Long Beach Comic Expo Commissions

The above are commissioned drawings I made for collectors, during the Long Beach Comic Expo. Thanks to everyone who came out to support & show love. And many thanks to Mike, Martha, Ian and the rest of the organizers & volunteers who helped make it such a memorable, successful whirlwind of a convention. I had an absolute blast!

Sketch, Sketch, Sketch!

These are a couple acrylic sketches I rocked, recently. They're pretty layered for warm-up drawings. But I find that going through something a bit more involved than quick sketching helps crack open different parts of my imagination, and prepare me even more for the creative tasks of the day.

DOOM BOX & Danger Mouse Prints at The Long Beach Comic Expo!

I'm proud to announce that I'll be a guest at the Long Beach Comic Expo, this Saturday in Long Beach, CA. Yes, the land that brought you Snoop Dogg, gin & juice is also a hot spot for comic books, art & nerd culture!

I'll be set up at Artists Alley table #6003, next to the rascally Jim Mahfood, aka Food One! Along with creating commissioned sketches right on the spot, I'm going to have several limited edition items on hand. That includes the remaining stock of my latest sketchbook/zine, DOOM BOX, which collects drawings, sketches & a 3-page comic short from the past two years.

I'll also have a small batch of 18x24" giclee prints of my Danger Mouse piece, "You Can't Hide Forever." These prints are the real deal, made with archival ink on 310gsm textured paper. And each giclee comes with a signed certificate of authenticity, complete with a sketch of Danger Mouse!

This is a one-day convention, being held at the Long Beach Convention Center. Check out the highlighted floor map below, to see where Jim & I will be set up. For tickets and other details, visit www.longbeachcomiccon.com.
