C2E2 was a great show. I had to miss the 2013 show due to scheduling conflicts so I was extremely excited to be a part of my hometown Comic Con. Also, for the first time in ages, I didn't have other work schedules conflicting with any of the days, so I was at the show the whole time.
It was a great mix where many of my old supporters came by to say hello, purchase some prints, and get some more commissions. It is very humbling to have the continued support of so many people. Repeat customers are my favorite, because it tells me that I am doing something right and that people are really excited about what I am offering. That said, its also great to meet more and more new supporters. I was able to do a lot of commissions for some new fans, who challenged me to draw some characters I had never drawn before.
I would like to thank each and every one of you who commissioned me for some artwork:
Pre Show Commissions!
Josh, with 2 Pre Show Commissions!!!
And Josh's friend Joe with a Scarlet Witch:
Fellow Artist Tony Kordos with a Phoenix Commission
And Jeff for his commission of Dejah Thoris.
Thanks for the pre orders everyone
Aran: my first commission of the day Friday: A Wolverine Sketch Cover
Neal: my 2nd commission on Friday was of the lovely Wonder Woman!
Brad: Brad was a friend of some old supporters who I've done commissions for in the past. Thanks for the referral. I did A Rogue sketchbook commission
Andrew: I did a Winter Soldier version of Captain America
Jeremiah: Another faithful repeat supporter. I did a Batman head sketch for his Daughter Aayna.
Grant: A Poison Ivy Sketchbook commission
Joe: Joe is another supporter from the past who asked me to do TWO!!! Walking Dead Sketch Covers. 1 with Negan and the other with Rick. He asked to show them squaring off!
Ken: Ken had a sketchbook that contained nothing but Green Lanterns in it. I was commissioned to do a female Green Lantern!
Glenn: an EDI from Mass Effect Commission. I love doing metalic effects with the markers
Mark - Had the awesome and SURPRISING honor of doing a Star Wars Cad Bane commission for Mark. He only wanted the line work. I didn't know until I was done that he was having the very talented Laura Martin Color it!!! She knocked it out.
Dave: A classic Angel (wings) with the modern look (hair/outfit). I was rather pleased with this one, especially the wings.
Rob: Rob had a cool sketchbook that had heroes on the top of the page, and underneath them, their evil rivals. I was tasked with Captain American and Red Skull. That was cool!
Some of the pictures I took with my phone didnt turn out well at all, which is why they are not posted here. That said, thank you EVERYONE for the support with the commissions! As well as those of you who purchased the prints. And even if you didn't buy anything, and you were able to swing by and introduce yourself and say Hi, thank you for taking the time to do that! Every little bit helps.
Finally, a lot of you asked about World of Grey! And I am glad to announce, that tonight April 29th, I am laying down the thumbnails for the first issue. We are moving forward everyone! This will be released via a free web comic, and I might even do it similar to the way Travis Charest does his SpaceGirl web comic (travischarestart.com/#/spacegi… Releasing it panel by panel so there isn't as much wait time, and it's easy to catch up.
I am trying to gather interest in the book. More to come on this in the near future
Once again, thank you all for the support!
