I was inspired to draw Bane after seeing The Dark Knight Rises trailer. So I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and experiment with Copic Markers for this illustration. In the gallery you will find progress shots leading up to the final illustration.
WOW!!! I have been looking forward to this convention since April. It was such an honor and privilege to be a guest for this convention. Not only was I a guest, but I also designed one of the promotional posters used to promote Comikaze Expo.
The convention had the best energy and excitement that I’ve seen this whole year. When I arrived on Saturday to set up my table there was a huge line of people waiting to get in. And once the crowd was let in the energy lasted until the convention closed. It was fantastic being in the artists alley tables 38-40 with Lance & Amy Sawyer, Dan & Jennifer Mendoza, Jennifer Kirkpatrick Romo, Tony English, Semion Sellers IV and myself.
Sunday also brought the exact same feeling. As always one of my favorite parts of the convention was all the awesome costumes. I also scored an early birthday present for myself with Copic Sketching Set of Gray Markers! It was also great seeing Mike Mayhew, Zen, Emo Gonzales, George Chase, Destiny Chase, Jeff Martinez, George Avecedo, Brenna Rhea, and Copic Markers!
Regina and the Comikaze staff did an excellent job marketing and taking great care of the exhibitors! Other conventions push the Artists and Indie Creators to the front, back and sides of the Exhibitor Floor, not Comikaze. Love the fact that the Indie Creators and Artists were the main focus on the Exhibitors Floor! Other conventions should take note of this and do the same. Without the artists you wouldn’t have comics, posters, merchandise or movies.
Thanks to all the friends, family and convention attendees who stopped by my table!!!
And A Huge Thanks to Regina for everything!!!
Comikaze Expo set out to Invade Los Angeles and they definitely did that!!!
The Long Beach Comic Con was a blast. This year brought George Chase, Lance Sawyer, Amy Sawyer, Ryan Kincaid, Dan Mendoza, Kevin Woody, Tony English, Semion Sellers IV and myself in a row of tables 1108-1113. Always great to be surrounded by such awesome creative people.
Both Saturday and Sunday had a steady flow of attendees all day. The crowd all day was full of excitement. On Saturday there was an art auction to benefit The Heroes Initiative and Long Beach Cinematheque. For these great charities there was some great artwork donate by Peter Nguyen, Kevin Eastman, Dave Dorman, Lance Sawyer, Ryan Kinkaid, Kevin Woody, Dan Mendoza and myself to name a few. I was also able to donate original Darth Talon artwork to the 501st Legion to help Baby Leah.
On Sunday, I saw Seth Green roaming the convention floor. Sunday also brought a surprise interview with @FandomPlanet covering my comic Tales of Blood & Fire. A Hugh Thanks to George Chase & Amy Sawyer for helping us out!!! You Both ROCK!!! Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table!
Martha & Phil, Thanks for putting on a great convention!
