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!

Off I go!

I am in Pearson Airport and waiting to board my flight to Calgary. I will be setting up tomorrow and ready to meet and greet everyone. My table is P09 and I can’t wait to meet anyone who is coming!

Just come by to say HI, but know that everyone who purchases something will get a free trading card or postcard.

CCEE, here I come – next week

CCEE has posted their program book, which has a little picture of my artbook contribution in it, so I figure it’s officially safe to show it off. Please, if you’re going to CCEE, pick up one of the artbooks! Proceeds this year go to Make a Wish. Bring it to my table and I’ll sign it, and people who come by with an artbook will get a free postcard or trading card. I am at P09 in the writer/artist guest area, not in the Artist Alley, so come and find me!

The artbook piece is adobe photoshop and to accompany the original, I am very likely going to get a poster printed for the auction.

Hope to see you all in Calgary!

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

First, have a Pangolin in a Dinner Jacket beanie to start your day! What a dapper fellow.

I will be there, will you?

I’ll have more details as I get them, like a table number and all, but I don’t think I’m in artist alley this time around. For those of you wondering, yes I will be doing the ‘How to Draw Star Wars’ stuff again and I’m looking forward to catching up with all you Calgary folks again. I’m sad to have missed Emerald City Comicon.

I will be offering commissions to be picked up at the con, such as bust sketches, sketch cards, cuties and beanies, look for an announcement in April or May for that. I need to get through the rest of the semester first.

Post con wrap up

Had a decent show! While I didn’t sell as much as I would have liked to, I saw a ton of old friends and made a bunch more new ones. That is worth its weight in gold.

One new friend I made was the amazing Garrett Hanna who, while being an amazing artist, is also a fantastically nice guy. We shared a table, I traded him a drawing of Wartortle for a print of Batman. And I didn’t notice as I was clearing out, but I left my markers behind at the show. Garrett emailed me and let me know he had them, and he is going to mail them to me.

Holy crap. What a standup guy. That was a few hundred dollars worth of markers I almost lost.

So yes, go look at his art because he’s a great artist and a nice dude who totally saved my bacon.

Will have more post con wrapup after I get everything done. I also need to sleep 🙁

I ams uper sad about my markers because it means there really won’t be many colour cards for my Clone Wars set that will be in packs. Sorry, guys! But that happens D:
