SpringCon 2012

Another SpringCon has come and gone. TY to the MCBA and all the organizers and supporters for having us out again in Minneapolis.  Their 25th Anniversary is coming up next year and they're saying they're going to "blow the budget" ala Carnivale.  Sounds Exciting. :)  Anyhoo, Sketches!

My Power Girl Bunny print (people just don't get it! :P) didn't do as well as expected but it did generate some interest in commissions for her regular (only!) costume.  One wanted her with her Tabby cat which ended up being a Shoulder Happy Cat, but I did mull over the idea of having it hang from her boob window.  Maybe draw later.
I was also commished to do a Scarlet Witch on one of them Sketch Covers.  Very nice stock to work on if you have a dark lead pencil.  And another artist from the alley asked for a Squall from Final Fantasy.  I made sure to give him dem abs and obliques that women seem to love so much. :D
Finally, my only marker piece for the con was for their Charity Auction donating to the Lupus Foundation or the CBLDF.  I thought it turned out pretty well.  Some lucky person got it for $50, probably should have bid on it myself. :P

We had the traditionally post con dinner with Gordon Purcell who brought along Dan Jurgens and Bob McLeod.  David (Ninja Quiet guy--forget the last name--grr) was there too who has some neat ideas for remarketing and promoting comics.  A very cool dinner indeed.  Next con up--San Diego! *squee!*

Power Girl Bunny

Welp, I finally got a new print colored up.  It took forever and I'm still figuring out how I want to paint.  The Opacity approach is a bit like wrestling with a bear and can lead to over tone modulations and some muddiness. I personally like more cel shaded stuff and will probably look to do more of that in the future.  Anyhoo, I'm off to the printer to see how it looks on paper, looking at 12x18" but possibly 11x14" too.  Hopefully have it for the upcoming SpringCon in Minneapolis, on the weekend of May 19.  Come out and pick one up. ;)
