George D. Sukara (b. 1948)

Illustrator, Animator, Storyboard Artist, Art Teacher
Born June 13, 1948, Ohio?

The Bellerophon Network seems to have employed a lot of people associated with movies, radio, and television, including Harlan Ellison, Michael P. Hodel, Brinke Stevens, Dave Stevens, Overton Loyd, and Ro H. Kim. George D. Sukara is included in that list. According to the Internet Movie Database, he began working in animation as an assistant animator on The Black Cauldron (1985). That movie was released shortly after the first Bellerophon issue of Weird Tales came out in the fall of 1984. Mr. Sukara had two illustrations in the Fall 1984 issue, for stories by Stephen King and Larry Tritten. You can see his movie credits at the aforementioned database.

Update (Oct. 5, 2016): Mike Tuz informs me that George D. Sukara is, in addition to being an animator, an art teacher. In fact, Mr. Sukara is teaching an introduction to cartooning beginning tomorrow at the Peninsula Art Academy in Peninsula, Ohio. Follow this link for more information. Thanks to Mike Tuz for the tip.
