Lately everyone I know has been posting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle drawings so I thought I would do one. I don't think I've actually drawn them for over twenty years, if ever. Best part was I finished it in a day, which is amazing because I usually take forever.

So this one was for Andy. It took forever, for no apparent reason other than I'm lazy and maybe cause it was the first double page spread I've ever done. You think staring at one blank 11x17 page is intimidating, try two. I almost tore it apart and started over multiple times, but pulled it out of a nosedive at the end and now I'm somewhat happy with it.
Oh and it's all the Flashes as Blue Lanterns, with a little redesigning on Jay Garricks costume.
So Wednesday I drove down with Tom Nguyen and Keith Champagne for their signing at Limited Edition Comics in Iowa. I usually go into these things with the mindset that I'm basically the assistant to all these guys and I'm just there to hang out and be a gopher or whatever. So it is always surprising and nice when people want sketches from me too. I spent the day drawing pretty much non stop.
The guys at the comic store are great. Rob, the owner, is always super nice and makes you feel really welcome and his customers made me feel like a pro. Going to Limited Edition is much more fun than the local cons where you're just another random table that people walk by.
Thanks again to Rob and everybody at LE Comics, you guys are freakin awesome!
So here's some pics of sketches and me with the guys....

Well Spring Con is over. I didn't make a whole lot of money, but most people I talked to agreed that people weren't buying much. So here is some of the stuff I did for people, I apologize for the crappy phone pics. I got to do my first blank cover, which was a little intimidating. Tom ended up inking it, so above is the before and after. My fave is "Dream Girl" (the cheesecake-y pinup), apparently she is a member of the Legion. Today someone wanted a Macho Man head sketch which I ended up enjoying quite a bit. Although I didn't sell that much it was still fun and I got to talk to a few cool people. All in all not bad, but I don't think I'll do another con until I have a book out....

Here we have one of the most awesome pieces I've had the privilege or working on! The mighty Pat Gleason agreed to collaborate with my lowly self on this fine piece. At first we were going to do some DC characters and then maybe Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow, but I wanted to see Pat draw a Marvel character. I drew Havok and Pat drew Phoenix and he inked the piece as well. It came out much better than I expected and is already framed and hanging on my wall. So if you want a copy, stop by my table this weekend and pick yours up!

I forgot to put this up a couple months ago. Pat did a variant cover for GLC #53 and as usual I was around when he was drawing it. He of course knows my love for Natu and snuck in my intials in her ear. So if you look closely you can see "JE", neat huh?
