Bio:
Melvin Ylagan’s journey from amateur artist to pro began at the age of 22 after meeting Joe Quesada at Chameleon Comics in Manhattan, NYC. Melvin was soon hired to draw some backgrounds for Ash published by Event Comics. Melvin then pursued his art education at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) under a partial scholarship (thanks to Joe’s letter of recommendation). After graduating, Melvin landed small illustration jobs including textile designs, archival restorations, independent comic shorts, and RPG game illustrations. He became an assistant to Robert l. Benney (Master Illustrator, war correspondent artist, and good friend of Norman Rockwell and J.C Lyendecker). In 1995, Melvin launched his first creator-owned comic entitled Gothis.

Frustrated by the art field in general; Melvin tried out his skills in advertising by approaching Neal Adams and was soon hired as a commercial artist for Adam’s Continuity Studios. There, he learned the craft of advertising, which still influences his art today.
Several years after working with Neal, Melvin was hired as a full-time artist by Mary Nitollo (president of The Studio). Five years after working for The Studio, Melvin decided to go back to Neal Adams because of the freedom to do both advertising and comics. Since then, Melvin has done cover work for Guild Works Publications, including their launch of the 21st century horror anthology, Psychosis! Other publishers that Melvin has done covers for include the Comicbook Artists Guild, Copious Amounts Press, KASO Comics, and Vexed Comics.

Melvin is currently working in the ad field while working on the last issue of his creation Gothis, and recently released a new 64-page graphic novel featuring his other characters Jaz N Hip with his co-publisher Ray Felix (creator of O.D).
