Flash commission

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.

More sketches....

I'm happy with most of them. Some were a little rushed because I had people waiting, but I think they turned out decent. I'm still amazed when someone wants me to draw on a blank comic cover, I don't want to ruin their book :)

Limited Edition Comics signing......two years later.

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....
