Comic book artist and illustrator

Born in 1975, Cameron Stewart is a comic book artist and illustrator from Toronto who has worked for DC, Marvel, and Dark Horse Comics, among others.

Early Career

Cameron Stewart began practicing his craft in 1999 when he was called upon to create storyboard illustrations for the Sony/Dreamworks Animation series Men In Black, which was based on the popular film franchise and directed by Darwyn Cooke, Stewart’s longtime mentor. This assignment was followed by a portfolio review session at San Diego Comic Con in 1999 after which he was hired by DC Comics to draw an issue of Scooby Doo, his first experience drawing comics and the beginning of what would evolve into a long career with DC.

The 2000’s

Cameron Stewart spent the early 2000’s collaborating with some of the industry’s top writers. He worked with Ed Brubaker on the superhero-noir series Catwoman, based on the Batman villain, and re-teamed with Morrison on the absurdist superhero fantasy series Seaguy as well as its sequel, Seaguy: Slaves of Mickey Eye. Stewart and Morrison also worked together on The Manhattan Guardian — part of the epic Seven Soldiers series — along with Batman and Robin, Batman Incorporated, and Multiversity: Thunderworld, the team’s interpretation of the Shazam character.

In 2007, Cameron visited Vietnam to do research for his Vietnam War graphic novel The Other Side, which he created with writer Jason Aaron. One year later, he began work on his long-form graphic novel Sin Titulo — a semi-autobiographical noir thriller dealing with family, childhood and memory — that was heavily inspired by the works of David Lynch and Haruki Murakami. He self-published it as a serialized webcomic, eventually winning a 2010 Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic. In 2014 he completed the story and published it as a graphic novel.
