SpringCon 2011 Day 2: the Finale

Towards the end of Day 1 my assistant for the weekend, AJ, decided to commission a Fantastic Four piece from me. It was roughed out last night leading to early morning inking at the con. A nice way to start any day.

Day 1 saw some confusion on table assignments due to no shows and such, but Day 2 found our merry band with an entire table to ourselves so we spread out and enjoyed our new spacious accommodations. Especially since it allowed more room for the aforementioned inking.

This made AJ and I very happy.

But not as happy as our visit from Kent who stopped by early and acquired an inked drawing of Hellboy as well as swinging by for a couple other pieces later in the day. Awesome guy.

Speaking of awesome people, Adam and Molly joined us in the afternoon. Now you should know that many people enjoy walking the rounds of the convention floor and perusing all the wares while sighting the sights and pageantry. I am not really one of those people. Don't get me wrong. I love chatting and catching up with friends and fellow creator types, but camping out at the table and drawing is the comfort zone. So Adam was enlisted to take my camera and grab some snapshots of fun stuff.

A huge thanks to everyone who came by and made this a great convention experience. It was terrific reconnecting with old friends while making some new ones. Much love.

The Four Horsemen

Pre-convention this fellow named Mike commissioned a piece. He was sending a number of artists his favorite song lyrics. I got a number of Metallica songs ( F*@# Yeah! ) and was really digging on the idea of a nine to five guy trying to work up the courage to face down impending doom. Enjoy.

Springcon Day 1

Day 1 was good. The new t-shirt was officially approved by a Japanese person. This would come in handy later when a Filipino gent bought the first one. We pulled up this last pic and he took a photo of it on my camera with his cell phone. Spectacular.

This Weekend!

Come visit me this weekend as I camp out amongst other members of the Minnesota comics community. I'll have prints, posters, t-shirts, and original art for sale. I'll be doing sketches and taking commissions as well. Heck! If you email me ahead of time I'll have your sketch ready and waiting when you swing by. Not looking to purchase art from me? That's fine too just so long as you stop by and say hey. Otherwise it could be a very long weekend.
