Stanley “Artgerm” Lau
Back to spill more creative juices on the AsiaPOP Comicon main floor is digital artist extraordinaire Stanley Lau a.k.a. artgerm, whose works are famous all over the world for a style that perfectly blends the best of Western and Eastern aesthetics. Aside from being an illustrator, he is also a designer, concept artist, and co-founder of the acclaimed Imaginary Friends Studios.
Yugana Senshi Uon
Not to be outdone is the return of Yugana Senshi Uon. A cosplayer since 2013, her creepy-cool portrayals of various pop culture characters has made her a mainstay in events all over Asia and the world, appearing for various brands and judging cosplay competitions. Her work has been featured all over the world through publications such as Smoosh, Cosplay Culture, and Cosplayzine.
New guests this year include:
Added to the lineup is cosplayer, model, actress, and live-streamer Vera Chimera, who got her big break as Lilith the Siren in the game Borderlands 2. Vera’s recent projects include several Overwatch events, where she cosplays the zippy pistol-toter Tracer, with Blizzard Entertainment, as well as a slew of local and international conventions.
Amanda Visell and Michelle Valigura
Joining the roster is the duo of artists Amanda Visell and Michelle Valigura, whose
works have been licensed by the likes of Disneyland, Kidrobot, and other big names. Both got
their big break working on stop-motion animation for the Simpsons series and the film Elf, and
both co-founded design brand Switcheroo.
Oh and if you’re an artist, we have Stephen Wacker of Marvel flying in to critique your work. We won’t be seeing C.B. Cebulski no more because the man’s a busy man now running Marvel Comics as the new EIC.
More exciting announcements of APCC’s partnerships with Marvel, Disney, Netflix and
