FIREBOMB BY SEAN CHEN

I went to the Big Apple Con here in NYC this past weekend and got some pretty great sketches. I didn't have a table at this con because I hate the way they run the show. But I went to say hi to some people I know and get some art. The first person I hit up for a sketch was Sean Chen. Sean started drawing comics at Valiant and worked on X-O Man of War, Bloodshot, Rai and Harbinger. Then he moved on to Marvel and drew Iron Man for a few years and also Wolverine and Elektra. Most recently he drew X-Men: The End. Sean is a super nice guy and really fast. I think he had my sketch finished within an hour. Just looking at it you can tell he didn't rush either. I love his interpretation of Firebomb.

Yeah, your Psylocke piece is awesome Jamie. Some day you'll have to post some of your commission somewhere for people to see. You've gotten a lot of great sketches over the years.

was it "busy" at the con? I figured not to bother b/c of the fact that Lazenby was the headliner....

of course the fact that I'd only be promoting the book and not the radio show may had a hand in that!

Well then do it already, Jamie, lol.
Hey, Mark! Nice surprise to see you post on here. The con wasn't that busy at all. Kind of sad to think how it once was. It looked even more disorganized then before and somehow felt dirtier than I remember it. :(

Just becaue I am quiet doesnt mean I'm don't visit.

Mike is stuck between a rock and a hard place with the NYCC breathing down their throats.

And the fact that he's a little crazy (but in that good way) doesnt help matters.

Speaking of the NYCC, I'll see you there!

lol, good to know, Mark. :)
I understand how it must be for the Apple Con, but they should really try to organize better. But that's never been one of their strong points.
Definitely see you at NYCC! Looking forward to it.
