I will say this, I find doing convention sketches much easier when I am able to do what ever I would like. It's easier to pick something strange out of my mind than to come up with a pose for a character that has been drawn hundreds of times before. I am not saying I refuse to do Marvel character A or Wildstorm character B, but you will get something more personal and original if I'm left to my own machinations. I don't know if you can relate to how difficult it is to draw a character that one- you are totally unfamiliar with and/or don't care about and two- you know that if you do a lackluster job on, will decimate the client who loves said character. It's your money and I will do my best for whatever you would like.
Thank you for indulging my whiny side for a bit. Now for some really cool news.
We will be having a book release party/ art exhibit for Cursed Pirate Girl vol. one. Here's a link to their blog post. And I've been told there will be a couple of the pages from the next issue for people to take a gander at. I'm extremely excited about this, I received a copy of the hard cover from the Archaia offices in LA and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I hope you will be too. To make the show a bit more exclusive (besides the fact that you will be able to get the book before anyone else in the country) I just finished a bookplate that will be printed in a quantity of only 100 and these will be going into all the books we were able to get for the show. Here's a sneak peak of the bookplate (I will prepost a blog post showing it in it's entirety for Dec. 1st so you can still check it out when others do)
Oh and I forgot to post this-
