Back in the Saddle!

Okay… Baltimore is out-of-the-way for this year, so now I can finish updating this blog on my shenanigans...

To get the spring convention season into gear I wanted to go into AwesomeCon with a couple of new prints. I chose two of my favorite TV shows.  First up was another "Game of Thrones" piece.  This time the subject was Tyrion Lannister.

Next up was another "Walikng Dead" print, this time of fan-favorite Michonne...
(okay, I've got a small confession to make. I do have to admit that one of the reasons for this was that one of the special guests at the convention was Danai Gurira, The actress who plays her on the show...

It's actually turned out to be a level of coolness I hadn't banked on.  More than a few individuals brought fridge for me put them over to her to have them autographed! One of them actually gave me back a copy:
No I thought this was the height of awesome for her to do, so I resolved to thank her the first chance I got.  After the con was over, I went over to her table and gifted her with my artist's proof.  I also just happened to have the original pencil sketch which I showed to her...

... And she signed it for me!!!
EBay can have the print. But this here goes on my wall!

It's been WAY too long!!!

Hey, true believers!

 Yeah, I know, I know, I need to have my ass kicked (YET AGAIN) for waiting this long to post.

I'm currently lumbering through the 2014 convention season, with 2 VA single-day cons, Awesome Con, C2E2, HeroesCon, and SDCC under my belt, and Baltimore ComicCon, NYCC, and the 2-day VA ComicCon to go.

But enough about me.  You guys wanna see some prints? 

First out of the starting gate is a print I actually did in the middle of this con season, between Awesome and C2E2.  In advance of the film release of "Guardians of the Galaxy (which turned out to achieve levels of awesome that none of us could've predicted, by the way) I noticed everyone had a thing for certain small mammal, voiced by Bradley Cooper in the movie.  Here's Rocket Raccoon for ya...!
