Thank you, Calgary!

Thanks for the wonderful time. I did lots of sketches, met lots of people and it went by so fast.

As promised, I’ll have some of my Star Wars ‘How to Draw’ tutorials up soon, and a new Yoda one. Right now I’m finishing off the commissions that I took late on Sunday.

While I was going to randomly go to Ottawa Comicon next weekend to schmooze, I’ve got a responsibility here at home that is keeping me from road tripping. I’ll be at Wizardworld Chicago as a guest and perhaps a couple of other between now and then as a fan.

On the subject of commissions, the following pictures were commissioned and not picked up. If these belong to you, please get in touch with me! I think the commissioner was a volunteer, and these were for her nephews.

Calgary Expo, Here I come!

I promised a friend I would preface any entries with sloths by warning about impending sloths. There are sloths in here. If you love sloths, yay, if not, this is your warning. Sloths appear after the lazer kitten.

I will be at table X26. Come and find me! I will sign artbooks for free, kids get a free signed trading card (Everyone else pays a buck). Doodles starting at $5. Friday i will be running an Ewok mask class for kidlets, and Saturday is ‘You Can Draw Star Wars’ day. Check out the Calgary Expo site for times.

I have the laser kitten artbook piece as my poster. The first 15 people to bring me a copy to sign get a free laser-kitten button! Yay! Buttons!

Laser kitten! Pewpew!

Oh no, someone charged his lasers!

Did someone say BUTTONS? I have buttons for $2 each. And they’re awesome.

Sloths and Bacon and Ninja Turtle Buttons

And Stickers! Die cut vinyl. $1.50 each*

And, finally, colouring books. Lovingly drawn and collated by yours truly. $5 each. Full of awesome. I only have 25 of these suckers, but I plan on doing another print run if they sell out. So don’t fret! My luggage was getting heavy.

Colouring book of awesomeness.

Of course I will have my usual fare of prints as well. Stop by and say hello at least! I’d love to see you 🙂

You As A Pony and Spellcasters Sketch Cards

In two weeks I’ll be seeing Weird Al (!) and I’ll also be in Calgary doing art for you! And you. And even YOU.

I got some victims er.. volunteers to draw some new pony samples for. I’ll be doing either marker or watercolour for $10. Around 4x6ish. I really prefer watercolour, by the way.

In my next post – Stickers! Colouring Books! Awesomeness!

Thank you, Calgary!

I took a few photos, but not many. I was so busy! The pics will be posted ASAP and if any of you got a commission from me, whether a pony or otherwise, if you could scan it and send it to me that would be aweeesome!

😀 See you in two years. Can’t make it next year due to other obligations, sadly!

My Uncanny X-Ponies – Mutants are Magic

This is a crossover piece that I will have available as a print at Calgary Comic Expo. I had far more fun with this than I should have. I was originally going to do a Star Wars crossover, but I felt like doing Xmen instead.

*edit on the 17th of July* I have X-Ponies prints available! $5 each plus shipping. See this post for the details.

Mini Magnets and (Hopefully) stickers

I made those cute little mini magnets last year, and they were a hit. I will have them and all this other con stuff from Toronto at Calgary this year. I decided to make more little Illustrator illustrations for Calgary, so I’m not just bringing last year’s leftovers! Here they are (Plus the best sellers from last year, I might make a couple of more sets of turtles, but what I have is what I’ll have)

Assuming Canada Post either doesn’t go on strike, or the strike doesn’t last long, I will also have stickers available. My glossy sticker paper is in the mail. D’oh!

I’m also going to have a new print – My Uncanny Ponies. I just need to finish it up, it’ll be done shortly before the con, as well as some pre-drawn sketch cards.

Calgary Comic Expo sneak peek!

This is the super super rough version of my submission to the artbook this year. I’m working on getting it done for the deadline and it is coming along just fine!

Expect more art to come. Sorry for the drought, I cannot wait until classes are done so I can do more sketches. I’ve been digging through my old sketchbooks and, man, I used to sketch a lot, so I’m going to channel that again in May for a sketch a day thing to get the creative juices going.
