Best Show Ever!

It was a very good weekend for me,
 at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo.

The Reedus and Dinklage were my top two sellers.
Norman Reedus requested three of my prints, 
in exchange for an autograph. I was happy
to give it to him.

Peter Dinklage also got one of my prints
and was surprised when I got him to
sign the original.

I will be at Comic-Kazi on Macleod Tr.
or Free Comic Book Day: Saturday May Th,2013.
expected to make an appearance.

It is always a festive time at Comic-Kazi
as their 19th Anniversary is just around the corner.

Please come by for a visit and share some 
CCEE stories?

Thank you.

Calgary Comic& Entertainment Expo Art Book.

This is the completed image for the
CCEE  2013 Art Book:weird Tales.

I started off with a mermaid and a skeleton
skull octopus.Then moved on to a diving
suit idea morphing into this.

This was my 2012 piece for the Art Book
themed "Wishes and Dreams"

Have a great show!

Joe Madureira Wolverine, Ink Study.

Joe Madureira has been a favourite Artist, since his early
"X-Men" work for Marvel Comics and "Battle Chasers"
for Cliffhanger-Image.
 This is my fifth attempt at inking another artists work.
It has been a very informative process and something
I've come to enjoy.
Most of the inks here were done with the
Kuretake synthetic brush pen. It still has
its sharp point, so well suited for this job.

 The chain links took the most time to do
on this piece.
 I left filling in the blacks for last.
A very cool page to complete.

I will be at table J03 at Artist Alley on April 26th-28th
at the Calgary Comic & Entertaiment Expo!

Thanks for visiting.

Red Sonja

Slowing it down now. Going to printers
in the next couple of weeks. Lots to choose from.

This one was totally experimental,
a little play time.

Alien and Iron Man.

 I miss placed the camera on the weekend,
so I had to scan the artwork.
Lots of work in these two, but the challenge was interesting.
Lighting, focus, values all work together in a balance to make
a picture work. I am working from photographs and the
real puzzle is making it all work in ink lines.
Less than a month to the convention...still lots
to do, but I think I have enough images for the show.

Thanks for visiting.
