My time at Indiana Comic Convention 2019

I went to Indiana Comic Con 2019 last weekend with Chris Scott as a table partner and it was great! The initial drive and check-in at my hotel room went easier than I expected and the venue was large but not crowded!

Early set-up there was alright. The tables we shared were smaller than the original set up we had at Revolution, so we prayed nothing would fall off the corners. Chris sadly forgot his banner and my banner was obscured by my wire grates and signs.

This is a reminder that I’ll be at Indiana Comic Convention on Friday, August 30th to Sunday, September 1st! I’ll be sharing a table with Chris Scott!

There, I’ll be debuting some new stickers courtesy of Sticker Robot! One is a 2×2 inch Round Sticker and the other is a 3×2 Die Cut Sticker of my popular Hipster Medusa!

How to build a Portfolio

A portfolio is a gallery of your work that you’ll show to people to demonstrate your artwork whether it’s in a book or online. It’s a reflection of the type of art you do and what art you want to be hired to do. Some could argue that a portfolio also represents what kind of person you are.

If you’re an artist and you want to get paid making art for people, you’ll need a portfolio to tell people that yes, you’re an artist and your services are for sale.

Visual art portfolios vary depending on the art job that you want but these are some universal tips to making a portfolio in general

Stickers and Statuses

I ordered a small sample of stickers from Sticker Mule. They’re pretty nice and I want to order a larger pack from them again.

My coloring stuff has slowed down due to commissions and things that I need to do at hand. It’s still in the back burner and I’m gotten too far into it to stop it, but I need to make priorities.

Other good news, is that I was interviewed by the Lockport Legend when I was at Comicopolis two weeks ago! They might be going out of style but it’s still cool to be published in a newspaper!

I think I might get back to my coloring stuff soon but I’ll let you know later!

My Time at Comicopolis 2019

I went to Comicopolis 2019 last weekend and I had a real good time! It’s been a while between cons sk I’m happyto get back in that groove and tell people about my stuff!

I was surprisingly busy chatting with the attendees and my table neighbors, Mandy Madrox and Jamie Patrick about making art and stuff!

I managed to get some pictures of some cool cosplay of characters rare and well-known! I dig smaller cons since you can see some talented locals eaiser than goimg to a crowded event like C2E2.

I also knocked out some commissions! I got a behind them due to getting busy selling stuff, but I managed. Despite only being two commissions, these are the most commissions I’ve done for anyone so far and I wanted to do my best with them. If you want a commission too, you’re free to message me!

If you missed me or missed out on buying comics from me, you can still go to my Etsy Store and buy physical or digital copies of Shirley’s Day, Incident at the Game Store or my 2019 Printed Sketchbook!

The next convention I’ll be attending is Indiana Comic Con with Chris Scott at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis on August 30the to September 1st!
