This Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 1, 2 and 3), I'll be at the Wizard World Philly Comicon along with Neverminds artist, Jamie Fay . We've been to this show a few times now and Philadelphia is also my home town, so we really enjoy it there. Philly is home to some of the nicest comic fans around! So, if you're in the area and at the show, please stop by and say hello. We'll be in Artist Alley at table 2009.
We'll be selling all 5 Sentinel trades, issues #1 and 2 of NeverMinds and I'll also have my "Sketch A Day" Sketchbook and our collab book with Luchador Enterprises, Comicon On Monster Island!
We will also be displaying the first two Drumfish Production figurines! The figurines are finally being shipped to us this week and are expected to be ready to send out orders mid-June! We'll be taking pre-orders at the convention and online here. Place your order fast as we are limiting how many we make and we're already over halfway sold out!
Jamie and I will also both be selling prints at the show and doing commissions!
Hope to see you all there!

This super cool pic of Alanis Munroe from NEVERMINDS was drawn by Ivan Camelo. This is part of (NEVERMINDS artist) Jamie Fay's collection and I think it's awesome! Ivan has developed a very cute and interesting style. Check out his art here and you'll find you end up spending a lot of time there looking through his gallery!

This week's character for Illustrious Bits is the X-Men's time-traveling alternative future daughter of Cyclops and Jean Grey, Rachel Summers Grey. I always found this character very interesting. She was one of the best written character in the hands of Chris Claremont and even took over the mantle of Phoenix for a time. But after Claremont left, it seemed like many writers didn't know what to do with her. So, lol, of course they added to her time-traveling confusion and made her go into the way future and be a protector of her sort-of-brother, Cable. I'm not even going to try to explain it. But it's total comic book soap opera wackiness at it's best. She's been back in the present for a while now and I haven't followed her story too much, but I hear that their isn't much of a story for her at the moment. I decided to do this quick sketch of her in one of my favorite looks that she had. Lol, even though she had a semi-mullet! Gotta love the spiked costume!

I was originally planning on just drawing Supergirl and Batgirl and making a print of them. But then, DC Nation did the "Super Best Friends" short cartoons, and I had to add Wondergirl into the mix. I'm hoping to get this colored soon!

Jamie Fay and Danielle Alexis St. Pierre (the amazing art team on Drumfish Productions' NEVERMINDS) were asked to contribute to the New York Times GLBT & Aliies Network's Gay Pride Celebration.
There will be 10 posters on display for the month of June in the buildings cafeteria. Each poster will show a variety of categories like Entertainers, Trendsetters, Politicians, and Power Duos to name a few. For the first time, Comicbook Characters will be added to the mix. Jamie and Danielle said that they were honored to have been asked to participate and provide their art.
Each poster will have a list of at least 5 people in each category who has made an impact on the GLBT community. The comic board ranges from mainstream to indie comics, a range of the community and all honored for their achievements:
Karma - One of the first openly Lesbian mainstream comicbook characters and for being a mentor/teacher to a new generation.
Mystique - Iconic Bisexual character in mainstream comics. She is known by many, including people who don't read comics.
Northstar - First openly Gay superhero in mainstream comics.
Batwoman - First openly Lesbian character to have a critically acclaimed on-going series and the first GLBT character to wear an iconic mantle.
These characters were chosen and Jamie and Danielle were happy to draw/color them. They were already asked if we would like to participate next year and after seeing the first few of these, they were asked to contribute to 2 other boards this year. Still to come, they are drawing Shatterstar and Rictor for the Power Duo board (both bisexual men in a gay relationship) and Solstice from Teen Titans for the board focusing on Allies to the GLBT community.

The ever reliable, Chris Moreno, drew this sketch of Samanya from NEVERMINDS. Chris never disappoints with his sketches and this pic totally shows why. Chris also has a new kickass book out called Zombie Di@kheads. If you want to read something new and fun being done with Zombies, check it out here.
I couldn't believe that I had never gotten a sketch from Josh C. Lyman before this years Pittsburgh Comicon. I don't know why that never happened, since I always liked him and his work. This year, I made sure to seek Josh out and get him do draw this AMAZING sketch of Viperella from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS. Check out all the detail he put into ths! Please take a closer look at Josh's work here.

This sketch of Electron from SENTINELS was drawn by Stephen Wittaak at the 2011 Pittsburgh Comicon. Stephen is a super cool guy, very talented and soon to be a new papa! Wishing him and the lovely, Stefanie, a very happy and healthy addition to the family! Please check out more of Stephen's work at http://portcityunderground.net/

This sketch of Splash from SENTINELS was drawn by NEVERMINDS colorist, Danielle Alexis St. Pierre at the 2012 Pittsburgh Comicon. This was Danielle's first time at the Pittsburgh Comicon and her first time ever behind the table at a convention! You wouldn't have known it though because Danielle handled herself like a pro! By the end of the first day she had a list of commissions and didn't stop until she had to leave on Sunday. She even took a few home to do. Luckily for me though, I got Danielle's first convention sketch ever! We had made a deal and did a sketch trade. I traded her a sketch of Death (from the Endless) in return for the sketch with this post. I totally got the better end of the deal here, lol. Thanks so much Danielle! I'm happy to have you among the many talented artists in my sketchbook! Please check out more of Danielle's work at http://witchysaint.deviantart.com/

I'm still trucking along with my sketches for Illustrious Bits. This week's subject was Lady Deathstrike. I did this sketch pretty quick and I'm going to try to make it a goal to add a little more perspective into my drawings. This one was kind of fun (and fast!).

This week's challenge on Illustrious Bits is any character from Transformers. Since I'm not a huge Transformers fan, I found this challenge a little difficult. I wanted to back away from it, but I couldn't stop myself and didn't want to miss a week of Illustrious bits, lol. I picked the Autobots leader, Optimus Prime in his cartoon look to draw.
