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!

Commissions are Open

After a long time of self doubting myself, putting it off, and getting myself free from other art commitments, I want to formally announce that I’m taking digital and traditional character commissions!

All prices are in U.S. Dollars. Payment upfront only via PayPal or Cash App.

I have details on my new commission page on my website, but here is the quick and dirty of my digital art prices:

County Pop Culture Con 2019

I went to the County Pop Culture Con in Greyslake, IL last weekend. It was the slowest con I’ve ever been to so far. I broke even on my table, but in general it wasn’t that great in terms of sales and the distance to travel to the venue.

3-5-2018 Characters

I was having a bit of a hectic week, catching up with important things like renewing my drivers license, fixing my car, and completing a commission that I haven’t made much comic progress. My posting has been more sporadic because I’m trying to figure out how to get the quality of my artwork to better snuff. Daily sketches are fine but not when they never finish and it’s  thing that bothers me often. I’m trying my best to post better work and not just phoning in a sub-par daily sketch that means nothing to me.

This was a commissioned character for a game called Knockout Mice. This is nice and all but I’m not feeling the line art is up to snuff, but I managed to get it done in a timely matter and my client was happy with it.
