Wonder-con's come and gone, we had a awesome time sketching chatting with folks over the weekend. It was great to finally meet a ton of people I'd only interacted with through this Internet thingy. Crazy-art-scientist's like Mark Behm, Sean "Cheeks" Galloway, Adam Ely and a ton of others were cool enough to swing by and pick up books. Watching Nick sell piles of his super-sweet hardbacks got me thinking I need to do a nice full color hardback edition in the coming months, maybe for the SDCC or possibly APE.

Here's a few of the sketches I did for those that picked up a copy, unfortunately I didn't get pics of most of them (Fallon can you get me a pic or scan of the Nightcrawler sketch!!)

my boo


Nicolas, booth babe, and yours truely


Thanks again to everyone that picked up copies of Nick and I's books, (especially all the cash strapped AAU students, no egg in your raman this week. I feel for ya, I too went hungry for art books when I was in school.)

Good for you man. Glad you got a book together. I need to as well. Maybe something for the next Ape. We can trade.

I had to double take at this photo Chris... Jet was starting to look like a third wheel....

Adam told me that you and Nick had a booth. I wish I could have been there. I have been checking out your blog recently. I didn't realize how good you had gotten. Well done man. Keep posting stuff and keeping us foreigners up to date.

Tell Nick and Jet I said hello. Talk to you sooner than later, hopefully.

Kyle Brown said...

some fine pictures mon frere, really like the Hulk, am honestly looking forward to your next picture post hint hint :)

Jon Colton said...

Loved your Batman. It's rare to see any type of facial expression from him so it's kind of fun. Your Hulk is good too, you hardly ever see him smile. Did you do that on purpose?

Aaron Wright said...
