Marvel Team-Up 122 Cover Re-Creation

Back from the Summit City Comic Con. Had a blast, it was an amazing show! I'm really swamped trying to catch up on work, but I hope to make a short report later. I didn't get many pics because I was so busy the whole time.

For now, here's a commission pre-order from the show, a cover re-creation, complete with lettering, of Marvel Team-Up 122, featuring Spider-Man and the Man-Thing!

Thor, Odin, and the Summit City

I'm headed off to Fort Wayne, Indiana for the first annual Summit City Comic Con. This show is organized by my buddy Zack Kruse and the good folks of DCBS. There's a fantastic lineup of comic creators, and I'm really looking forward to catching up with some friends I haven't seen in a while.
This drawing of Thor and his father Odin I did as my contribution to the silent auction they are having to benefit the The Hero Initiative.

Iron Fist and Haunted Tank

Two more for the Summit City Comic Con, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I'm leaving tomorrow. See you there!

Free Comic Book Day 2010

Saturday May 1st was Free Comic Book Day! FCBD is an annual event where comic shops across the country give away a selection of Free comic books. I was invited by Phantom of the Attic, a great shop here in Pittsburgh, to set up shop at a table and sell my wares, and Amber was invited in her Wonder Woman persona to help attract and entertain the fine folks who attended. The shop was packed for most of the day and I was busy with sketches. I sold a few prints, a bunch of the Guns preview books, some of the Monsters!*Mostly sketchbook, and even a t-shirt, (which I wasn't even displaying, I just brought them along in case).

It was great fun talking with a lot of local folks in this active comic scene they've got going in Pittsburgh. The good folks at Phantom were efficient and gracious, as always. They even had sandwiches for us guests, and later they brought out a bunch of cupcakes for whoever wanted one! I also walked away with a huge stash of free comics! Along with a three week backlog of my regular books, I've got a lot of reading to catch up on.

Here are the sketches I did at the show. See more pics on my facebook and flickr:
