Post C2E2

Monday Morning and recovering from C2E2. It was a blast, albeit, a bit expensive to have the con so close to Downtown Chicago, but Man, what a view. Setup on Thursday was extra nice, being sunny and 80. The rest of the weekend was also sunny, but a bit on the nippy side. That's Chicago for you. ;)

I kept some friends company who went to the Kick Ass premiere at River East. They didn't have tickets, just wanted autographs (which they got, though they look more like squiggles to me. :P) from Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz. Fun and interesting to hang out though. Ate out at P.J. Craig's after and drew on the butcher paper while waiting for mah Chicken Pot Pie(!).

The con itself was good for a first time, I hope they continue and put pressure on WW. Getting down from Downtown Chicago to McCormick place was a bit of a hassle on Friday with the morning rush, but Saturday and Sunday was easier getting the shuttle and moving on the roads. Even though I only live about 50 minutes away, I don't get into Chicago nearly enough as I'd like to. I love taking pics of the buildings. Though I think I need a new camera, one that takes better long exposures for night shots. But a Big Thank You to the C2E2 staff for putting me on their list for Artist Alley. :)

On to Sketches! I had a fun time doing these, Jesse Quick (though I did have an idea for "Flashing," maybe have to do that later. ;) ) Did some Magic for Johnny in the form of an Anime Schoolgirl, a PPG sketch for John Metych's (Sniper and Rook) son, and a nice Animated Batgirl. There's one other commish, but that's NSFW, and I didn't get a pic of the Stick Figure I drew for some guy's sketchbook theme. A lot of free quickie sketches went out to Kids on Kids Sunday.

I did take a couple of commishs to do at home, just to do a better inking job on it with mah pro tools. And I did get another Bunny pic mostly pencilled out, this one of Ms. Marvel to compliment the one I have in mind for Rogue. I'll post those when I get them done, or should I?? Noone would buy the book then. :P

Anyhoo, back at home and had a great time at C2E2! :)

Marvel Heroes

New work (maybe some semi regular work) comes in the form of inking over one of my favorite pencilers John Royle. This is a cover for UK's Marvel Heroes mag, I'm not sure what issue number. Still being done old school, traditional inks over blueline. Still not ready to jump to the Cintiq.

C2E2 is coming around Chicago this weekend, I hope we get a good turnout being it's the first one. The room we're in faces the Lake, so at least we'll have some nice calming scenery to look at. I hear it might rain, that's too bad because it'd be really nice for congoers to take a break outside. :)

I've also gotten word that Jeff and I will not be Guests this year at Anime Central, though we'll pop our heads in to spend some bucks and talk to the Con peeps about next year. Sorry to the regular fans that normally get us to do some fun sketches at Acen, I am accepting Mail Order commissions for those who don't want to miss out.

ThoughtCrime Hits the UK

A friend sent this article to me, thought I'd share. Scary thought to possibly be put in jail for drawing something... :/

Article from The Register

So, technically, I can be Arrested and Jailed for drawing or owning Image 1, but not for Image 2. What's the deal with that?? (PS, if you're in the UK, might be good not to Save Image 1 ;-) )

Post Planet Comicon and Other Stuff!

Well, I hope everyone had a happy Easter Weekend (I know I'm up a couple bucks from playing Pool. mmm Money from friends is Deleecious! ;P) I also watched Sherlock Holmes and came away with thinking it a pretty darn good flick. A bit CGI-looking in parts, but lots of nice textures for old London, and a different take on the Holmes character.

Planet Comicon came and went and turned out to be one of the best times I've had at a con. Many thanks to Chris and Sidne for having us out again. Talking to many artists at the show, it turns out that I should be buying a Cintiq, but I'm not sure I'm ready to take the jump (financially or workwise). One fact being that creating digital art, there are no originals to sell. I asked Phil Noto how much he wanted for his Batgirl/Roxy Rocket cover. He shook his head and said sadly, "All digital, man." FFFUUUUUUUUUU.... :P Aw well... But anyhoo, the con was a lot of fun, had some interesting commissions to do as you see below.

Right after Planet Comicon I got sick, a sore throat which turned into congestion which still lingers but slowly getting back to full speed. So I just finished another commission, this one being Lara Croft, ahem kinda Busty. ;)
Professional work has dried up for a couple months now, I'll have to find out what's going on with the Johnny DC books and if there's something there. If not, I'm going to have to hunt down some new editors that still like traditional inks. :/ In the meantime, I still got a couple commissions to do, and I still have a lot of pieces to do for my Bunnies of Steel Book. If anyone has a character they want as a Playboy Bunny, drop me a line. ;) Here's the 2 that I got done so far. Enjoy!
