Professor June Brigman awarded Inkpot Award at SDCC

As we all know, June Brigman is a professor here in the SEQA department. She went to Comic-con international this year and left with a big smile and a little something extra. (pictured below) 

June was awarded an Inkpot award this year at Comic-Con International for Achievement in Comic Art.

Local to Atlanta, June worked her way through the industry, producing comics for big publishers and small alike. She started out at AC Comics in 1983 doing a sample story for Astron, which AC would publish in 1986. From there she worked her way to DC and later, Marvel doing pencils for Power Pack #1-17. 

Professor Brigman reflecting on her time on Power Pack at Comic-Con International 2014.

June took over the Chicago Tribune's strip Brenda Starr in 1995 and saw it to the end in 2011. All this and she is still making history, passing on her knowledge to the next generation of comic artists here at SCAD: Atlanta. With a rich  past and a bright future, June has done more than earned a place among the Inkpot stars! We're so, so proud of her. Congrats June!!
