“INTRODUCED in 1976, the Eagles are the comics industry’s longest established awards. Acknowledged as the pre-eminent international prizes, they have been featured on the covers of leading US and UK titles across the last 30 years. Unique in that they reflect the people’s choice, the Eagle Awards comprise of two distinct stages.” – Eagle Award website
The Eagle Awards have been around for some time. And with them being around for a while, they know a thing or two about the comic industry and the creators in it.
Which brings me to this gentleman, Jeff Balke. He’s a colorist for Zenescope Entertainment, Moonstone and others. He’s worked on titles such as Grimm Fairy Tales, Tales from Wonderland, Charmed, Hack/Slash, Zombies vs Cheerleaders and many more. Needless to say, he’s a busy guy..lol!
I’d like to ask you and we’d like to ask you to vote for Jeff Balke for the Favorite Colorist Eagle Award. He’s not a big wig at Marvel or DC, but working his way up. I’ve talked with Jeff on more than one occasion at shows or just chatting online. He’s just a very down to earth guy. If anyone deserved this award, its him. He’s really worked hard.
So go to the Eagle Award site, go to question #8 (Favorite Colorist) and vote for Jeff Balke. He really deserves this award.
Keep it up Jeff..and don’t ever stop!
