MAY CONVENTIONS– DENVER AND OMAHA!

I’m gearing up for two conventions this month–both are new to me, so I’m excited to meet new fans and experience a new show.  Of course, as you all know, I will be looking for great places to eat and fun places to explore!  Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Next weekend, I will be at Denver Comic Con.  It looks like it’s going to be a great show with lots of incredible guests.

The following weekend, I will be appearing at O Comic Con, with Bad Karma fellows, B.Clay Moore and Seth Peck.

I’ll have prints, comics and trades, original Batwoman and Constantine art, sketchbooks and more.

I will also be taking commissions.  Conventions are virtually the only way for me to do custom pieces.  So if you are interested in having me draw something for you, message me!

For my standard commissions, I’ll be doing 9×12 bust shots of the character of your choice, in ink and Copic Marker on Strathmore drawing board or in your sketchbook of similar size for $75.

I’ll also be taking a few full figure commissions as pre-orders of the character of your choice. I can do these in either 9×12 or 11×17.  I can only offer these as preorders, and this is the only way to get a full figure commission from me.

As always, openings for commissions are very limited.  Decide what you would like to add to your collection–then email jeremyhaunart@gmail.com with questions or to get on the list!

Some examples of bust commissions–

free-comic-book-day1

It’s time again for Free Comic Book Day again!

Tomorrow I will be set up at Joplin’s Premier Comic Book Store–Hurley’s Heroes in Downtown Joplin at 824 Main St.

I’ll be doing FREE SKETCHES again this year! That’s right, absolutely free.

Like these–

IMG_0018 IMG_0024 IMG_6647 IMG_6553_2 IMG_0035 IMG_0034

Things get a little crazy and the lines get long, so please do me a favor and understand that they can only be head sketches with one character and we’ll need to keep things to one sketch per person. Other than that I’ll try and draw anything you’d like.

In addition to doing sketches and signing books, I’ll have prints, sketchbooks, t-shirts and original art for sale.  I am donating for some goodies for door prizes, including a page of original comic art! Come by, check out the great deals at Hurley’s, get your FREE COMIC BOOK DAY comics,  and get a chance to win some cool swag!

For more information, check out the Hurley’s Heroes Facebook page HERE!

Cape Girardeau Next Weekend!

Well, con season is underway.  I am frantically trying to catch back up after traveling for over 3 weeks in March.  What a whirlwind.  Both the London and Seattle shows were outstanding and the Germany signing tour was just an amazing experience.  But as expected, I got home and hit the drawing table trying to make the next deadline.  Finishing up Wolf Moon issue 6 this weekend, so wish me luck!

With that out of the way, I’ll be heading to Cape Girardeau for Cape-Con.  It’s been a couple years since I’ve been there, and the guest list this year looks great.  Cullen Bunn is going to be there as well, so if you are a Wolf-Moon fan, be sure to bring your copies to be signed.

I’ll be set up with all the usual comics, prints, tees, and original pages from Batwoman, Constantine, Wolf Moon, and others.  If you want me to be sure to bring something specific, let me know!  I will also be doing commissions–simple head/shoulders at the show, but I do have a few full figure preorders still available.  If you would like more information about commissions for this show (or any other), drop me a line!

Back to the drawing board!

Convention Schedule 2015

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about which shows I will be attending this year, so I thought I’d do a quick post with confirmed shows for the year.  Much like every other year, I always say I’m not going to do so many, but in reality end up traveling just as much as last year!  I do enjoy traveling.  Not so much the airport part of it, but I love getting to visit cities all over the country and world.  I love seeking out the local food and the quirky attractions, admiring the architecture, and learning about the history of the places I visit.  Soaking in the culture is what I try to do!

Anyway, you all knew that. So here’s where I’m going to be this year.  If you want a commission, I will be taking pre-orders before all of the shows.  You can email me to find out more info and get on the list!

March 14-15 London Super Comic Con

March 16-21 Signing Tour in Germany  More info (hope you can read German!)

