Upcoming Conventions! Baltimore, Austin, NYCC, Vegas, Long Beach, ComicKaze & More!!

Hey Y'all!

The fall convention season is about to kick off and I'm all over the place. Here's your complete guide of where to find me and buy stuff (please buy stuff, I just paid off my college loan in one giant painful fell swoop...)

Here's a look at a couple of the new prints I'll have at all these shows-

--If I don't screw up, I'll have a very special new set of prints just in time for NYCC-- check back here next month for info on that.

If you're interested in pre-ordering commissions for any of these shows, shoot me an email. Pre ordering's a great way to get me to spend a little extra time on a piece because I'm a silly perfectionist and if I've got the time at home, I'll spend it getting your piece right.

Ok, enough of that, here's my con Schedule...

September 8th & 9th, 2012 - Baltimore Comic*con
I'll be out in Baltimore (where I was born, btw) early next month with my buddies Josh Fialkov and Chris Ryder!

Be on the lookout for the Baltimore Comic-Con 2012 Yearbook : Liberty Meadows. A limited edition art book celebrating Baltimore Comic*Con and the 15th anniversary of Frank Cho's Liberty Meadows. Featuring art by Frank Quitely, Brandon Peterson, Gene Ha, David Petersen, Bernard Chang, Steve Conley and many more. Oh and Me. Here's a peek at my piece.

I'll post up the whole thing after the show either here or on twitter or deviantart.

September 15th & 16th, 2012 - Stan Lee's ComicKaze Los Angeles
Regina and the good folks at ComicKaze are having us out to the 2nd annual ComicKaze show (Now with 100% more Stan Lee!) Last year's show was awesome and now they're moving on up-- Out of the garage and into the convention center proper. Should be a blast! Come on out and see me and the studio boys (some of them at least, I think...)

September 29th & 30th, 2012 - Las Vegas Comic Expo
Jimmy Jay (of Jay Company, Amazing Arizona Comicon & Image Expo) is putting on a comic show in Las Vegas and I'll be in attendance along with my boys Josh Fialkov, Mike Costa, Kyle Higgins and a bunch of others! This is the same Weekend as Morrison Con so I imagine Vegas'll be at maximum nerd levels. Jimmy always puts on an awesome show. I'm excited.

October 11th - 14th, 2012 - New York Comic Con
First time I've set up by myself at NYCC. I'll be in Artist Alley (which, I guess is in a different room than the rest of the show-- so make sure you come find me.) I haven't been to New York in a few years. This time I'll be sure and remember that the weather in NY in October is different than it is in Los Angeles. So sadly, shorts are out of the question.
