I THINK SOMEONE SNEEZED ON ME AT THE CON.

Baltimore Comic-Con is over. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and the folks that dealt with my super-awkwardness when I wandered up to say hi. I did some sketches and, unlike last year, I remembered to document the work. I mean, they're shitty phone pictures but that's better than nothing, right? So here are some things I drew...

Baltimore Comic-Con 2010 Sketches.

Clockwise from the top left: Phantom of the Paradise (um, Phantom of the Paradise), The White Stripes, Watch and Ward (The Venture Bros -- returning Sept. 12), space chick, the Order of the Triad (The Venture Bros -- did I mention it starts again Sept. 12) and a punk rock Storm (X-Men).

Next up: Small Press Expo (SPX) in Bethesda, September 11 - 12. I'll be at table C3, hustling my wares.

THINGS TO PUT ON YOUR CHEST AREA.

"Poison" Shirts Now Available.

AHH. Baltimore Comic-Con is this weekend, and I will be in the Artists' Alley with Emma Rochon and Ariyana Suvarnasuddhi. We registered under The Society of the Okay, so that's how we'll probably show up in the program. Come find us at Table A214, because we can only amuse ourselves for so long. Here's the map. We're facing the lobby, so... I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing.

I'll be sketching all weekend. There will also be a variety of prints, a small selection of original art and these "Poison In Her Well" t-shirts, which are also available in my shop (same price, just plus shipping). Black ink on black American Apparel tees for extra-classiness. Available in XS - XL (unisex, size chart). Some sizes are ridiculously limited, by the way, especially XL.

The black print on black fabric is difficult to capture in a photograph, but the variation in texture (shininess of the ink against the fabric) creates a really cool, subtle effect. I made a video to demonstrate but quickly decided I didn't want to upload fifteen seconds of me just spinning around. Fuck it. Here's a crappy video for you to watch.

A SIAMESE CAT OF A GIRL.

Poison Shirt Design.

Apologies for the limited updates. It's been pretty go, go, go with ELLE's "Dirty Little Secret" series (s-so many ladies to draw). I think I failed to mention that there are exclusive illustrations in each issue of ELLE (at least for a few more months), so you should check those out. Yes, I realize I'm terrible at promoting myself.

I pulled a few late nights to get some new things going as well, including the pictured shirt design. As you can see, it's a design-y version of my "Poison In Her Well" poster. Printing this week. Black on black American Apparel shirts.

Oh. And SDCC happened. It was an exhausting but completely amazing event: I met some great new people (including acquaintances that had previously only existed in the digital realm), visited friends, fangirled, promoted my work, talked business, spent too much money... Even my day of mindless post-con recovery/wandering was wonderfully derailed by an impromptu visit to the WildStorm offices. Thanks to everyone who made my first SDCC a great experience.

And the conventions just keep coming. Next: Baltimore Comic-Con, August 28 + 29. Details soon. I promise.
