Eisner Award Winner Jen Bartel Joins 'Marvel's Voices'

Angélique Roché sits down with the artist at San Diego Comic-Con 2019!

San Diego Comic Con, the biggest event of the year for many Marvel fans, is a great opportunity to catch up with amazing creatives from around the Marvel Universe.

While I had the chance to chat with a number of my favorite writers—John Hickman, Seanan McGuire, and Rainbow Rowell on the Marvel Live stream and stage—I was also able to speak with some of my favorite artists for Marvel’s Voices.

I caught up with career artist, illustrator, and designer Jen Bartel on the last day of SDCC—fresh off her 2019 Eisner Award for Best Cover Artist. Amidst the Eisner excitement and in the middle of a loud and busy con, we had a chance to chat about her journey from commercial artist to embracing her love for comic book illustration, her passion for supporting young artists, and how she approaches covers versus interior art.

Jen Bartel, best known for her ongoing cover work for Marvel, Disney, and Chronicle Books, has also collaborated with brands like Adidas, Red Bull, and Aussie to bring her patented colorful designs to different mediums and campaigns, and Jen is also the co-creator and artist of her own creator-owned comics.

Currently, Jen is creating the cover art for the 80th anniversary anthology series, MARVEL TALES, and you can check out her variant cover for BLACK CAT (2019) #3 in stores now!
