SDCC

What's good y'all. Just to let y'all know, I decided at a very late date that I WILL be attending the San Diego Comicon (July 26th-29). Because I made the decision at such a late date, I do not have a table there. BUT. . .The Black Book WILL be available for purchase at the Brandstudio Press table. It will retail at $25 and I promise you it will be worth it. I got a preview copy a few weeks ago and it looks ****ing sick. I will also be signing at a few different tables while I'm there. I'll be at the 4kids/Chaotic table from 5-6pm on Friday and 1-2/2:30 on Saturday. I'll also be at the McFarlane table from 3-4pm on Saturday. So swing by and holla atcha boy.

And while I'm here, a few commissions I've finished up recently, Gambit and
Sleepwalker. They are for the same fellow but I wanted to do two slightly different style techniques since the characters are so different. Peace.

HI EVERYONE, THIS POST IS COMING FROM SKOTTIE YOUNG'S BLOG -



I THINK THIS NEEDS TO BE READ:



"When I became a man I put away childish things, including the desire to be very grown up."


C.S. Lewis said this when people asked him why he wrote books for children. This reminds me to keep in mind the origin of what I love most...drawing. Before I knew what Marvel or D.C. was, before I knew what a comic book, or super hero was, I drew pictures. I love drawing. I can't recall what I liked drawing the most, probably because I drew so much there is no way to remember. I drew all the time, with any tool that created a line on paper.

Amongst the contracts, negotiations, signings, failed projects, good and bad reviews, deadlines, tussles with editors and studio execs., 35 airports a year, the same convention halls over and over, and anything else that goes along with the professional artist label...it is easy for me to forget what I wanted to do this for.

I love drawing.

That's the end of it really. I love it. I love the kid that lives here no matter how many books I sell, or how much money I put in the bank. I need to remind myself to put away the childish "desire to be very grown up." and just put pencil to paper. I never used to need anyone to like what I drew. I didn't know to want it. I just wanted to turn a blank piece of paper into something, anything, just as long as it looked fun. An animal, a world that I have never seen, a twist on the world I have. Amongst all the things that have over shadowed that ideal, I have lost the child.

After hearing this quote, I wrote it down and pinned it on the bulletin board in front of my table. That's why these warm up drawings started happening. I always told myself I didn't have time to draw anything for fun, I had to work. But, like those parents who have kids and need to make time for them no matter what...I am reminding myself to do the same.

PLEASE GO TO SKOTTIE YOUNG'S BLOG AND COMMENT THERE

AND REMIND YOURSELF TO DO THE SAME

THANKX
