Post-Heroes post

First chance I've had to post after the fun that was Heroes Con this year, as I took the family to Atlanta to check out the World's Largest Aquarium in the form of the Georgia Aquarium. Definitely worth the trip! Whale sharks(the only ones in the States), Beluga whales, hammerheads, cow-nosed rays, loggerhead turtles... we saw 'em all and about a million more.

Anyway, thanks to all those who purhcased a copy of Rhomble at the show. Was great fun hanging out with everyone, and catching up with old friends. Had some great down-home cookin' with me old studio-mates Jeff Parker, Casey Jones, Scott Hampton and Chris Kemple. Good times. Caught up with old pal and Doom Patrol inker Mark McKenna as well. It was Mark that encouraged me all those years ago to start trying out inking other pencillers to see if it would take while he was working on a Kelley Jones fill-in for DP. Looking forward to next year's show already!

Putting together my first sketchbook for public consumption, to try and peddle at Heroes Con this weekend. If you're coming, come on by and pick up a copy. Free sketches for each copy purchased! How's that for salesmanship?

Some of the sketches in the book will be familiar to those who frequent this site, but chock full of goodies never seen elsewhere before. If I have some left after the show, I may well take orders online for those that can't make it to Charlotte. Time will tell!

Melancholic Dream

Watercolor study I worked up last week of Sandman. He kind of reminds me of a goth rocker who began to question what it was all about after the band broke up... but that's just me. Maybe I shouldn't psychoanalyze my own work.

Rise of the Silver Surfer

Getting prepped and ready for Heroes Con in just two weeks, and in so doing worked up this sketch for the program book. Went as far as inking it all up and adding some touches in photoshop, I figured I may as well color it up too.

Looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it to Charlotte this year for the show. Always a great time, thanks to people like Shelton Drum and the whole crew at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find, and Casey Jones, artist extrodinaire, former studio mate, and all-around great guy, who's coordinating the artists this year.
