Wow- sorry for the delayed posts. Trying to get a bunch of deadlines done before the holidays, which unfortunately I can't show just yet. So for now, I'll just post some thing lying around and catch up the last few weeks.
The first thing I wanted to mention was how amazing lluXcon2 was. And yes...if you click on that link you will see IlluXcon 3 is already in the works. If you would like to attend, think about it now, because tickets are very limited. It was designed to be kept intimate and small, and they are sticking by that.
The Wilshires (responsible for IlluXcon) have also released a very cool book called Visions of Never
It covers art from very awesome, but slightly under the radar artists like Rohb Ruppel , Marc Fishman and Mark Zug (among others) . I think I've seen it at really good prices too, so check it out if you are into that sorta thing.
I'll include some photos of my booth at IlluXcon. Not to show off my scruffy mug, but some of you might be interested in seeing how some of my originals look.
I grabbed these off various forums. websites, so thanks to those who took these pics!
And although I look sad, I was just sketching and practicing my inks. Those inks are hard!! Here's one of the more successful ones that day:
Lastly, I stumbled across this image on my older HD the other day and thought it might be fun to share:
I guess you can say this is a variant version I did for myself while I did this card art for Magic: The Gathering / WoTC a few years ago. The image I did for them was this
I think I was just messing around at the time and made a version without all the flames. It's a little rough and unfinished, but it may be worth a gander.
Last bit -some of you have inquired about prints and such. Well there is good news. I am in the discussion phase of getting a webstore! No seriously- -I really am . It's only been 5 years of procrastination but I think it is safe to say in 2010 I will finally have a place where prints and art will be easy to purchase. If there are any suggestions of what you would like to see, I'd love to hear them. That goes for any images you would like to see available as prints too.
