Science & Fantasy Fiction Art Inspiration Contest


Melvin Costiniano

Melvin Costiniano, Comic ArtistI'm a 36-year-old caregiver living in Apache Junction, AZ. I'm happily married to Rita, 10 years now, with our energetic and sweet son, Randall, age 7.

I trained at Whilce Portacio's Comic Creation Course way back in 1999. I have been drawing long before that as a hobby.

My family inspired me to give the comics dream another go. And, that's how I found the ScienceandFantasyFiction.com art contest.

My favorite authors/writers are Geoff Johns (Green Lantern), Chris Claremont (X-men: The Dark Phoenix Saga, Wolverine), Neil Gaiman (The Sandman), Anne Rice (The Queen Of The Damned), J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord Of The Rings saga).

My favorite artists are Jim Lee (X-men, Batman, Justice League), Whilce Portacio (X-factor, Uncanny X-men), Marc Silvestri (Wolverine, The Darkness), Nobuhiro Watsuki (Rurouni Kenshin).

I thank God Almighty and everyone, friends and family both here and in the Philippines, who voted for me.

I love science fiction and fantasy because your imagination can run wild and free.
