My art is a tornado.

So I did a little piece of Snake Eyes for a necklace called a Torndao band- it is a laser engraved dogtag with my art. It is available at the Denver Comic Con, and only 100 are being made- I get the first one off the line, so 99 are available.
Here are the details.

We will feature 1 artist at a time throughout the conference and offer a limited addition tag (99) for each artist. At our table, customers will be able to choose from 20 necklace combinations, and 16 wrap colors to customize their Tornado Bandz. In addition to the featured artist tag, we also have 4 Denver Comic Con tags that will be available for the entire conference.

Here's the schedule:

Fri, June 15 - Chad Blakely

Sat, June 16 - Robert Elrod (Morning), Rebecca Hicks (Afternoon)

Sun, June 17 - Jason Sobol
and here is my Tag

An here is the Preview of the image...

So we have four turtles that appear to be ninjas, and mutations  of some sort. The seem rather young don't you think?

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

and a preview of the Turtle art arrives!

but not here.
I have  yet to scan it and this Blog only likes images from Droid powered devices... Apple has like 68 percent of the tablet and smart phone business world wide, but, alas, google is in Apple.

will scan tonight and post tomorrow.

but in the meantime, check out this image of the B to the F!

Many thanks for many things!

First, last Friday was May the 4th, or as my wife calls it, "you're allowed to be a Star Wars Geek" day. I went to a 501st event with the Denver ComicCon crew, and did free Star Wars sketches for kiddos for about three hours. Peopple actually waited almost two hours for a sketch! it was awesome to have that kind of support in my new town.

Second, my kcikstarter projects are moving along nicely! one is completely funded ( but could always use more if we are to go for a hardcover version of the sketchbook) and the other is at about 40 % if I recall correctly, One of my blog readers supported, and my thanks go out to them.

With any luck, suppport will continue to roll in, and my art projects can be funded. Some prayer never hurts, so I will had that in the mix too!

Expect me to update the page with the Ninja Turtle art by me and Bukshot this week. As soon as Lizz can color it, I will put her colors up as well.

Ok, so I am back in toa con-swing of things... kind of.

I will have all kinds of original art, sketch cards, prints, etc. I am doing a sketch card panal on Saturday, and a live drawcast on Sunday both at noon Mountain time.

I will provide more info when I have it, and of course, I will do my bset to take pics of my art from the show so that I can crop it properly and put it up on the blog.

ANNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDD, Buk and I will be putting out a limited edition Street Fighter print for the show. I will aiming to have Lizz color it- cuz she rocks, coz'!

I really suck... and I mean it.

ok...way too long.

almost 9 months away. I m neck deep in PhD stuff, I moved again ( still in Colorado,) and i have too many art jobs to handle. Ok, the last one sounds great- trust me it is NOT. Quality pays the price when there is not enough time to dedicate.

So I got a new scanner, and with technology being what it is now, I have no excuse not to add regular updates. So I Will try- can someone email me or something- once a month and yell at me to post?

Also, remind me to get a hold of Lizz- I need her masterful coloring on something...
Scans from art jobs coming up.
Also, a list of my current/up-coming projects:
Contemporary Pin-ups
Secret Marvel project
DC New 52 cards
Walking Dead comic book sketch cards
Mars Attacks Heritage sketch cards
Bombshells for BadAxe studios
and the 501st Legion Celebration party-giveaway cards
