Art Show, Updates, Cons, & Commissions

It’s been a while and I’ve been incredibly busy. So busy that my own blog has been horribly neglected and I’ve added an assistant to help me manage some of my workload. So if you get an email from Holly, know she’s with me! She’s been shepherding my requests, coordinating my schedule, and helping with my mailings among other things.


Art Showing
:  for those relatively local or willing to travel, I’m showing a number of originals and will have those and some prints for sale at the Still Life Gallery in Ellicott City, Maryland. I did some live art and signing on October 26th at the gallery, which was quite fun and thanks to everyone who came out!  Art and prints will be available at the gallery through the 3rd of November.

Projects: Currently I’m working on a really fun project with the talented Brandon Seifert called Supernatural Geographic that will knock your socks off! Below is a page from the comic. Also, I’m finishing some page work on a brilliant series idea oriented in the world of H.P. Lovecraft. More on that one when I can share what we’ve been developing. Additionally, I’ve been doing some Marvel work I can’t discuss other than its a lot of fun, and I’m working on Grimm, a Dynamite Entertainment project based on the hit NBC TV series that is a ton of fun! I recently contributed chapter heads and a cover to a short story anthology called 1920 with some talented friends, and I wrapped a large poster piece for the band I Fight Dragons that I’ll be able to share soon. I am still creating covers for Off Registration as well. So busy busy busy…

Conventions: I have had a super fun convention season and have met so many wonderful people on my travels.  New York Comic Con was the last con I had on my list for this year, though I’m already making plans for next year’s, and I’m really looking forward to finally setting up at Emerald City Comic Con out in Seattle. If you missed me at a convention this year, I hope to see you at one in 2014! If you were looking for a commission at a con, see below…

Commissions: I am currently opening up my holiday commissions. There are limited slots and I guarantee pieces before the holiday if  submitted by November 15. I generally book up quickly, so if you’re interested in a piece for a loved one or for yourself, send a note early! You will get a reply with rates and sizes and an estimated date of completion.

Projects & Commissions Update

I’ve updated the personal website – removing many older pieces (there will be more removed over the coming week), and adding many new pieces to all galleries. I hope to have the entire site updated over the next week, with a new section added in a month for an upcoming project. More on that later. Below are some of the new commission pieces I’ve added as well as personal pieces that will be added to the print gallery soon. Additionally I hope to have my Con Schedule listed soon – it will appear on the sidebar menu as well with the site update.

Outland Collective

Many of you will note the new banner on the right – I have joined the Outland Collective along with some art pals and have begun posting pieces there monthly as well as this month’s First Friday piece, Seven Devils. The First Friday pieces will be prints in the near future so keep an eye out for that link soon in the sidebar. Every third Monday of the month I’ll have a new challenge piece there.

Projects

I’ve been working on a few new projects recently; a couple I hope to be able to talk about soon. I have also been plugging away at RELAUNCH chapter 2 with Ron Perazza, and I recently wrapped production on zombie sword blade designs for Neptune Trading. When I have one in my hand expect pictures and a link to purchase them.  Because of the projects I am currently working on, commissions are closed for me until mid March, before coming conventions. Those commissions I do post over this month are pieces I’ve had on my list already. And now – back to work!

Heroes 2011, PR, & Stuff

Heroes was a blast and easily placed itself among my favorite cons. I didn’t expect the overwhelming number of commissions and folks buying originals. Drawing day and night was crazy but fun, and according to fellow artists, par for the course at Heroes. Don’t get me wrong – no artist will ever complain about having too much to draw:). There were so many kind people who stopped by my table and struck up conversation, and I got the opportunity to meet and hang out with artists I’ve admired for years. I got to have lunch with one commissioner, and the Drink and Draw was a lot of fun. I was able to get a few of my favorite commissions taken care of at the pizza shop over beers and laughs. At the Live Auction my donated Kitty and Lockheed piece went for $350, and I had the opportunity on the final day of the  con to sketch and draw with Dean Trippe of Project Rooftop, and Chris Moreno – both a lot of fun to work alongside over breakfast.

Also, coming out of Heroes; I am now with representation. Lastly – My redesigns of the New Mutants are now up on PR. Check out set 1 here and click back soon for set 2.

Upcoming Cons, Commissions, & Projects Update

So much has happened since my last update, I scarcely know where to start. I’ve already been to two very busy and fun cons this year – Chicago’s C2E2 and one of the four Virginia Comic Cons. Here is my nearly postive Con schedule for the rest of the year:

  • Boston Comic Con
  • Virginia Comic Con (x2)
  • Heroes (Charlotte)
  • Baltimore Comic Con (BCC)
  • Dragon Con (Atlanta)
  • New York Comic Con (NYCC

I will be selling my sketchbooks while supplies last and hope to have my new Tolkien-oriented ThereAndBackAgain sketchbook ready for this coming Boston Comic Con where I will be doing commissions with Bobby Timony (Night Owls) and Ian Struckhoff (Black Label Comics). I will also have a few prints and bookmarks to sell as well. If you would like a commission at the con, I am opening the pre-con sketches now for Boston. Send me a note here for pricing.

So what have I been up to? I have been pitching various projects and am hard at work on a personal project I am considering turning into a web series. I promise more on this after I return from Boston, and with luck I’ll have more info about the pitches to share.

Dwarven Map! A project I worked on at the begining of the year has been printed and is available for a donation to a wonderful community, The Middle-earth network. Click here to learn more!

Lastly – Newish work – Below are a smattering of new pieces – commissions mostly, prints, and various bits over the last few months. I will do my best to post more frequently here when I update work on the various other networks, and will add these to the linked pages in the various galleries.

Project Rooftop: Captain America

Project Rooftop: Captain America

Here’s my entry I submitted for Project Rooftop: Captain America. Reinventing an icon is tough. This was after a few doodling and was done with copic sketch brush and digital color. Cross your fingers! If I have time I’m going to try and do these when they announce them. A cool excercise.
