R.E.M. Artist Zsombor Huszka: Welcome to the Family

It is with a lot of excitement, and a bit of sadness, that I am announcing Zsombor Huszka as the artist on the graphic novel R.E.M. 

For those of you who have been reading this blog regularly for some time, you may remember I announced Budi Setiawan as the artist a few months ago.  However, Budi was diagnosed with cancer.  We waited it out… he went into remission – but then it came back almost immediately.  He’s very weak and unable to draw. My prayers go out to him and his family as he battles that monster. As soon as he’s back up and drawing we’ll find another project to work on. He’s an extremely talented artist (and the cousin of Sigit Nugroho, who is drawing Chasing Rabbits).  Sigit actually credits Budi with teaching him how to draw.  That’s one artistic family…

Hailing from Hungary, Zsombor is ready to throw R.E.M. into a rear naked choke and dominate. Yes, an artist who also does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  He actually received his degree in architecture from Budapest University of Technology andEconomics’ Department of Architecture. After his first art exhibit in 2010, he waschosen to participate at The National Exhibition of Digital Artworks.  He has worked on projects for a variety ofHungarian pop-stars and illustrated Hungarian advertising campaigns. He is currently working on the music videofor pop-star Linda Kiraly, as well as writing and illustrating the graphicnovel The Sultan’s Beast.  Although currently a BJJ fanatic, Zsombor was a professional fencer – on the Hungarian National Fencing Team.

We will eventually have to roll together.  Until then, we are going to make an amazing graphic novel. Here are some of his previous works…
