Smith Micro is sponsoring a comic illustration contest for Aaron D’Errico, son of pro soccer player, David D’Errico. Aaron has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, steering him from his dream of being an athlete toward a new pursuit: comics. He has used his personal aspirations to create soccer superhero character, Ammon Walker, and is holding a contest for comic artists to illustrate his 22-page origin story.
In addition to illustrating the comic and receiving exposure, the winner will receive $2,000 and a complimentary copy of comic illustration software Manga Studio 5 EX. The deadline to submit five-page illustration entries is February 5, 2014. Winners will be announced February 21, 2014.
