Wizard World Chicago!

I'll be out at Wizard World Chicago August 6-9th in the Artist's Alley area at table #3534.
Be sure to come by and say "hi"! I'll be doing sketches all weekend and we should have plenty of comics, sketchbooks as well as copies of the 3 Lunchnotes collections for sale.

I'll also be doing sketches at the Hero Initiative booth on Friday August 7, from 2:30-4:30

Post #701, now with body modification!

Wow, I just realized that yesterday was my 700th blog post. Yeesh!
Okay, so while my head is still swollen from San Diego, and that 700th post accomplishment, how 'bout we celebrate with a photo instead of a sketch today?
This shot of Black Bolt is, at least to my knowledge, the first time anyone has had needles and ink repeatedly poked into their skin using one of my drawings as inspiration. Thanks, Pat!

Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #3 on stands TODAY!

Be sure to pick up a copy Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #3 when you're out at the comic shop today, okay?
Here are a few pages of designs from my sketchbook to give you a taste of what Peter Tomasi and I, aided by the amazing John Kalisz on colors, did with our 12 page Kilowog story.

Heroes Con: Logan & Kitty

This sketch was the prize for the Hero Initiative raffle Laura and I had at our table at Heroes Con. Congrats again to Ben, who snagged this piece, and a big thanks to all of you who entered. Hero is a great cause and I'm really happy that, with everyone's help, we were able to help collect a donation during the show.

Just a reminder, I'll be out at Wizard World Chicago August 6-9 and I still have room on my pre-order sketch list. If you'd like to have a sketch worked up for your before the show all the info is right here.

Heroes Con: Batman on a roof... again

And here is the LAST of the scans I have for Heroes Con sketches. Thanks again to all of you who picked up a sketch, and to all you out there on the internets leaving all the ego-swelling comments on these posts. I'm trying to get better about writing back, but I DO read all of them and I really appreciate you all taking the time to give me your thoughts on my work.

Okay, onward and upward! What'll I post TOMORROW?!!

Heroes Con: DK Bats vs Supes

With this Dark Knight style Batman vs Superman we're only a few post away from the last of my sketches done for folks out at Heroes Con. (Unless any of you out there still have scans that is).
Have a great weekend, all.

Heroes Con: Thing vs Terrax

A clash of rocky titans, eh?

Anyway, hope to see some of you out at the San Diego show, which I'll be heading out to in just a few hours, I won't have a table but I'll be the guy with a big grin on his face, slightly hidden under a beard perhaps, with a newsboy cap on.
If you see me in a crowd come say "Hi", okay?
Oh, and I should have a few copies of this year's sketchbook and Lunchnotes on me if you've got some money burning a hole in your pocket:)

Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #1 on stands TODAY!

Hey folks, be sure to pick up your copy of Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps#1 when you head out to the comic shop today!

Below are the first 2 pages of the Mongul 6-pager that Peter Tomasi penned and I illustrated. These were snagged from the preview over at IGN.COM

Heroes Con: Godzilla vs King Kong and Robin... with Cereal?

This drawing of Robin has been posted here before but I just had to post this latest version of the drawing since at the show I was asked to add the cereal bowl.

Heroes Con: The Demon and Cloak & Dagger

As of yesterday, I have started taking pre-orders for con sketches for Wizard World Chicago. Get on the sketch list early and skip those pesky early morning con lines, kids!

Wizard World Chicago - Sketch Pre-Orders

I'll be attending Wizard World in Chicago on August 6-9, 2009 and am accepting pre-orders for con sketches.

My con sketch prices for 2009 are:

$50 for a single character in B&W on 9 x 12 bristol
$75 for two characters (on 1 page) in B&W on 9 x 12 bristol

All sketches will be personalized, no exceptions. This list is ONLY for sketches I can get done before the show. Do not email me if you want a sketch in your sketchbook, please come see me as soon as possible at the show.

If you know you will be attending Wizard World Chicago and would like a sketch please drop me a line with your sketch request, my email address is in my profile. Please use "CHICAGO SKETCH LIST" as the subject for the email.

I will most likely only be taking on about 8 sketches each day of the show so I can make each one as good as possible. Hopefully getting on the list will ensure that anyone who'd like a sketch can get one, and this way there's less wait for all you nice folks.

Heroes Con: Batman two-fer

Since I've still got quite a few sketches that I did folks out at Heroes Con I figured I'd go ahead and post two of 'em each day this week.
Two, two, TWO times the sketches this week!!

Heroes Con: Lady Blackhawk & Huntress

Have a great weekend, folks. Be sure to check back here on Monday for our next sketch from Heroes Con!

Heroes Con: Godzilla vs Red Ronin

I have to be honest I've never read any of Marvel's Godzilla comics. It appears that his model skewed a bit closer to the animated series than his theatrical counterpart since they went with green (Godzilla is grey folks, really). Anyway, Marvel or no, I'll gladly take any opportunity to draw the big guy.

Heroes Con: Longshot & Mojo

Yup... Longshot and Mojo. I had a joke prepared for this post... but I haven't put enough coffee in my tank yet and can't seem to remember it. Oh well. Happy hump-day, kids.

Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Heroes Con: Red Skull

Have you all read Captain America: Reborn yet? It's so dang good it hurts.

Monday, July 06, 2009

Heroes Con: 'nother Batman

How about we start this second week full of Heroes Con sketches with another Batman sketch, eh?

Friday, July 03, 2009

Heroes Con: Amethyst...Princess of Gemworld

Laura thinks it's funny that I call Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld "Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld". That's just what I always called her when I was a kid. I had the habit of calling characters by their comic or cartoon titles. I used to call He-Man "He-Man, Master of the Universe" for the love of Pete.
Anyway, have a great weekend folks.

Heroes Con: Alpha One & Cole

Above is actually the first time I've drawn characters from the Mighty for a con sketch. First time, WOOT!

Also, in case you didn't make it out to your comic shop, yesterday saw the release of The Mighty #6.
Here a few pages, colored by the brilliant John Kalisz, as well as Dave Johnson's cover to give you a bit of a taste.

Heroes Con: Buffy vs Freddy

Man, I'd kill to draw a Buffy comic! Maybe not a Buffy vs Freddy comic but Buffy would be a total blast.
