Paint & Pixel is pleased to welcome featured comic artist, Jack Purcell!
Jack Purcell graduated with a bachelor’s degree in illustration from Massachusetts College of Art in 1996. He began his work both penciling and inking in various independent jobs with a variety of companies, in addition to freelance illustration for companies like Best Buy, New Jersey Fireworks, and Digi magazine. Jack has taught workshops in comic book creation for the last 20 years in schools, libraries and museums and feels very old when he says that out loud. He eventually focused on inking and has worked on numerous independent titles, Heavy Metal magazine, and a variety of projects for DC Entertainment, Disney, Image and Marvel Comics. Titles include Batman, Gotham Underground, Batman: The Dark Knight, Birds of Prey, Gotham City Sirens, Guardians of the Galaxy, Batgirl and others.
2011 saw the release of Stan Lee’s The Guardian Project which includes both pencils and inks by Jack. Jack also teaches classes at Rhode Island School Of Design Continuing Education.
He happily lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife, son, daughter, dog, and WWE championship belt.
