The very first person Shane contacted to be a guest at SiouxperCon was Tom Nguyen. Tom has been a fervent supporter of the convention since that first year and we are pleased to have him back as a guest for SiouxperCONLINE.
Tom Nguyen began his professional career freelancing for comic book publishers such as DC Comics and Marvel Comics from the age of 19. Building his name as an inker, he has worked on major titles such as Batman, Green Lantern, JLA, Catwoman and Superman: The Man of Steel among others.
Tom has since quickly branched out into other areas professionally, such as penciling, painting, and authoring two instructional books on comic book art. In addition, Tom has added photography to his resume in recent years with his commercial work for catalogs and portraits of glamour and fitness models.
Along with writer/artist Keith Champagne, Tom is the co-creator of the successful Kickstarter hit comic book The Switch which eventually got published by Dynamite Comics. They also worked on Titan Books’s 2-issue miniseries WWE Heroes: Undertaker. And speaking of wrestling, Tom designed NXT Wrestling star Tommaso Ciampa’s Blackheart design, logo, and gear.
Currently, Tom is doing concept/storyboard art for television, most noticeably as a main artist for CBS’s hit series Big Brother.
In his spare time, Tom teaches art online, runs photography lighting workshops, lifts weights, and plans his next areas of travel.
