Ottawa ComicCon!

Oh it’s been 3 long years but I’m finally back at one of my favourite conventions, Ottawa ComicCon!

Happening May 12-14 at the EY Centre, Ottawa ComicCon is one of the biggest pop-culture events in Ontario. This year’s guests include Adam West, John Barrowman (swoon) and Peter Frikkin’ Capaldi (AKA the current Doctor Who).

This year I’m in the exhibitor area so I have a larger booth. This is very exciting! Lots of space to play with!

Here’s a list of the other exhibitors and artists (Notice who’s name is at the top of the exhibitors list? Oh yeah…I’m a big deal*) – EXHIBITORS

*I know my name goes first because of the alphabet. SHUT UP I’M COOL

For even more guest info and details head on over to http://www.ottawacomiccon.com and get the skinny. Do people still say “get the skinny”? Well I just did so yes they do.

See you soon!

Flash & Arrow

It’s a new Calvin and Hobbes piece!

Obviously based on the CW shows The Flash and Arrow, starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/Flash and Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow.

Infinite thanks to Bill Watterson for creating these characters.

I couldn’t decide between which versions to use so this piece comes in both coloured background and white.

Available NOW!

VADER

I’ve done art based on the Dark Lord of the Sith from Star Wars before…but definitely not like this.

The first Darth Vader piece I created was Hello Kitty related. The second was a photo-realistic design based on one of the Ottawa members of the 501st Legion (Star Wars cosplayers that create incredible film-accurate costumes). This time however I wanted to do my own version.

Like a lot of people I enjoyed Rogue One. Like a lot of people I really enjoyed the sequence at the end of the film featuring Darth Vader. I set out to do a piece that paid homage to that scene, but with more colour.

Vader was done on 10×15 watercolour paper with pencil, watercolour pencils and light acrylic touches.

Reduce Re-use Recycle

A while ago I did a post on the art of the revisit. I’m a fan of going back to old work and enhancing it, altering it or in some instances completely redoing it. One area of this that I’d not considered until recently was print manipulation.

In the process of selling your work via prints, many things happen. You may print more copies of a particular work than you’d like; you may have a printing error on a series of prints; or you may fall out of love with a particular print and want to remove it from your repertoire. This has occasionally left me with extra prints. Recently I revisited some prints using some of my new watercolouring skills.

Not only was I pleased with the results, but with each of these pieces I’ve decided to replace existing prints with these new coloured prints. Fans of my work can look forward to seeing them at Ottawa ComicCon in May.

It pays to revisit, folks!

Randi and Rhapsody

These are two ladies who are near and dear to me. They also happen to be great muses. Here’s a little watercolour work based on them. Expect more art starring these two beauties throughout 2017.

Toronto ComiCon!

Hey kids! Do you like nerdy things? Do you live in Toronto? Then join me and thousands of other folks at this year’s Toronto ComiCon, happening March 17-19 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre!

I’d go on and on about the booths, guests and activities but let’s face it, you’re only going there to see me anyway…

…I kid. But seriously, come to this.
