HeroesCon 2015 - Final

Here are the last of the pieces done for or at HeroesCon. If I didn't include yours it just means I neglected/forgot to take a picture at the show or scan it in advance. If you have a picture/scan of the art that you would like me to share send it to me. Enjoy!

Black Cat - Warm Up Sketch

A warm up sketch from this morning that got just a bit more complicated than planned. Went in with an ink brush and some white acrylic paint on this one. You can own the original if you like. Check out the Art for Sale page.

The Joker - Commission

This Joker was commissioned as a companion piece to a Harley Quinn I did last year. I'm really pleased with how the Joker came out here. I have always found him a difficult character to get right. While some might think it's not a "home run", it could be considered a stand up "triple". Get it? See the baseball bat? :)

This is also the last commission on my list. I had a few outstanding big pieces that are now finished and shipped. The last of the Conventionless Convention Sketches (CCS) are done. And now this piece. Interesting not to have sketches to be done.

And speaking of sketches, I will be updating my commission prices and convention rates very shortly. I haven't raised any prices in about 8 years or so and everything else has gone up. Especially travel and conventions. So I hope that everyone understands.

I've already been asked when I will be doing another round of CCSs. That will start at the beginning of March. I will be opening a sketch list for MegaCon for people attending and take a few CCSs for those that are not. Stay tuned.

Joker was done in acrylic on illustration board.

MegaCon 2014 - Post Game Show

Wow, what a show MegaCon turned out to be. Record breaking attendance. Lots of nice folks. And a fun weekend. Thanks to everyone who came by to say "hi" and to all those that picked up some art, print or books. Below is a sampling of the art I did for the show, both before and during. I missed taking pictures of most of them so I hope they show up somewhere on the web.

Looking forward to next year. Onward to HeroesCon in June!

Secret Avengers - Sketch Cover

Squeezed in another sketch cover in between my advance sketches for HeroesCon. I will be putting this  up on eBay later tonight.

Speaking of HeroesCon, it's coming up really fast. Next week at this time I should be almost halfway there. Driving takes a bit of time but it means I can bring as much as I want and not deal with air travel restrictions. And the groping that goes with it.

I am down to my last two HeroesCon advance sketches. I have time to add a few more so if you or someone you know would like a sketch from me just let me know. I will be starting a new list at the show so there is always that option. Details are here for the advance sketch list.

Art was created with ink, Copic marker and acrylic on official Marvel sketch cover stock.
