March 2007 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – From vixens to villains, heroes to heroines, creatures to cool things, members of The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Comic Book Club reveal their illustrations and imaginative skills in the college’s Mark K. Wheeler Gallery, April 3-25, free admission.

Sequential Motion is the brainchild of Fort Lauderdale Animation student Nakia Mann. “I hope everyone who comes to the gallery not only sees the art, but appreciates the individuals and their drive behind it. Comics are a valuable asset and outlet for artists and I hope the world realizes that concept.”

The Comic Book Club is comprised of Animation, Visual Effects & Motion Graphics, and Game Art & Design students all looking for an outlet for their creativity and to be with other students exactly like them with the same interests.

I started the club because we can unify ourselves to be successful in our artistic careers,” continues Mann. “I'm extremely thankful for the gallery showing and all the people who support the club. We will work our hardest to make the best of the club and its members to one day make it our business within the industry to make comics.”

Comic Book Club member Jason Brown, of Ft. Lauderdale, says “The club has helped me work in a team-based environment with a goal to produce quality work. It supports me and my ideas to be one who stands for creative freedom and being an example of it. I hope that as artists we can discover ourselves and continue to grow.” Other members showing their art in the show are New Yorkers Chris Olavarria and Siva "Jack" Sernvongsat, from Puerto Rico Karla Ortiz and Korinne Diaz, from Hollywood Mikes Henry, from West Palm Beach Anthony Gregori, and from Uruguay, Montevideo Ariel Cal.
