Dragon*Con, Wadd at Comic Book Script Archive and More!

Hey Everybody!

Back in the studio today after a long weekend at the Dragon*Con artist's alley in Atlanta. It was my first time at the show and I had a great time with my Garage Art Studios cohorts. I made 2 new prints for the show, here's a look at them--

And here's a look at a few of the commissions I drew up while we were out there--

Like I said, I had a great time-- Excited to hopefully hit it up again next year. Before that though, be on the lookout for Garage Art Studios a little closer to home at the 2nd Annual Long Beach Comic-Con where I'm planning on rolling out even more new 11x17 prints.

On a completely different note- you can now check out my script and pitch for the Tell Them Johnny Wadd is Here comic book at Tim Simmons' invaluable Comic Book Script Archive. If you have any interest in writing comics, the CBSA should definitely be in your bookmarks folder. Over there you can find scripts from Warren Ellis, Brian Bendis, Matt Fraction, Neil Gaiman and also... me. One of these things is not like the other. In any case, here's some of what they had to say over there:
...I had talked to Tony about getting the Wadd script, and I was stoked that he actually sent over his original pitch for the comic as well– The Pitch is REALLY worth checking out– Our previous examples (Costa’s Hawksmoor and Warren Ellis’ Planetary) don’t fit the typical mold of what you should be writing in a pitch doc– Tony’s Wadd pitch is much closer to what you should be aiming for.

Additionally, since Tony has done it all (Art, Lettering, Coloring, etc,) his script is well worth checking out– Because he’s worked in various positions on other writers scripts, he knows how to call attention to certain details that might be overlooked. In particular, I really dig how he highlights notices for the colorist.
There you go. Again, you can check those out over at the Comic Book Script Archive.

And Finally, If you've been keeping up with me on Twitter, you may have noticed I've been selling some Marvel Artist Proof Card commissions from the Marvel 70th card set on ebay lately. I'll be selling more in the next few days so if you're a sketch card collector, keep an eye out for those.

Speaking of sketch cards, I'm contributing sketches to the Marvel Heroes and Villains set (which comes out in a couple months) and also the Bettie Page Private Collection set (which'll be out next summer.) So if you're into the original card art, check me out on both of those.

Ok, that's all for now- I'll be back with new art soon!
