Worldcon


Worldcon came to Japan and it was a blast!

Though this is the first time I've ever gone with the main purpose of helping my creative career by meeting people and getting advice and let the fanboy stuff come second. A close second I might add. I did get a lot of great advice from publishers and artists alike. One of my faves, Michael Whelan was especially helpful and I got to look at the originals of some of my favorite works!

The "fan" film Star Trek New Voyages with George Takei was amazingly good. I met a lot of interesting people at the parties. I showed my portfolio to as many people as possible. And I got some books signed and a few sketches from the pros. I also got to show my friend and co-conspirator Sonic what a con is like in the States.
Overall a very good experience!

This is a piece for my upcoming movie-themed art show. I'm going to try and finish two more pieces by tomorrow.

Lighthouse Illustration

I was suddenly possessed by the desire to draw lighthouses. Inspired by the work of Don Kenn, Edward Gorey, and H.P. Lovecraft. First in a possible series.

DSC 19 - Cable & Baby Deadpool

I like it when heroes aren't too serious. Kyle Baker's turn on Plastic Man, Flaming Carrot, Megaton Man, normalman, The Tick are all favorites of mine. I think I like Deadpool for the same reasons.
