playing catch up
i just wanted to post this up before i forget to do it again. i am slightly overwhelmed at the fact that San Diego Comic Con is less than 2 weeks away. and by slightly, i mean i'm kinda sorta just running in circles trying to figure out how to be ready.
anyway, these are the commissions i did at Wizard World Philly, which seems like years ago but really it was only like 4 weeks ago. i didn't do very many but lately i've been noticing that maybe my girly art is getting drowned out at the table with the fun superhero stuff. i dunno, that's a topic for another entry.
btw, that super cool dude giving me the sideways thumb is Harvey Tolibao. ridiculously talented dude and a filipino brother! i dunno if they're just coming out of the woodworks lately or if i've just been paying more attention lately, but there are some really super filipino comic artists! it's so amazing! i mean, amazing to me, maybe not to others. mostly because i guess as i was growing up, art and drawing were never an option. there were only a few avenues that were available - accounting, nursing, or (the more popular modern choice) computer programming. and yet, here they are, filipino artists based out in the philippines! pretty flippin neat.
anyway, Mr. Tolibao was ridiculously friendly and he seemed to like my art. he was kind enough to have me draw that X23 sketch in his sketchbook that he'll be showing his wifey. (or maybe he was just being nice - either way, i'll take it!) just all around cool dude. and he can draw things with a ballpoint pen that i've never known possible.
if i can steal another moment away from sketchcards and inking pages, i'll post stuff from Heroes Con. =)
