It’s almost time for Emerald City Comicon! I’ll be set up in Artist Alley, booth AA-05, with a whole bunch of new prints and original art! In case you missed my earlier posts, I’m happy to say this year my submission for the Monsters & Dames Art Book was accepted! So if you’re at the show be sure to pick up a copy and get me to scribble something on it!
I’m also going to be donating an original piece to the ECCC Charity Art Auction that has some sentimental value for me. ECCC was the first convention that I had an Artist Alley table at, and it’s where I met my pal Matt Harding. He had just launched the kickstarter for his new comic, Popapocalypse. We talked a lot about it, and the world he’d created, a post-world war America where Corporations had developed super-soldiers based on their mascots. I really dug the whole idea, and one thing that really peaked my interest was a character that was going to be appearing in later issues- Mr.P.K.N.O.T., an evil mutated version of Mr. Peanut – I knew I had to draw him! I went to town on making him as weird as I could, and I ended up doing a limited print run of it.
After hanging on to the original for a while I figured it was time to get him off to a new home. I’m also going to be including one of the limited prints that was signed by Matt and myself. If you’re in the neighborhood, try to get out to the auction and bid on it!
You can also pick up copies of Popapocalypse from Matt at the show! He’ll be in Artist Alley, around the corner from me, at booth Z-02/03!
