Dragon Mango, he's still not entirely sure why he's a guest at a convention, but promises to do his best to be entertaining!

Mark's current projects include keeping Dragon Mango updated, various live action and animated shorts, and a strange combination between a webcomic and videogame entitled "Stella N3ra".

David Coacci

David Coacci

Born and raised in Montreal, and having a passion for anime and manga, David Coacci is honored to be invited to Otakuthon. He's been an avid webcomic enthusiast for many years, and has been drawing for much longer.

While studying art at the CEGEP of St-Laurent, 6 years ago, he began work on "Renaissance", a cyberpunk fantasy webcomic. He soon realized that the only part of art that he actually enjoyed was drawing and graphic design. So, he dropped out and enrolled in the International Academy of Design and Technology, where he was able to expand his artistic and design skills, thus improving his artwork.

Today, when not working on the comic, or at his job as a web designer, David spends his time playing video games or stopping pucks at the local hockey rink. Otakuthon 2008 will be his first convention and he is very excited to be attending.
