Here are some of the highlights from my 2018 SDCC experience. I did a couple portfolios this year. I saw the awesome Joe Jusko, he’s the reason I decided to pick up a brush and start painting. His new art book “Joe Jusko’s Marvel Masterpieces” was on sale and I was able have it signed. I visited my art friends booths, had a look at the many exhibitors, took pictures of cosplayers and hangout with family and friends while I was there. I took way to many pictures to share them all so here are some of my favorites.

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.
