Help, ID the artist/signature?

About seven years ago I attended a construction industry convention (CONEXPO-CON/AGG) in Las Vegas where the Toshiba booth had an artist doing caricatures. Although there’s a good chance the artist has nothing to do with comics I would still like to identify the artist if possible.

I just got this Spider-Man headshot jam started by another collector and am trying to identify the artists.

Three of them are Pablo Marcos, Michael Zeck, and Glenn Fabry obviously. Who are the other three? One looks like "EMEK '17!", one is "Craig" something, and one I can't tell either the glyph or signature- something D... Ross?

I have no idea who the artist of this is but the signature looks like it may say "Vela." I have a coworker named Vela, but the only art he's good at is con. LOL!

top middle - Ed McGuinness

lower right - Dave Ross

Craig Young ??

I can see how the bottom middle could be read as "Craig Young," but I can't find a comic book artist by that name. Anyone have a lead?

Bam! That's it! Thanks so much.

OK, now for the other one I got. It has Rodney Ramos on the top tier, and Kevin Conrad and Bob Wiacek on the bottom tier. But who are the two artists in the middle?

Mike Manley above Bob Wiacek, maybe ? Looks like his classic "M" signature.

I'm not familiar with Manley, but in some examples I found, he writes out his signature:

Whereas the Batgirl example looks more like stylized initials:

Is it KRM maybe?

For the Batgirl jam, middle left looks like older stylized signature of Marcus To (https://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=1249022) and the middle right looks like Dean Kotz (https://www.instagram.com/deankotz/). Both are style matches as well.

Thanks so much! Never in a million years would I have figured either of those out.

My pleasure. I love these kinds of questions and I was happy I was able to help.
