I finally got around to cleaning out my art satchel from Comic Con Revolution and came across this illustration I did of my character Nyx. I’ve been contemplating on getting these type of sketch boards to have at conventions. The surface of this sketch board takes ink and maker great.
A few art friends have these sketch boards and thought they are a great way to art on but the surface of theirs didn’t look like it took ink and makers well. Kinda like the sketch covers that are out that did not take ink or marker well and that’s why I started painting on sketch covers. From experimenting with this sketch board I’m definitely leaning toward getting some printed.
Comic Con Revolution was a blast! One highlight of the show was meeting Jason Aaron. It was great seeing all the amazing creative talents at the show especially my Con Family, thank you for inspiring and motivating me! You all Rock!!! Also a huge Thanks to everyone that stopped by my table!! Looking forward to next years show!

Palmdale Book Festival & Artown Fusion at Legacy Commons in Palmdale was blast yesterday. It’s great local event that has different styles of art for everyone to enjoy. One of the best parts is being able to talk to about the techniques used to create art. Thanks to everyone who stopped to chat and have a look at my artwork.
