Bidding Wars on Apokolips

Apokolips (AKA eBay) is selling original art to benefit Hero Initiative, the charity that helps comic book creators in medical or financial need.  Here’s the LINK to the page for my “Wake Up and Draw” original, but the Hero Initiative is listing many delicious, mouthwatering waffles auctions.

Birthday for a King!

Time to celebrate Jack “King” Kirby’s birthday with Wake Up and Draw…and Waffles!  It’s always fun to see a blast of sketches appearing across the internet every August 28th.  The drawings are auctioned off to benefit the Hero Initiative.  Here’s a link to a bunch of the drawings on comicartfans.com

Emerald City Comic Con 2013 Art Book

I’m happy to announce that I have a drawing in the Monsters & Dames 2013 Art Book, available exclusively at Emerald City Comic Convention, March 1-3.  This piece depicts an encounter between the Spider Cleric and a halfling rogue.  The Spider Cleric is featured with an illustration in the 13th Age core book, but the spiders haven’t hatched from their eggs in the core book illustration.  I suppose technically this image is a spoiler!  But that is appropriate for the character.  And speaking of characters, I’m still open for commissions between now and ECCC.  Any of the characters that you have seen in my 13th Age Gallery or on the Pelgrane website or the 13 True Ways Kickstarter are fair game for commission requests.  Yes, even the Devil of Fangs.

In addition to this image being included in the Monsters & Dames 2013 Art Book, it will also be a part of the ECCC Charity Art Auction benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital.  The auction is held during the convention (maybe Saturday evening?), and not only will this image be available as an 11″x14″ print, I will also include the original drawing of the Spider Cleric.  This is a charcoal drawing on 14″x17″ Strathmore paper.

Thanks for your interest and, again, I hope to see you in Seattle March 1-3!
