It's That Time Again Friends...

WonderCon is returning to the Bay this weekend and we're lookin' to mix it up with you! I'll be posted up in Artist Alley with my pals Dave Dwonch and Super Ugly and they've put us in the back corner where the bad kids hang out (seemed appropriate enough). Check out this promo Dave put together:

We're gonna be hanging out and doing commissions so please come by and say hello. Also, I put together a sketchbook this year and they just showed up in time for the show. 42 pages for $5, it's a bargain...

Hope to see you there!

Cleaning House...

I've been doing a bit of sorting and cleaning here at the house. We've been packing up for a move, and I found myself sifting through a bunch of old drawings. It inspired me to put together a convention sketchbook of old drawings, rough work, and life sketches I've done in the last 4 or 5 years- I should be getting it back from the printer next week!.

In looking things over, I found a bunch of preliminary comps I did for covers of Resurrection that didn't make the sketch book because I only had low dpi scans left over but I thought it'd be cool to post some of 'em up against the finished cover. Here are a bunch of comps I did when coming up with a cover for Resurrection #5:

The one above didn't make the cover but I used the compostion for a double page spread instead- I also cropped it and used it for the top of this blog :)

This comp was the one that actually ended up as the cover:

... and as you've probably seen, the finished cover:

Warming Up on a Cold Day...

Here's a rough sketch I did of Michael from Wasteland while getting warmed up today. I've been toning pages for the last couple of weeks and I definitely needed a chance to loosen up a bit. Not the most successful drawing, but not too bad either.

I've also been doing a bit of sorting things out at my house recently and I've been coming across all kinds of cool stuff I haven't seen for a long time. We're starting to pack up in preparation to move *groan* and I've been stumbling onto all kinds of neat old drawings. Here's one I did of my brother Cary a few years ago that I really liked. I'm starting to put together a sketch book for conventions this year and I'm thinking I'm gonna add it to the mix.
