So, after much frustration at the hands of a crafty domain squatter the blog is finally back up and runningl. WordPress is good to go and the database has been recovered. Big thanks to my good friend Amelia for all the technical help. Also, my apologies for the repeat posts. We’re back to normal now and you should see nothing but new material from here on out.
Despite the downtime I’ve been busy on several fronts and have a few noteworthy updates. First up is…
Paul Milligan did the logo and I put together the website and we started spreading the word through social media, and it’s actually taken off quite well. At the moment we have upwards of 20 DFW area stores participating (including Zeus, Titan, Madness and Lone Star), and will have a chance to get our own books on “new comic” shelves come December 30th.
So I had promised a day 2 DCC wrap-up, but was unfortunately struck down Sunday night by the dreaded con-cough. Only gastrointestinal. Or maybe it was the Golden Chick. Ughn.
Instead of a blog post wrap-up I?ve got a sort of homage to the con in progress at the moment and will post that in the next few days.In the meantime it?s back to the day job (making comics) and blog posting (now that I?ve caught up with all the work I missed being sick Monday) so without further ado I give you a relatively new piece that hasn?t been posted yet, Black Bolt from the Inhumans.
More to come, for now it?s back to this weeks batch of pages.
Day 1 of DCC is a wrap and it was a blast! After going to see District-9 (an amazing movie) with my girl I put in a late night prepping the Atomic Robo print.
I only got about 4 hours sleep but it didn?t matter, I?m always pumped for cons. There?s no Wizard World or Cape in Dallas this year so we?re pretty starved for conventions here in the South and DCC did not disappoint. The crowds were thick and I started of the day with a nice Daredevil sketch.
Next up I started a Bat-Girl piece for my boy Evan. He?s even trading me a pimp Savage Dragon piece for it.
Later on my boy Jasper helped critiqed the pencils.
All in all day one was a mild success but awesome on the fun side! Seeing local creators (like David Hopkins, Paul Milligan, Joe Eisma and Brent Peeples just to name a few) always inspires me in the best way. There?s a wealth of talent here in Dallas just waiting to be discovered. And now on to day 2!
Dallas Comic Con is this weekend, August 15th-16th. Make plans to come out, get your geek on and support Dallas? comic scene! I?ll be there in artist alley with my fellow Space-Gun studios mates selling books, prints, and sketches and commissions.
