THE ROAD TO SDCC (PART 1)!
I'm exhausted. Like everyone else, I've been working like a madman getting ready for Comic Con. The show is just two days away and it's going to be run and gun right up until then. All of that said, things are coming along really well. I JUST got the printer proof for THE BEAUTY: SDCC BOOTLEG EDITION. Everything came out just right, it's been approved, and I'll have them in hand by tomorrow morning. As I've said a few times, I'm really excited about this book. Designing a down and dirty "zine" type edition of The Beauty was a lot of fun. I can't wait for everyone to see them.
Oh, also, I've still got a few full figure sketch slots available for SDCC. If you're interested in one, drop me an email so we can set one up before the show. Spots are filling up quick and there may not be any left by the time the shows starts. I'll still be doing my usual head and shoulder sketches at the show, but if you want a full figure sketch, don't miss out!
Alright, I'd better get back to it. I'll pop back on again soon with an update or two on the road to SDCC!

SDCC 2012 EXCLUSIVES!!!
This year at SDCC I'm going to have TWO exclusive items just for the show! We're going to have them both available in limited quantities at the Top Cow booth #2629.
THE BEAUTY: SDCC 2012 BOOTLEG EDITION
The Beauty, which I drew and co-wrote with my good buddy Jason A. Hurley was part of Top Cow's 2011 Pilot Season. Thanks to so many of you, the book not only won Pilot Season, but immediately sold out. Since then, at every show I've attended, I have had a constant stream of people looking for the The Beauty. Hurley and I talked with Top Cow and we decided that the only answer was to do a fun, ultra limited edition, black and white edition of the book. It contains the entire twenty two page, fully lettered story. We also did a fun back and forth, talking about the book and what to expect with it in 2013.
THE BEAUTY: SDCC 2012 BOOTLEG EDITION is going to be $10 and will be limited to 75 copies.
DARKNESS #105 WHILCE PORTACIO SDCC EXCLUSIVE VARIANT COVER
Not only is this the final part of my first arc on The Darkness and possibly the most messed up single issue of comics this year, but the SDCC exclusive variant ALSO has an amazing variant cover by WHILCE PORTACIO. I seriously love this book. I'm hella excited to see it.
THE DARKNESS #105 WHILCE PORTACIO SDCC EXCLUSIVE VARIANT COVER is is going to be $10 and will be limited to 500 copies.
So if you're going to be at Comic Con next weekend, be sure to come by the Top Cow booth, say hi, and check out these fun convention exclusives. There MIGHT be something cooler at the con...but I doubt it.
See you there!

COMIC CON 2012!
Comic Con is just a week away and I'm going to be there again this year! What's the big change this year? I'm going to be actually setting up at the show for the first time in over five years, as a part of the Image/Top Cow booth (#2629). Sure, I've had signing times and done panels, but I haven't actually had a dedicated space in a while.
As with other conventions that I usually set up at, this year at SDCC I'm going to offer original pages, sketchbooks, a few prints, AND I'll be taking commissions during the show.
At most every show, I've been taking head and shoulder only commissions. There have been occasional exceptions to this rule, but I've tried to keep it at that. This year at SDCC I'll be taking EIGHT full body commissions in addition to the usual head and shoulder sketches. All sketches will be done on 9x12 board (or comparable sized sketchbook) in pen and ink with Copic marker color
Here is the price breakdown and sample of the sketch types --
Head and Shoulders- $60.00
Full figure- $120.00
My sketch list has been filling up pretty quickly, there are only a limited number of slots. That said, I am willing to take pre-orders in order to insure placement on the list. If you are interested, please send me an email (you can easily find my address here on the site) and we'll get one set up. If not, be sure and line something up early. As much as I want to do a sketch for everyone, things get pretty tough the last bit of the last day and I can't guarantee something for everyone.
So there you go, I'll have tons of fun stuff at the booth and will be there hanging out and having a good time.
Here is a fun map of the show to let you know where I'll be.
I shouldn't be hard to miss at BOOTH #2629 with Top Cow, between the huge Image and Marvel booths.
ALSO, before the end of the week, I'll announce a couple of exclusive items that I'm going to have at SDCC. It's going to be some pretty fun stuff. Can't wait to tell you about it.

See you at Comic Con!

HEROES CON 2012 PHOTO PARADE!
Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC is easily one of my favorite conventions of the year. It's a show that is about comics and art. Shelton Drum and his crew put on a con that always feels like family. This year was the 30th anniversary of Heroes and it was a heck of a good time.
This year started out a little rough, working up until the minute I left for the show and then having a couple of unexpected travel hiccups along the way. Quickly though, things turned around and it ended up being a weekend of time with great friends, excellent conversation, some amazing food, tons of sketching, and hanging out with the best fans a guy could ask for.
Here is a quick photo parade of the show. As usual, it's all about hanging out, lots of food, and sketching for me. Hope you dig it!
So there you have it. Heroes was a great time. I'll be back every year. Thanks so much to everyone from Heroes Con and all of the fans for making it such a fantastic show.
Between cons and drawing the Darkness I've been pretty crazy busy lately. As I type this I'm just a week away from SDCC. I've got some announcements that I'm going to be making about that this week. Check back soon!

HAUN INKS LEE!
We've seen a lot of artists ink that Jim Lee "Batman" piece that's been floating around recently. This one might be the the best of them...not that I'm partial at all.
