Here’s my one holdover piece from Dallas Comic Con. But it’s not my fault! The nice young girl who commissioned this wanted to know if I could mail it so she could leave the con early. Not sure what was so important, but thanks for trusting me with your cash Rachel! This will be in the mail to you shortly! Below are a few process shot of pencils, inks and final marker.
Well this year’s Dallas Comic Con was amazing. So amazing in fact that I am just now, late into Wednesday night, able to post about it. Bust seriously I had a ton of work to catch up on and this is the most i can muster as I fight to stay awake!
Anyway, DCC was awesome as always. The new venue at the Irving Convention Center is slick, and I mean slick. It’s a work of modern art really, with plenty of room to accommodate Dallas’ growing nerd population. Art was made, prints and books were sold, and a great time was had by all. Below is a roundup of photo and link goodness from DCC2011.

A former co-worker and good friend requested a Green Lantern commission for her friend’s birthday featuring him as the newest protector of Sector 2814.

I’ll be in Irving this weekend, May 21-22, at the new Convention Center for Dallas Comic Con. I’ll be exhibiting in Artist Alley with the rest of the Space-Gun Studios members.
I’ll have $10 prints, original art for sale and will be offering sketches for $20 and open commission slots. If you’d like to pre-order a commission you can email me at soulcoredotnet (at) gmail dot com. I’ll be taking credit cards for the first time as well.
So come on out, say hello, and meet Leonard Nimoy, Stan Lee and a whole bunch of other awesome artists, writers and lovers of funnybooks.
I’ve decided to start posting more of my design and interactive work, both to show what I’m working on between illustration and comic gigs, and to help keep the blog fresh as I tend to have long stretches where I can’t post because of deadlines or a lack of new art.
For the past few months I’ve been working as Creative Director for an upstart mobile dev shop, IdeaLoop, founded by my good friend Chris McCroskey and coder extraordinaire Robert Hanacek, both of whom I met while working at Rockfish Interactive in 2010. We’re slowly developing a respectable portfolio of interactive work including websites, mobile sites and iPhone/iPad apps.
The first of which I had a hand in is the above Daltile and American Olean “Inspiration Galleries”. They’re a slick interactive photo gallery featuring their tiling products in home decor and outdoor settings.
So, if you’re into interior design or just want a cool reference for awesome interiors find in in the Apple Store.
