Heroes Con 2011

I am going to start by saying that this was, by far, the best Heroes Con I've been to yet. I had a table on the corner between Evan Dorkin and Chris Schweizer, and right across the aisle from John Arcudi (who is writing B.P.R.D.) and Ryan Sook.

I got a lot of action at my table, got to talk to some of the coolest people in comics, and bought lots and lots and lots of stuff. I did lots of commissions and sketchbook pieces, and I sold a bunch of minis. I put some of the art I did this past weekend in this post, but I forgot to take pictures of everything, so there is a good chunk of art that's not here. To accommodate for that, I plan on doing a crazy amount of work this summer, so be prepared for lots of updates!

I did a Husk on the blank Avengers cover (pictured above) for a super nice guy named Jon.

I did this Hellboy (9"x12") for the art auction on Saturday. It was my first submission to the auction, and seeing all of the beautiful pieces this year inspired me to do something larger and with color for next year's auction (some of my favorite pieces were done by Brian Stelfreeze, Andrew Robinson, Eric Canete, Robbi Rodriguez, and Chris Stevens, but there were so many good entries that it's hard to remember them all.

A 4"x6" Harry Potter for my friend FalynnK's birthday!

I like me a scraggley Sirius Black.

Snape, being all Snapey.

Princess Leia holding a Happy Baby Rancor.

An Obi-Wan Kenobi sketch card that I did for Mark Brooks.

Arsenic and Old Lace.

90's Shark Dude, 4"x6" for Audrey Morris.

Yes, this is what you think it is.

If what you think it is is two superbros trying to relax after a hard day of fighting villains.

All in all, this was the best con ever. I can't wait to go back next year! I'm already excited about SPX and NYCC, so look for me walking around at both of those shows!

I think that happy baby rancor is the cutest thing you've ever drawn.
