Convention Masters Recap

Last week I went to the Convention Masters Expo in NJ and left the event with some mixed feelings. This was the first time ever trying to exhibit my work at an event like this and felt like my work would be a no brainer for a martial arts comic convention. I met some very nice folks and ended up doing some commissions on Saturday but ended up not going there on Sunday.

Here are some photos of the location as well as some of the artwork I created while I was there on Saturday.

Convention Masters in AC

Next week I’ll be a guest at the Convention Masters Martial Arts Expo 9. I’ll have comics, shirts, prints, and will be doing commissions that weekend as well with a preview of First Fight #5 which will be coming out later this year.

Meditate with Mei

Haven’t posted recently because I’ve been focusing on getting Meditate with Mei finished and I’m excited to say that everything will be complete within the next several weeks. This has been a long term project with some starts and stops but things are moving along extremely well and a great way to end the year :)

SMALL PRESS EXPO

I went to SPX last week which is the best indie comic convention on the East Coast – super excited to have been accepted into the show and I was representing at Booth 13D. I showed off some new artwork that I’ve kept under wraps from prying eyes, along with some other goodies that I’ve been working on including work in progress pages of First Fight 5. In addition to showing artwork, I also made a very limited run of blank sketch book graphic novels of my Monsters of MMA series which was a big hit. Here’s a quick video of me doing a sketch cover which was a lot of fun. My only gripe is the Duracel Power Bank which I brought with me to charge up while at conventions but alas the piece of junk stopped working over only using it once. Sadly I did not get photos of everything I sketched while I was at SPX but I managed to capture a bunch of them below. All in all, it was a great show and I hope to be at SPX 2015 as well.

Wizard World Recap

This weekend was certainly a busy one for my table mate, John Still, and I this weekend. This was without a doubt my most successful convention having first showed my artwork at the Wizard World Philly five years ago. We even got the chance to collaborate on a commission which was a portrait of someone as the Winter Soldier. It reminds me of a more current Frank Miller illustration :)

There were many highlights of the con for me and one in particular was a double Hulk commission that I did for two kids liked their piece so much they each went and got Lou Ferrigno to sign them both.

Wizard World Philadelphia

Super excited for this weekend where I’ll be rocking it at Table E38 at Wizard World Philadelphia from June 19th – 22nd at the Convention Center. I’ll have some exclusive prints along with some t shirts as well and am looking forward to seeing many regular attendees there who I’ve seen there for the last five years. My exclusive print for the show can be seen on the Wizard World Facebook page:

This is actually an updated version of a previous piece I had made for a videogame art show and it was called Punched Out. Here’s some preliminary sketches I had done from a couple years back before I went ahead and made this final version.

  One other thing to note that I had the opportunity to train with Anton Berzin,
who is a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He competed recently in the 19th
season of the Ultimate Fighter. I met him at Balance HQ and he was kind
enough to not only pick up some comics but also to pose with a couple issues
as well.

Yesterday went extremely well and I’m still waiting to hear how the funding did but I was extremely happy to have raised $140 in the three hours I was able to be at the event doing sketches and commissions. Below are some pictures from the event as well as some of the drawings I did too.
