Chicago Comic Convention is Coming!

Heya all! So the Great Allentown Comic con came and went with with out a hitch. It was a fun and great show.  It was held at this nifty mall that was a little like a flee market. There was sooooo many cool things to look at (After i was done drawing a ton commissions) I even saw a real Script from the origenal Thundcats cartoon. I got to draw Liara and Tali from Mass Effect, A Sackboy from Little Big Planet, and Bear Jew from Inglorious Basterd just to name a few. While there I ran into Dave Rankin of Effigy Skateboards. Dave is a great guy with a ton of passion for his art and skateboarding. I suggest you check out his site www.effigyskateboards.com. For those of you who are skaters his decks are wicked. Also at Allentown I got to meet up with Louis Small Jr for the first time in a long time. It's been almost a year since I last saw him at New York Comic Con. He made a fantastic suggestion of getting into Sketch cards, I'm looking into it and its seems like a lot of fun.

Now to the Meat and Potatoes (yum) The HUGE 4 day Chicago Comic Convention is coming and coming fast. August 11th through the 14th. I, of course, will be there with Hound Comics. I should have 4 prints ready to go for the con, one of which is right below. A Catwoman, A Poison Ivy piece, Sakura from Street Fighter and one is a secret. Also Hound Comics will be selling a book with all the hound artist sketches in it. I believe it is a Chicago exclusive. For more information on the the Sketchbook check out HoundComics.com. I'll hopefully update again before Chicago with a better preview of my prints. Till them HERES SAKURA!

Mmm, Dirty Burger in Philly

Sorry it's been so long. I have been really sick for the past month (so what else is new) On my behalf I did try and post something like a week ago but the blogspot server was down, oh well.

So it happened. Wizard World Philly Comic Com came and went pretty fast. I was with the rest of the Hound there having a good time, talking in up. The only thing I really didn't like about this con was... well the city of brotherly love was not so brotherly... Maybe it was just me but many of the people walking around the con didn't want to talk to ANYONE. But that the only negative thing I have to say. It was a great area, the vendors were super nice and I did get to draw my first EVER commission. I drew Godzilla. What was really weird was all the interviews I got to do. I love being on camera but in many cases I was not ready for all this exposure. It was like being a real celebrity.

The BEST part was the after party at The West Tavern. I'm talking Karaoke, beer and the Dirty burger. Don't know what a dirty burger is? Go to DiscoverDirty.com to find out. This party was so awesome I even got to get up on stage and botch a Lady GaGa song. (Who does that?) But no kidding, When Brimstone said no one throws a party like the Hound Comcs gang.

And there you have it for now. :)
