The 2017 Inkwell Awards ballot is currently open!

For many years I have been proud to serve as a member of the nominations committee to the Inkwell Awards, a comic book award created by inkers for inkers. It seems as though more and more artists are opting to render the inking on their book themselves rather than employing a separate person as their inker (either from preference or financial necessity). For this reason, it is all the more important to honour the field of inking and those inkers whose embellishments enhance the work of the pencilers they uplift.

For that reason, I strongly encourage you to vote in the 2017 ballot at the Inkwell Awards website! The more people who get involved and identify their favourite inkers, the better the feedback to the community of inking professionals in the comic book industry. Go vote now!
