Inkbot is a unique bunch of characters.Spear-headed by the website's creative director Christian Rubiano the site has steadily gathered momentum over the years with a pure passion and determination that comic books are not dead but rather in a state of transition.
You see they understand and love comics with a passion!
The comic industry is an over saturated industry with a rather small fanbase.So why knowing this would you even try to "break" into the industry?Simple-you love comics! And if you don't love comics then don't get involved in the industry!
If the comic industry is to stay healthy and alive then there needs to be genuine passion,diversity and talent.
Jan Velazquez is the series' artist on Inkbot's Genesis.He is a struggling artist(and don't let artists who have "made it" tell you the starving artist is a myth!Or that "they aren't good enough then".That is complete crap!...says me on my last piece of toast)who puts his heart and soul into his work.
I mean the guy was on dialysis,needing a kidney and all he could think about was creating his best work.Because Jan is passionate about what he does!
So if you haven't got a genuine love for comics step aside!
You can read Genesis here-

Oh yeah,here's some promo work I created for the series.
Thanks to Christian and Jan for great inspiration!
