Thomas Gianni has been doing Comic Con for 20 years, but this is only his second year in Artists Alley. He trained as an artist at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and still lives there. His character, Mechanic Anna, is soon to be a graphic novel, sometime in late fall. Thomas also teaches at Columbia Collage in Chicago and he teaches online art history courses for the Academy of Art in San Francisco and he’s the courtroom artist for WGN, NBC, and CNN in Chicago. He covered the Rod Blagojevich trial. Thomas is a very busy man, but still makes time to do his own artwork.
