Featured Artist: Stephanie Besco

Stephanie Besco is a new artist coming all the way from San Diego, California here for Texas Tech and is showing for the first time in Lubbock at Star Books & Comics Downtown! Both her and her sister, Stacey, are part of TigerBomb!

Her favorite things to work on are portraits and says she's been drawing since she could remember. "I went to the Art Institute for a year but didn't learn anything worth all the money...so I decided to take a hiatus from art by joining the Navy for 6 years and now I'm trying to get back into it in my free time...I really enjoy meeting new artist friends and very much look forward to being active in the Lubbock artist community with all the local rad talent out here!"

Stephanie is one of Lubbock-con's new Featured Artists as well and will have one of her pieces at Alamo Drafthouse November 12th for a Flash Gordon showing as well as Timeless Custom Frames & Art Gallery December 3rd with the other Lubbock-Con Featured Artists for a one night exhibit! The gallery is located at 3501 50th St. #112 in the Mission Plaza, off of 50th St. and Indiana.

For now, you can go by Star Books and Comics 916 16th Street, Thursday-Saturday from 2-8pm. She has two paintings up for our Halloween Artist Collective show including "You Fight or You Die" and "I Have to Return Some Videotapes". Both are available for $150 each. You have absolutely got to see them in person and they'll be up until the end of the month!
