I am Cute Groot

In anticipation for a new convention, a celebration of having office space in my new house and a desire to paint I’ve pulled out the watercolours.

This is the first of three new paintings for the upcoming Saskatoon and Edmonton Expos 🙂 Yes, there shall be prints!

Calgary Expo news and STICKERS!

Calgary Expo is just around the corner and I will be there. I was originally in the backup Artist Alley, but I’ve been moved to the main exhibitor hall – location TBA. I’ve done a piece for the artbook that involves bunnies. I’ll have new-to-you prints of old-to-me art, a blowout on really old prints, and STICKERS! All stickers at the show will be $1 each or two for $1.50

Sticker themes include My Little Pony, Ninja Turtles and NOPE!IMALS. And a certain Fox with a speech bubble you can fill in. The Sloth and Laser Kitten stickers from last year will also be at the show, and the Laser Kitten will be available as a print!

I’m done the Mane 6. Pardon the differences in inking here, I’ve gotten my hand on a cintiq and I inked these in two different programs (And Fluttershy was inked by hand).

Not pictured is Darth Muffins/Derpy/Bubblecup (Whatever you want to call her).

I’ll have more art here as I finish it, and the Artbook piece will be posted shortly before the con!

Sculptures and fun!

Sorry to all my visitors for the radio silence of late.

As many of you know, I work full time in health care and I’ve moved across Canada, so I’ve been settling in over here.

I have been doing art, but mostly random doodles and stuff I can’t show you yet! I do have this little sculpted dragon for you today, and a few other pieces from the tail end of 2013.

BEFORE THE ART…

I will be doing a few Western Canada conventions this year. This is my tentative schedule pending vacation days and such:

April 24-27 – Calgary Entertainment Expo!

Sept 20-12 – Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo in Saskatoon. This is a new con, come out and support it!

Sept 26, 27, 28 – Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo

Tree Dragon wishes you a happy new year!

A wee, watercolour sandperson. I plan on having small originals like this at my shows in 2014

More Art! Ninjas! Dewbacks! Witches!

I got back from Calgary and then promptly disappeared. The Day Job has been very busy of late, but I managed to sneak off a few pieces of art. Some commissions and inks for Chicago WizardWorld prints follow!

First: COWABUNGAAAA!!111. I drew a rough of this at about midnight one night, and it had to be finished. The coloured version will be wacky. Ninja Turtles ahoy!

cowabunga! Turtle Power!

Lord of the Rings personal sketch card commission

An adorable dewback with Stormtrooper (Will also be a print, like the turtles)

Finally, a return card of a foxy witch from the Spellcasters set. This card is going all the way to Italy. Viva Italia!

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 🙂

Dragon Ferrets! Squee! Dookdookdook!

This is kind of the big thing I’ve been working on for a while – something traditional, cute and with wings. behold, Dragon Ferrets!

I will have letter sized prints available for Calgary Comic Expo attendees to purchase, and the original is also for sale at the show. Also – I plan on doing 4×6 mini prints of each ferret.

While I have uploaded it elsewhere on the internets, I will have my Calgary Expo Artbook piece up here soon!

Also for sale at Calgary Expo (prices TBD): Mystical Critters Colouring Book, How Harold Got His Wings, my 2011 Sketchbook (no new book this year for Calgary, the 2011 one will be discounted!). Plus prints! Sketches! You-As-A-Pony and/or Your Fave Pokemon cheap doodles! Vinyl stickers! Magnets! BUTTONS! and original art. I’ll be signing artbooks from the past or present, as well.

Also, this year my display is guaranteed to not fall down. I have the power of awesomeness (And pre-building the display) at my disposal this time.

As we get closer to the con, more art will be posted. Like dragons. And Hydras. And Laser kittens. And sloths!
