Comic Con 2008

I am very excited to announce that My buddy Pascal Campion and I will be sharing a table exhibiting at Comic Con in San Diego this upcoming week (July 23rd through 27th)!

Comic Con is a huuuuuge convention of comic book stores, comic book artists, animators, video games, film, toys, basically everything visual media. Add to that roves of obsessed fans and you have one heck of a circus. Its a blast!

There is also an undercurrent of independent artists selling their artwork and small print collections of their art, and that is exactly what Pascal and I are doing!(....and pic!)

We will be selling original artwork as well as small print limited edition books of our sketches from throughout the year. Our books will debut at comic con, so pick them up there if you can. If you can't make it and still wish to get a book, I will be keeping some to sell online after con. I will post a another note on the this blog about the books in August. Drop me a line if you're interested and I can reserve one for you.

Things I am looking forward to at con this year:
-All of the great artists that whose work I have come to know and love.
-Andy Ristaino's The Babysitter!!!
-Robert Valley's Massive Swerve.
-Mike Mattesi's Force: Character Design from Life Drawing
-Any Battlestar Galactica stuff (I'm a nerd)
-Any Lost stuff (Super nerd)
-Any Dr. Horrible stuff (Guffaw! Mega Nerd!)
-My animation buddies from So Cal.

W00t! I'm gonna geek out for a week! But I will be back.
Stay cool!
