C2E2 Commissions!

I had a fantabulous time in Chicago during C2E2 weekend. Many thanks to my friends at Nerd City, for giving me a home at their booth and providing such fun company all weekend long.

And despite grappling with a post-convention nerd flu, upon my return, here are some shots of the drawings & paintings I created for a handful of friendly collectors!

Oh, and this last little guy was actually a doodle that was on my airplane seat, when I flew out of LAX. I don't know who did it or what character it exactly is. But game recognize game, whoever did this has my respect. It's not every day that you get cool, cat-in-a-hula-skirt-playing-ukelele seat graffiti!

C2E2 2012 This Weekend!

If you're planning on hitting the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo 2012 (C2E2), this weekend, you can plan on seeing me there! I'll be a special guest of the extraordinary gentlemen from Nerd City (booth #842), all weekend.

I'm going to be rocking live painting & commissioned sketches in the booth, so you'll be able to see me create this crazy magic of mine, live and in person.

I'll also have a selection of convention exclusive prints, featuring seventeen fan-art favorites that I've created over the past two years. These pieces will include selections from Alphabet Attack! Series 1 & 2. You'll only be able to score these from me during C2E2, so don't miss this rare opportunity to own a print!

And there will be plenty happening, beyond the convention floor. Ignite your convention weekend fuse, Friday night, with The Nerd City Monster's Ball at Reggie's Rock Club. It's sure to be a whisky-soaked after party, complete with DJ's, live bands and down & dirty fun! The gang & I will also be bringing the thunder with a Saturday evening panel, "Booze, Idiocy & Dumb Luck: Nerd City's Guide to Becoming a Media Super Star." Come sit in and learn everything you've ever wanted to know about making it in showbiz, life, and geek love!

So between the convention and the plethora of after-hours events going on, this is going to be an action-packed weekend of comics & entertainment culture. Hope to see you there!

"Frankie & Bride"

"Frankie & Bride" / 14x17" / ink on bristol 

Here's a black & white piece I rocked for an event the Nerd City crew is throwing in Chicago, next month. The theme I was given was "monster ballroom dance," so my imagination instantly conjured up a high school prom.

The colorized version will be posted soon. In the meantime, back to unpacking my new headquarters!