March 27-29 Emerald City Comic Con Seattle, Washington

April 17-19 Cape Comic Con  Cape Girardeau, Missouri

May 22-25 Denver Comic Con

May 29-31 O Comic Con Council Bluffs, IA

June 19-21 Heroes Comic Con Charlotte, NC

June 25-28 Florida Supercon Miami, FL

September 12-13 Cincy Comic Con Cincinnati, OH

October 8-11 New York Comic Con

There are couple more floating out there as possibilites, I’ll keep you posted of any additions to the list!  Also, if you organize conventions, and would like to invite me to your show for 2016, shoot me an email and we can discuss particulars.

Ok, back to the drawing table.  Lots to do before LSCC!

THE BUSIEST MARCH: LONDON, GERMANY, SEATTLE!

London


So in the midst of the DINO DAY Kickstarter and Constantine deadlines, I have a busy spring looming.  I will be heading overseas to my first ever appearance at London Super Comic Con March 14-15.  I get to spend a few days in London before the show. If you have any recommendations of the best places to eat–comment below!  You know finding the best a city has to offer is one of my favorite things to do when I travel.


Germany


Right after LSCC, we are heading off to a signing tour of Germany March 16th-21st.  I’ve never done anything quite like this before, but am excited to see Germany.  We arrive in Berlin and then head to Leipzig.  We will hit up Hamburg, Wuppertal, Bonn, Wurzburg, Frankfurt while we are there.


Seattle


As if that weren’t enough, three days after we arrive back in the states, we zip off to Seattle for Emerald City Comic Con.  My kids aren’t going to remember what I look like.  Oh, wait.  As long as I bring them back some legos or dinosaurs, they’ll be happy to see me.  Anyway, this is always a great show, great friends, and oh yeah, great food.


Commissions!


So I have commission lists going for all three events.  I have bust and full figure versions available in 9×12 and 11×17 sizes.  The lists are already filling up and space is limited, so shoot me an email at jeremyhaunart@gmail.com for more details today!

DINO DAY 52!!!

dinoday_52

It’s DINO DAY again!

…the last Dino Day.

I’m not going to lie, I got a little teary eyed early this morning when I was painting this one. It’s happening again now.

I didn’t know if I was going to finish this project. At times, when I was drowning in deadlines and chained to this desk day and night, I just wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to draw anything else. In spite of that, every single time it happened. The boys would come into the studio and ask what I was drawing for Dino Day and I’d hop to it. I’d put pen or marker or brush to paper, forget about all of that other stuff and draw a dinosaur.

Silly as it might sound, I think Dino Day kind of saved me over the past year. It was pure drawing for the sake of drawing. It was fun. Most of all it was something that I shared with my sons. …and of course with you.

So for today’s piece, #52, I sat down and just let go. It’s brush and ink and paper. It’s loose and fun and I loved it.

The piece was drawn on an 11×11 inch piece of vellum bristol board, using a #8 round brush and paynes grey FW acrylic artists ink. I used my inky brush water for the wash effect in the background.

And there you have it.

A bit of housekeeping, then–

We’re now in the finial week of the DINO DAY Art Book Kickstarter.  We are in the home stretch.  Exactly eight days left.  As of right now we are 87% funded. Crazy close. That’s all thanks to you.

DINO DAY #51!

dinoday_51

It’s DINO DAY again!

Fifty-one weeks. Wow. Here we are.

Today’s piece is a special piece. One that I’ve wanted to do since very early on in DINO DAY. It’s an ode to my sons. It’s all of my favorite things about this project combined into one piece of art. In spite of next week being the last piece of the project, this to some degree, is my grand finale.  I always have fun with the DINO DAY pieces and put a lot of love in them, but this time, I wanted to go all out.  I wanted this piece to reflect what I do in my day-to-day comic work.  This piece is special to me. Nothing is cooler than my kids riding through Downtown Joplin on the back of a T-Rex.  I really love this one. I hope you do too.

This piece is a whopper.  Done on 11×11 inch vellum bristol board, using a hunt 102 crow quill and a Rafael Kolinsky brush with Paynes Grey FW acrylic artist ink.

On to news about the DINO DAY Art Book Kickstarter.  We are just a bit past the halfway point.  Exactly fourteen days left.  We are 75% funded!  I am just blown away by the support you’ve shown and as a little extra thank you, I’ve added some cool freebies with every order!  Everyone who orders a physical copy of the book (or more) will get a DINO DAY SOCIETY button and a set of 3 mini-prints.  We still have the coolest reward left too–next week, for the final DINO DAY piece, I will custom draw a dinosaur for YOU. And it will be part of the book. And you get to keep the art.  But you have to get it before next Wednesday! There are lots of other fun pieces available along with prints and t-shirts.  Here is a link to the Kickstarter page. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jerhaun/dino-day-art-book-by-jeremy-haun.  Check it out if you haven’t and be sure to share with your friends.

