Sketchbot V5 NYCC Pre-Release

New York Comic Con is right around the corner, and I'm excited to return to NY to participate in my fourth NYCC.  I won't have my own booth this year, so I'll be doing the pre-release of Sketchbot Variant 5 with my good friends over at the My Plastic Heart booth, #879. Signing times have yet to be locked in, but I should be making an appearance sometime on Friday.  I'll have a small batch of brand new Sketchbot t-shirts on hand, along with a new, ltd. edition NYCC giclee print.  Be sure to check back for actual signing time and a view of the print and t-shirts that I'll have on hand!

Sketchbot X Stikalicious = iPad Wallpaper Fun!

This is pretty big news - I've been included in Series 1 of Chocoloate Soop's awesome new iPad app, Stikalicious!

The app is a free download and includes one complimentary sticker set. You can then make in-app purchases of your favourite artist's sticker sets, including custom backgrounds that you're free to mix 'n match any way you see fit.

As a extra bonus, I've designed two brand new, exclusive Sketchbots for Series 1 - Yellow variant w/crayon and Jet Black variant w/rapidograph.  I've also broken out the accessories, so you can choose from your favourite drawing tool to include with your wallpaper creations.

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with - be sure to eMail links to your Stikalicious wallpaper images.  Have fun!

Stop It! for Super Cooper's Munky King Show

It's been a busy Summer, so let's try to catch up on some blog posts!

I was excited to be part of "Super" Cooper Berella's huge birthday celebration group art show that opened a few weeks ago at Munky King LA.  The show runs through this Friday, Sept 25th, so try to check out the work up close if you have the chance.

Below are some work-in-progress shots as I work on the digital painting on my Wacom Cintiq using Corel Painter 12.  The digital giclée turned out nicely using Epson's Stylus Pro 3880.
