Quick Update and a Purchase

Taking a quick moment to say Hello and to post this great Alex Nino page I bought from a seller in the Phillippines. It's a great example of his brushwork from 1969. I'm working on having the page translated, but until then, it's a joy to examine and enjoy.

NYC Comicon Update

We walked, we talked, we were jostled, we met with reps, we met with publishers, we bought artwork, we bought books, we bought toys. A good time was had by all, but man that was a long, tiring, chaotic show.

Update: I ran into my Massachusetts Amigo Craig (Perhapanauts) Rousseau. We talked briefly (don't forget this was the chaotic show) but I was able to flip through his Canson sketches and I picked up this sweet Etrigan piece. Please wipe the drool from your chins.

NYC Comicon and the Secret Project

This weekend is the big NY Comicon and for some crazy reason I'm going. I was contacted by my old inker friend Bill Anderson and he asked me if I wanted to read over some concepts that he's putting together with writer Dennis Webster. I know Bill is a stand-up guy so I said yes. Out of the dozen or so concepts I showed interest in 4-5. The I sent that off and then I added a last minute afterthought. Well it was that afterthought that Dennis and Bill thought I would be perfect for. I'm meeting Bill and we're going to talk to some publishers and go over the meeting that he and Dennis took on Friday. Maybe I'll see something in print this year!!!
Oh and my neighbor Mike Dobbs is going with me to check out the show, buy his wife something luscious and take in the massive nerdness of Comicon.

V1 Design

I was approached by Paul Kozub to design some ad concepts for his new vodka V1. He's a new, young entrepeneur cooking up the original wheat based vodka and then having it distilled in Poland. He had some great ideas and I took some of them and ran with it. I did 8 ads in total, but I think these 5 are the strongest ranging from edgy to safe.
