Back from Comic Con...now time to work!!!

Hey all I'm back from Comic Con! Damn, it was crowded in Preview night...hell it was crowed every single day, including Sunday! It was really cool to be at the Image booth this year. I must thank Joe Keatinge over at Image for setting me up with a table, it was really cool of him to do that! My buddy Eric was suppose to share that table with me...but he just did the signings for the Tori Amos' COMIC BOOK TATTOO and after that went off to do his commissions. Eric is such a busy and talented friend, folks just love his work.
I ended up displaying my blue spider and sketchbooks on the table. I was selling copies of Pecks, Backspace and of course Krash Bastards from Image. I had Howard Shum sitting to my right...really cool dude we known each other for sometime now. Really dig on his art. On my left was Ryan Ottley the talent artist on Invincible. Well, a little later I'll post up some images and write some more about the Con.

The image above is a sketch I did up really quickly last night...just playing around. Let me know what you all think of it?

It was cool sitting next to you too, Axel!

Nice pic, Axel. I keep looking at the head and thinking how much it looks like a monster version of Conan!

Can't wait to see all the pics and stuff from the con.

One year I'll make it there... one day...
