Back to the blog!
First off- Wizard World Portland and ECCC were two really great shows, thanks to everyone who came out and got books signed, bought prints, or commissioned me. Had many adventures in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with fellow artists Sara Richard, Billy Fowler, Agnes Garbowska, and Chris Uminga, who I may or may not have almost drowned in the Pacific Ocean with...?
Secondly, just came home from Fabletown and Beyond, and this was such a great, intimate show especially for Fables fans, but also as well for Vertigo/Indie/Literature fans. Lots of new announcements were made, Gene Ha, Mark Buckingham, and Bill Willingham sang (a lot), and lots of good food was eaten and drinks drunken at the Kill Shakespeare Bar.
If you're familiar with Fables' 1001 Nights of Snowfall Graphic Novel, Bill announced a Fairest OGN to be done in the same style, entitled Fairest of them All, that will have some interior art done by yours truly and lots of other familiar Fables artists. Really excited for this project, it's going to be nice to be back working for the Fables universe.
I'm also currently working on variant covers for Archie, New Crusaders, and Damsels to be posted soon, as well as a piece for a Little Nemo tribute book put together by the same team behind Once Upon a Time Machine.
In the meantime, here's some personal art and commissions I've been working on in between shows:
Sketching Oz for fun, and playing around with the Womanthology painting...
Some commissions from Wizard World Portland and ECCC, photos edited with Instagram. Joan of Arc, Wonder Woman, Death, and Black Cat (with Yeti). All of these done with Copic marker.
And some pieces from Fablescon, Elsa from Disney's upcoming Frozen, Aang and Appa, Princess Mononoke, Bufkin and Frankie, and Rose Red. All of these done with red lead, an idea pushed by Chris Uminga.
And a few personal pictures from WW Portland and ECCC in Seattle:
