In honor of Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 being released, this week’s TBT is my original Sanrio-inspired print, featuring the now-famous characters in their original comic book designs. Below is the black & white inked piece, followed by the full-color version, which was completed with Copic markers.
Happy Wednesday, everybody! I had a blast at Little Apple Comic Expo this past Saturday and wanted to share a few highlights from the show:
Sketch cards of America Chavez and Laura Kinney, aka the All-New Wolverine (above); Rocket & Baby Groot and Captain Marvel (below)
Rocket and Baby Groot
These were compilations by various artists at the show centered around a specific theme; on the left, Spider-Man villains; and on the right, Batman villains (above)
Close-ups of my contributions: Green Goblin and Poison Ivy (ab0ve)
Sketch card commission of an Umbreon from “Pokémon” (above)
Did this last commission for a nice couple of their son as a Pokémon trainer, and Pikachu (above)
One more entry til the big day which means one more shameless plug. I’ll be at booth 713 Friday through Sunday and still have plenty of spots open for commissions. In addition to the prints I’ve posted so far, I’ll also have an exclusive print of Lord of the Rings’ Samwise Gamgee, as played by Comic Con guest Sean Astin (see below), which would make a great one-of-a-kind autograph piece (hint hint, wink wink)! I’ve also just completed new prints based on fan-favorites Agent Carter, Rocket Racoon and Groot (also see below). Hope to see you there!
Everyone’s favorite Hobbit…besides Bilbo
Everyone’s favorite SHIELD agent…sorta
Everyone’s favorite galactic guardians, unless you’re a Drax fan in which case, sorry.
Cute huh? Been dying to draw the little guy since his star-making turn in “Guardians of the Galaxy” a few months back. I’ll have this available as a print for sale tomorrow at FreeState Comicon in Lawrence, KS at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. I’ll also have some other new prints and I’ve got new comic book sketch covers available for commissions (including TMNT, The Walking Dead, and Avengers).
If you’re in the KC/Lawrence/Topeka area, come by and hang out. I mean, if nothing else I’ll have free candy. And who doesn’t love candy? That is free?
