I just realized that I hadn’t posted any pictures from the Cambridge Comic Arts Festival.
Which – for a beautiful, sunny, summer sailing day – was a lot of fun!
Anybody who goes to any shows around here will recognize Alfonso (on the right),
probably the only guy who could talk me into sittin’ inside
on a beautiful, sunny, summer sailing day.
Michael sent in some pics of his Cerebus stuff:
(Wow… Mick and Keef sketches (on the left)… cool… rare… awesome.)
Okay, so he’s got stuff other than Cerebus… nobody’s perfect:
Michael and his commissioned piece:
And let’s not forget about Hal-Con, coming up real soon!
September 22 – 24
… and we have plane tickets for this one!
We will definitely be at this show!!
Looking forward to it!!!
(You can tell by all the exclamation marks.)
Here’s the latest off the list…
Lone Wolf and Cub sketch cover:
Wizard World Nashville is coming up fast:
(Still no plane tickets, though.)
Followed very closely by:
September 22 – 24, Halifax, NS.
How’s a guy supposed to get any boating done around here?
What will undoubtedly be the last swim of the year.
(Water temp: 16.5C / 61.7F)
… you know you got a lot of commissions lying around when you miss posting a bunch of ’em to your blog…
Here’s the rest of the ‘little ones’:
And here’s the latest ‘big’ one:
Okay… what’s next?
The ones for Nashville.
Although I haven’t got the plane tickets yet and am starting to wonder if I’m going at all.
Okay… now back to the larger commissions,
since that takes care of most of the smaller ones
except for a couple I have to have done for Nashville.
Comin’ up real soon!
Here are my latest completed commissions in GIF form,
showing the various stages in the process:
…this gets me caught up to commissions people gave me in March and April…
…okay… movin’ on!
Here are a couple before-and-afters of some old sketches that Dave had done and my additions:
And here is a Tony Harris Starman to which I added a background:
Okay… what’s next?
Let’s see… there’s a Bob Layton Ironman, a Tim Bradstreet Punisher…
and ever more Cerebuses.
Better get at it!
I finally finished this yesterday, exactly one year after Jon first contacted me…
…just needed to wait ’til the timing was right, I guess.
Thanks for your patience, Jon!
Okay! On to the next commission!
Of my list of 20 commissions, I’m currently working on 5 different ones at the same time.
Here are two of the ones I have completed:
The five other commissions are penciled and on one of those the inking has begun.
It’s the Canada Day long weekend!
We’re packin’ for Charlotte, NC.
We’re at table AA-1517:
If you’ve prearranged a commission and wanted to wait to see it at the show…
DO NOT SCROLL DOWN!!!
Here is some of the stuff I’ll be taking with me:
A quick Swamp Thing sketch to benefit the Inkwell Awards, a non-profit charity.
Here’s a sketch cover I received from Neil for me to doodle on…
…and here’s what happened:
Here’s Shannon’s Sophie…
…and Chad’s ‘A Girl Reading’…
…and ‘Books and Imagination’…
…whew… that’s a lot of drawing and haven’t even gotten to the show yet.
Should be a good one!
Hope to see you there!
Wow… here it is June already!
I’ve been trying to get caught up on my commissions but ‘life’ keeps getting in the way.
They say time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once
but it doesn’t seem to be working lately.
Anyway… here’s a couple of larger drawings that I’ve penciled and are ready for inking:
but first, I have to finish a few smaller commissions for the Heroes show coming up in a couple of weeks:
…plus, don’t I have a boat around here somewhere that I should probably get in the water?
