comic-con flicks

So it's two months after the fact, but hey, better late than freaking never. I've been wrapped up with quite a few projects since then, so this site has been a bit neglected. Anyhoo, it was another great year and busier than ever. The consensus from most of the artists I knew was that we all didn't realize how much more people would flood through the doors than previous years.

Setting up for preview night. In 4 years of showing at the con, this was the first time we made in this early.


Outside the convention center it was a mass exodus to get the hell out of there.


Jenn spots her first celebrity of the con, David Arquette.


The almighty Joss Whedon graces us with his presence and picks up a print! The fanboy in me passes out for the rest of the con.


My awesome neighbor for the past 3 years, Tim Wollweber.
Our good friend Garret Izumi representing Shortwave Productions and the pimp way of life.

This year's sketch theme was "dreaming."

I was commissioned by Snakebite (awesome freakin' name!) to draw on these shoes. I gotta do more shoes.

I'm usually apprehensive of sketching people's likeness, especially when they're standing right in front of you. But I think these came out pretty cool.

The rest of the flicks from the con can be found here. And while you're online, check out some awesome art from a few artists I was lucky to meet this year, as well as the usual cast of folks who I've had the pleaure of exhibiting with these past few years.
