Power-Con / ThunderCon is kicking off our 2012 guest list with the attendance of Rudy Obrero and Lynne Lipton!
You will recognize the legendary Masters of the Universe illustrator Rudy Obrero from such works as the original box art featured on the Battle Cat packaging. Obrero has even returned to work on Masters of the Universe Classics, providing the box art to the new Wind Raider and the maps that come with the MOTUC subscriptions.
Mr. Obrero’s versatility is evident in the full spectrum of work he does for his broad range of clients. He is the style guide artist for E.T., Woody Woodpecker, Peter Pan, The Scorpion King, The Mummy Returns, Universal Monsters, Curious George, Sitting Ducks and The Power Rangers. Rudy’s art has even expanded to other countries as he has done art for businesses in Japan, and England. He designed the exclusive Liberian Millennium Silver Dollar coin. His recent projects have included posters for The Cat in the Hat and Digimon The Movie.
Ms. Lipton is a talented film, stage, screen, and voice actress who worked on the original ThunderCats cartoon series. She brought one of the most popular ThunderCats alive, Cheetara, by providing her voice during the entire series run. In addition to Cheetara, Ms. Lipton also provided the voices for Luna of the Lunatacs, Willa Queen of the Warrior Maidens, Mandora, and Wilykit. More recently Ms. Lipton returned to her roots by once again providing the voice of Cheetara for Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story.
