Discovering Special Edition NYC

BeerGalleysTomorrow I’ll be heading to New York to enjoy the city and attend Special Edition NYC June 6th and 7th.  I’ll have books, original art, and prints, as well as a galley of The Comic Book Story of Beer!  I’m hoping to meet many a beer enthusiast and perhaps gather some preorders for the book.  If you want some additional info on the book, please check out the website thecomicbookstoryofbeer.com.

Below is an image of “The Crustacean Agent” that I created specifically for Special Edition NY to be used as badge art:SENY_Badge_CROP_AHere’s a Robot 6 article with a couple other images for badges created by folks from Periscope Studio.

The Crustacean Agent originally appeared in the Monsters & Dames 2015 Art Book (see below).  The ECCC exclusive is currently sold out, but I’ll have a few prints available in NY.  Hope to see you there!MnD2014_McConnell_72dpi_B_Signed

The Elder Scrolls: Tales of Tamriel

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tales of Tamriel Book I: The Land is currently available and I spotted a copy or two at Powell’s on Burnside the other day.  I have a number of illustrations included and it’s a handsomely designed hardcover from Titan Books.  This book is sure to be appealing to anyone gearing up for the release of the video game Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited available June 9th.  Book II: The Lore will be out in September of this year and I’ll post more of my illustrations when that book is released.

13th Age Monthly and More

Life Drawing 2015

Following my previous post about Studio Paradiso, I decided to add some of the life drawing I’ve been doing this year.  I added a page to this website under the header Life Drawing Gallery.  I haven’t yet graduated to sessions longer than 45 minutes, but I’m hoping to work up to it this year.  Let’s see how I do! ;-)


Exclusive Confessional Advertoon

I’m providing something a little different today.  Most of my blog posts are news updates relating to the projects I’m working on or process posts, but today I’m presenting a sequential cartoon strip that I drew specifically for this blog.  It’s also unique because it’s autobiographical and expresses something I care passionately about.  I’m calling it an “advertoon” because its meant to support my friend’s business, but I compiled this series of images simply because I wanted to express something important to me.  Thanks for taking at look.
