baltimore in the rear view... next up, detroit!

had another GREAT show in baltimore last weekend (as always, BIG thanks to mark, brad and the rest of the crew!) this 2 day show seems to roll by SOOOO quickly, and this year with family (and in-laws) in tow, it seemed even quicker (well, not the 8+ hour drive, but...)

todd and i sold out of the 'haps trades we brought and put a BIG dent into the new shipment of tees (soon to be available at the haps webstore) ... didn't get to see much (or many folks) with my head down as i sketched all weekend... waiting for a few scans of the color pieces, but in the meantime, here's one of the pre-show pickups!

getting back on track with work and whatnot (wooohoo, the boy starts SECOND GRADE next week!), re-watching "sons of anarchy" and listening to the new fountains of wayne and they might be giants over and over...

i'll post later this week with the suh-weet lawrence basso colored version of the pmc print (and getting in touch with generous donors as well)...

first off, the PMC was a great day and a great ride and i'm thankful for all the support of family, friends and everyone else... managed to raise a good chunk of money directly for the dana farber jimmy fund to help find a cure for cancer, so THANK YOU! if you made a donation and i haven't gotten in touch yet, expect an email in the next week or so about a sketch request... (got a few more than i hoped, so it'll take a while to get through on top of work!)

the baltimore comic con is JUST around the corner this weekend... one of my absolute favorite shows and i can't wait to head down and spend with fans, family, and friends... one friend who's been waiting SO patiently for a drawing in trade is none other than david (mouse guard) petersen... after giving me not ONE, but TWO sweet harry potter themes sketches (and by sketches, i mean beautiful illustrations), i promised david a quidditch drawing... years ago. figured i HAD to get it done before seeing him and julia this weekend so... (granted, this is just the line art - i'm also gonna do a finished canson paper piece to go with it...)

back to work (got a few commissions to finish before heading down south... and plenty of "real" work on my plate)!

see you in baltimore,

pmc donation print all inked up!

well, been mighty busy since my last post 3 weeks ago... wrapped up the "jim henson's storyteller" story with ron marz, working on the haps motion comic, and got around to inking this piece... (which, if you read my last blog post, you'll know is going to be all colored up and given as a thank you for folks who donate $25 or more to my PMC ride.... love to post more, but i gotta get out for a training bike ride!
