SDCC 2018 Coniversary Retrospective

Thank you San Diego for an amazing 20th Coniversary! I celebrated my 20th year at Comic Con with a kick-butt weekend of signing, new artwork, and fun times with my crew! Booth 4723 was poppin with visitors and I was signing it up. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and collected new books, artwork, Coniversary bags and goodies!

A small handful of limited edition Coniversary bags and some other goodies are going to release on Etsy in August. So keep your peepers peeled! You can sign up for newsletter updates on releases here.

So this happened! The whole crew and I were Kitty-tittying it up at the hotel pool post-show. Rockin those kitties on custom apparel! These bad boys were crew editions, but you can find other apparel from Liveheroes Here.

I miss beautiful San Diego already! I can hardly wait to come back for more signings, live painting demos at Holbein booth, Comic Con shenanigans and San Diego’s amazing sights next July!

New Artwork for Corey Helford Gallery Romantics Exhibition

This is my newest oil painting, Rosa! I’ve contributed a brand new original painting to Corey Helford Gallery’s New Romantics group show, curated by Caro and opening July 28th. I’m so excited! I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. My piece is loosely inspired by Oscar Wilde’s story The Nightengale and the Rose. It’s a tale about unrequited love and ultimate sacrifice… all the good stuff! If you’re in the LA Area you can view the original painting the whole exhibition starting July 28, 7-11pm and on display until Sept 1. To inquire collecting my new original painting please email sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com
