Hello! Wow, HeroesCon was so much fun this year and exhausting. Took me a couple of days to recuperate from it. I guess starting it out with lack of sleep really didn't help either, but I got through it. I was able to get through a good portion of the commissions that I took on, but I still have a stack to get through this week. For those of you that I said I will mail back, I'm working on them as fast as I can. I'm hoping to have them finished up by the end of the week to mail back to everyone. I can't thank everyone enough who came by the table and took a look at our art. We even got some professionals to come by and give us some pretty good feed back. I posted some of the better looking commissions that I did at the show. Sorry they are so blurry, I only had my camera to capture them. If anyone would like to send me scans of any of these please do. I would love to have a better record of them.
Since I was working pretty much the whole time I didn't get to walk around the con like I wanted. Which is probably a good thing since I didn't spend as much money as I usually do. I did however get around to see Dustin Nguyen, where I was able to pick up one of my favorite pictures that he did of all the red haired women of comics and he even did a small head sketch of Batman. I also met a really cool colorist named Rico Renzi, check out his awesome body of work. He commissioned the Batgirl picture (above), which is great because I was able to do some more shading work instead of just coloring it in with markers. I had a good mix of commissions this time around. Well enough talk, need to get back to work. I will post up the pictures as I finish them. Thanks again to everyone that stopped by the table to say hello. Can't wait for next years show.

Heroes Con this weekend

Thor, Photoshop CS3, 11x17", 2009.

I'm finished and ready to head out the door to Charlotte. Took me all day to finish this Thor up and get my sketchbook printed, but all is done and ready for sale. I only printed 15 books, so we will see how they do. Never done one before so I hope people will be interested in them. The con officially starts tomorrow at 11:00 am, so I'm off to the hotel now. Hope to meet a ton of really cool fans and artist. If you are in the area please stop by the convention and say hi.
(Artist Alley, table SP-340). Later.

Psylocke now in color

Psylocke, Photoshop CS3, 9x12", 2009.

Here is the final colors for my Psylocke piece. Wish I had more time to come up with a better background, but I needed to close the door on this one. I have Thor left to color up before leaving for the Heroes Con this weekend. I'm also trying to finish up a little 2009 Sketchbook for this years show. It will probably end up being 20 pages or so with mostly line art and some commission work that I've done from the past year or so. I will post more about it later.

The other exciting news, at least I think of it as pretty cool, is that my Nightcrawler piece was chosen to be on the Daily Devaitions page on Devaint That blew my mind, never even knew about that before. I have gotten a ton of responses since they posted that up, it's amazing how many people are on that site.
Keep checking back for more updates. HeroesCon is just 3 days away and counting. Come visit us at table SP-340 in the artist alley.

Psylocke, Blue pencil on bristol, 9x12", 2009.

Been a week or so since I last updated, so I thought I'd share this Psylocke that I just finished up. I haven't decided if I want the glowy hand thing or not, I'll fix it when I go to color it. Hopefully will have this ready as a print for Heroes Con. (Just a week left yahh!) And just a reminder I will be set up in artist alley with a couple of friends of mine, Adam and Kim, table SP-340. Please come by and take a look at our stuff, we all have tons of new work to show off. And if you are looking to get any commissions done, shoot me an email so I know what references to bring with me to the show. I still have a lot of work to finish so keep checking back, Later.