Oh– and if you haven’t seen it yet, here is what the DINO DAY Art Book is going to look like. I’m so happy with it!

Okay, I’m going to go make some comics.

See you next week!

DINO DAY 50!

dinoday_50

It’s DINO DAY AGAIN!

We’ve hit the end of the first week of the DINO DAY Art Book Kickstarter and I’m absolutely blown away by the support for the project. We’re over 60% of the way to our goal and going strong.

With only three more Dino Day entries left, I wanted to go out strong and make each of them special. This weeks piece was a lot of fun. In school I loved stippling– creating an image with a series of dots. The effect is a lot of fun and creates a lot of depth and texture.

This piece features a Compsognathus and was done on an 8x8in piece of rough Bristol board in Copic Marker. Below you’ll see a list of the Copics I used. …easier than typing them all.

dinoday_50_colorchart

So there you have it, another Dino Day down. Just two to go. Wow…that kind of makes me a little emotional when I think of it.

If you haven’t already, please check out the DINO DAY Kickstarter page–

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jerhaun/dino-day-art-book-by-jeremy-haun

Today’s piece, and all of the others (except for the ones that have already sold) are available on the Kickstarter, along with a cool t-shirt, prints, and of course, the book itself.

Check it out. Also, please share it on social media. We appreciate it.

Okay, I finished my Constantine deadline AND today’s piece. I’m going to leave the studio for a bit and buy some fun nerd stuff. I deserve it.

See you next week!

DINO DAY 49!

dinoday_49

It’s DINO DAY again!

And this is a very special Dino Day. After forty nine weeks of doing this project with the boys, we launched the DINO DAY Art Book Kickstarter project. As I type this, we’re twelve hours into the thirty day Kickstarter and have already reached over $3000 of our $15,000 goal. I can’t begin to express what this means to me. This project has meant so much  to me over the past year. It was a chance to share and make art with my sons. Having you share in it is an absolute honor.

Just in time for the Kickstarter kick off, I’ve finished up the newest piece. We went a little silly with this one. It’s goofy. It’s a homage. And it’s another painting.

Today’s piece pays homage to one of our favorite scenes from Jurassic Park.  It was done using acrylic paints and just a bit of pen in a couple places, on a nice 10x10in piece of Arches watercolor paper.

If you haven’t already, please check out the DINO DAY Kickstarter page–

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jerhaun/dino-day-art-book-by-jeremy-haun

Today’s piece, and all of the others (except for the ones that have already sold) are available on the Kickstarter, along with a cool t-shirt, prints, and of course, the book itself.

Check it out. Also, please share it on social media. We appreciate it.

Okay, all of this painting and Kickstarting is hard work. I’m going to go take a nap.

See you next week!

DINO DAY 48!

dinoday_48

It’s DINO DAY again!

The LAST Dino Day of 2014! Wow. What a year it’s been, working on this project. I went back and re-read the first few Dino Day posts. It’s crazy to think that I’ve managed to get to the finish line on this project. I can see it. Right there in the distance. Just four more posts. Yeah. Crazy.

This week’s piece features the rather alien looking Amargasaurus. They’re odd looking and beautiful with their two rows of parallel spines running down their necks. I’ve wanted to draw one for months, but this is the first time I’ve managed to pull it off. It was done on a piece of bristol board using a plain old blue Bic Round Stic pen. I kind of love working in Bic pen. It reminds me of drawing on my notebooks in middle school…and high school…and college.

So yeah, as I’ve mentioned NEXT WEDNESDAY is the start of the DINO DAY KICKSTARTER. If you aren’t already, please hop over to https://www.kickstarter.com/profile/jerhaun and follow me. The moment it goes live you’ll get notifications and updates about the project. You can also follow me on my regular Facebook and Twitter pages or you can check out the official DINO DAY twitter page here– https://twitter.com/DinoDayKS.

Alright. That’s it for 2014. Have a happy and safe New Year!

See you next week!
