As the featured image from this post suggests I will be at the Dallas Comic Con Sci-Fi Expo the weekend of February 8th and 9th at the Irving Convention Center. As has become tradition for the past few years (for better or worse) I will be upstairs in the 3rd Floor Artist Alley at table #303. All the way in the back. Come track me down and mention this post and I’ll have a freebie for you.
The Dallas Comic Con Sci-Fi Expo runs Saturday, February 8th from 11am to 7pm and Sunday Februay 9th from 11am to 5pm. For more info visit the Dallas Comic Con website.
In the ongoing quest to document my process and gain art fans through YouTube I’ve got another timelapse/speed drawing video in the can, this one of everyone’s favorite illegal alien, Superman. The Man of Steel. Clark Kent. Kal-El. The original Man of Tomorrow.
This is about 4 hours of work and was completed 100% on the pixel-box. The initial sketch, which I didn’t record, took about an hour or so. You can see the finished piece here.
January brings with it 2014’s first commission, a throwback-style Superman piece. You can check it out on my DeviantArt profile here, if you’re into that sort of thing.

This was completed for the same client who commissioned the Uuru Mystic piece and was given as a birthday present to one of their good friends. The next theme on the commission list is a toss-up between Dr. Who or Star Trek.
That’s right, we’re going old school and taking it wayback by putting together something I haven’t had in years, a properly curated mailing list. So, sign up below if you’re interested. I’m not 100% sure what I’ll be sending your way but you can bet it’ll be art and design related. And I won’t spam your inbox, promise.
This is about 15 hours of work, including the mounting process, time-lapsed down to just over 5 minutes with music by the massively amazing Adam Warrock. If you dig the track go pick it up along with the rest of his new album Middle of Nowhere.
Another year, another Year In Review. 2013 was marked by a much-welcomed increase in the frequency of illustration gigs and, I think, an increase in the quality and complexity of the pieces I’m producing as well. I’ve consciously tried to put more thought into the compositions/color theory and more time into the final, rendered pieces as well, and I think it’s paying off.
Once again I had enough illustration clients to push all of the design work to the back-burner and really focus on art this year. Here’s to more of the same in 2014!
