This was the second large drawing I did for HeroesCon’s Sunday’s Silent Auction. After I finished the Fantastic Four piece, I knocked this one out in about half an hour Saturday afternoon. Not the best set of photos of it, but hey.

Here are more art commissions I did at HeroesCon last weekend. (Part 2)

I went to HeroesCon 2014, and aside from taking photos of my own drawings that I knocked out at the show, I did an awful job at taking photos of all the great people I travelled and shared a hotel with, people I met, friends I hadn’t seen in awhile. So, here are the four photos I took that weekend that weren’t of my stupid drawings. From the top:

Kim Swanson, with his Doctor Who drawing.

Recoil Comics publisher and artist Rich Tommaso.

Underrated cartoonist Sam Spina, during the last hour of the show.

Atomic Elbow editor/publisher and FLUKE coordinator Robert Newsome.

RECOIL AT HEROES CON 2014

richtommaso:

Here are some pics of RECOIL and Patrick Dean’s table at Heroes Con this past weekend. We did really well—sold a lot of Cold Crew comics. I believe they were the best seller next to Vikings’ End. No interest for The Cavalier Mr. Thompson graphic novel, but a lot for The Mysterious Case #1. Proving once again that 24 page comic books are America’s best entertainment value!  ;^)

This is a large Fantastic Four drawing I donated to the Sunday Silent Auction at this year’s HeroesCon in Charlotte, NC. I penciled it in my hotel room the Friday night after my friends and I got back from dinner and inked it Saturday afternoon behind my table in Indie Island. 

RECOIL ROCKS HEROESCON

HeroesCon starts Friday! Me and a carload of Athens and Atlanta folks will be coming up to Charlotte, NC to sell comics, artwork, and socialize with people we maybe see only once a year. Sure I like going to browse around the bins of beat-up 60’s comics, cheap art books, sell comics and sketches, but mostly I enjoy meeting people and bouncing around from bar to hotel rooms talking with other cartoonists in the evenings. 

I will be driving up with Rich Tommaso, Joey Weiser, and Scott Dryman. FLUKE coordinator and the man behind wrestling’s greatest zine The Atomic Elbow, Robert Newsome, will be driving into town late Friday night. Rich Tommaso will have his line of Recoil comics for sale, including Dry County #2 and my own comic, Cold Crew, both making their debut at the show. Joey Weiser will have his Mermin books available, with original art and commissions too. Newsome will not only have copies of The Atomic Elbow, but the two of us will be selling FLUKE t-shirts and FLUKE comic anthologies. 

I will have issues of Big Deal Comics & Stories #11, 12, 13 and 14 available. If you like ghost stories, romance, heartbreak, and anxiety, then these are the comics for you. 

Cold Crew will be making its debut at the show. This is a copy from an early test run. The final run will be slightly bigger, I think. It’s a crime/horror comic rolled into one mean lil’ story. 

There will also be a stack of original art for sale, mostly of black & white ink drawings of various monsters for ten bucks. In addition to these, I will be open to commissions through the weekend. For ten bucks, I will do a sketch of a character with one spot color, either in your sketchbook or a separate sheet of paper. I will be packing up a pint of india ink, brushes and pen nibs to ensure that whatever I draw looks good. I charge $10.00, but really I’m putting $12.00 of effort into it. If I’m feeling wild, then maybe it will be more like $14.75 of work. By Sunday and I have a lot of time on my hands, you might even get a $18.23 drawing for the bargain of $10.00 In any case, I hope you’ll be happy.
See you this weekend.
