Live Art Event with Dr. Sketchy’s

A quick hello to get you ready for January. January? Who cares right, it’s Christmas!! >_^

.

Well, I know, but I’m really excited about this event and I know you will be too.  The good gals at Dr. Sketchy’s Vancouver branch have prepared a killer show for you – and me!

.

For those who don’t know what Dr. Sketchy’s is, it’s an “anti-art” movement, a worldwide phenomenon of alternative live art.  So this is how it rolls:  there will be live models on a 360 degree stage at Beaumont Stage dressed as some of my characters and I will be live drawing them! So it’s a bit like the Amanda Palmer live drawing at San Diego Comic Con, except I’ll be live drawing my own girls!!! How cool is that?

Tickets and seating are limited so if you’re interested it’s a good idea to sign up now.  You can get more information from their website or from the Facebook event page.   And get more information about Dr. Sketchy’s on their site.  It’s founded by none other than Molly Crabapple.  A lovely lady artist and friend and inspiration to so many artists.

Bye for now, sign up if you want to be part of this awesome event, and I’ll send more reminders in the New Year!

NYCC Happenings

Back from New York City Comic Con and have to say it was an intense 3 days of convention, events, meetings and more!

I was in artist alley, at table C11 and this year for the first time I sold original sketches, plus I took commission requests:

I got away from my booth a couple of times during the weekend.  Once was for my PANEL about merchandising and art entrepreneurship, held with David Scroggy from Dark Horse, and the other was on Sunday for the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra signing at Image Comics.

.

Saturday night I was at the MTV Geeks live painting, and you can see all the pics here.   This was tons of fun and I painted with Molly Crabapple, Ben Templesmith, Jim Mahfood and Dave Mack, amongst others.  Special thanks to MTV Geeks and Jah Furry!  A couple pics here on the blog:

Later that night I was at the Grant Morrison film screening and I have to say that it is truly a piece of great film making.  I know it’s been a while that the news about my collab with Grant has been in the news, and that is still happening but for anyone who doesn’t know this amazing man, you MUST watch this movie!

.

I also had a wonderful time meeting PISMO, the Brooklyn hip hop artist who’s new video just released. Pismo and I are brainstorming some fun ideas for mixing his musical skills and lyrics with some of my art. More on that soon.  In the meantime, check him out:

That was a part of my NYC adventures, and now that I’m back home I’m back at it with painting and a new comic/graphic novel project!  I’m also plotting my Halloween Kuro Pumpkin Carving.  More on that later!
