GIJoeCon 2018 Guest Announcement – Mr. Larry Selman

The G.I.Joe Collectors Convention Website has been updated with details on a new guest appearing at GIJoeCon 2018, Mr. Larry Selman

LARRY SELMAN was born in Pennsylvania and raised in a military family. Following graduation from York Academy of Art in 1982, he built a successful career in the illustration field, by collaborating with the top art directors and major publishers in New York and around the United States. Establishing a reputation of excellence, several of his illustrations have received prestigious awards and his illustration work has also appeared on the majority of the G.I. Joe Classic Collection packaging.

Larry was involved with the building of the World War II Memorial in Washington DC. He was asked by lead sculptor Ray Kaskey to provide authentic equipment and historical expertise for the sculpting of the 28 bronze plaques that would line the entrance steps to the Memorial.

Now concentrating solely on historical fine art, his original works can be found at the US Army War College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the Command and General Staff College, Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and on numerous other military bases and museums throughout the United States. Larry is the only artist to depict every era of American military history and every branch of service. He has worked with Medal of Honor recipients: Francis Currey and Mitchell Paige, Ranger legend Leonard Lomell, and the famed Band of Brothers, from generals, and highly decorated soldiers and new recruits.
