Did ya Blink? Bordin Marsinkul made our Wonder Woman of the Week.

   Our Wonder Woman of the Week comes from speed artist Bordin Marsinkul, AKA Hyperbooster
   In addition to having a pretty cool name, he's also got some serious talent.   Born in San Francisco and raised in Thailand, he's the mind behind Hyperbooster Studio, where he combines his love for manga-style artwork with a passion for brushstrokes and calligraphy.  He is a busy man, doing as many as four conventions a month.  In 2009 he created his own convention: Hyper-Con, an Anime, Video Game & Pop Culture Convention in the San Mateo, Calif. area.  
   We met him at Emerald City Comicon where he did commissions for myself, our guy Scott and a couple bazillion other people.  His signature style for commissions at conventions is a "while-you-wait," speed demon flash of pencils, pens, and even white-out.  The result is layered, almost three-dimensional and a shit-ton of fun to watch. 

Elapsed time: something like 11 seconds.  At least, it felt that fast.

Check out his website, Hyperbooster Studios. And Hyperboosters' Facebook.
