FREE Coloring Page

Another project I am working on with Dream Scroll Publishing, is a coloring book from a collection of past character doodles I found in some of my old sketchbooks. It's looking to be highly eclectic and random at best. A literal mind-dump that I hope will translate well for coloring. Within the next few weeks, I'll be cleaning up sketches and working on page design, but in the meantime you can get your crayons, markers, pens, whatever and download this free page (by clicking on it) and get your color on! I'll keep posting free pages for download as they are completed, so subscribe to get updated as soon as they are available. 

Weekend Art Drop

Getting inspiration from @Jake Parker and his #artdrop movement, I was inclined to go out this past weekend and place a random print for someone to find. I think artists sharing their art, creativity or ideas with each other or the world without looking for something in return is a great way to engage and hopefully inspire.

It was really fun scouting for a location and getting my butt up from the drawing tablet, going outside to get some fresh air and spending time with my family. Thanks Jake! 

Godhead Guide Update:

I will be continually moving over content from a previous blog related to the Godhead Visual Guide for better streamlining and readability on all things Godhead Universe. While going over the content I will also update and correct past entries and re-blog as each one is finished. This will be an ongoing process as storylines begin to change and others emerge. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome!

Dover Comic-Con Fun

Well, another convention over (marking my second one to date this year) and my family and I had a great time at Dover Comic-Con! This was our first year there and I have to admit that I am a bit upset we have to wait for another full year to enjoy it again. It is an outdoor event and the weather was hot, (although I heard it was hotter last year) but that didn't stop us from meeting and enjoying some wonderful comic fans, cosplayers, fellow artists, and vendors. Convention set up was pretty early, around 6:30-7 am, but we didn't start setting up until about 8 am and still had plenty of time before the 10 am opening. Responses to my artwork were positive and I think it helped being placed between two non-competing vendors. Moving forward, I think I will try to request this type of placement in the future.

My daughter had notepads printed from a character she created called Chunky Unicorn which received positive responses and sold quite well. I did pay extra to have electricity, thinking I would be able to do some digital commissions and take more professional cosplay pics, but I ended up being too busy to set up my camera. My tablet also decided not to work (may have been the heat, but who knows).

Again, I have to give big props to my beautiful wife and daughter who helped out ALL day, from setup, manning the booth so I could catch a bite to eat and check out other artists and exhibitors. I like to show my support and buy a piece or two from other artists or vendors and this time found a nice art print of X-men's Storm at Art by A Tess's booth.

The Dover Library is doing a phenomenal job in my opinion (this is only the fourth year of the convention) already attracting thousands of people each year. Not sure how many people were in attendance this year yet, but there were very nice crowds throughout the day. It seemed to be very well organized and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back next year!

P.A.R.T.S Concept Cover Art

After finishing the rough outline for the P.A.R.T.S comic book I'm currently working on, my main characters are pretty much fleshed out and I wanted to start on character designs to get a better idea of how they will look. The characters consist of Niobe "Z" Washington, the main protagonist, her father Jehshi and Old Man Oomzay. I may experiment with "Z" and the robot after I work through more full-body designs, but I'm happy with the results so far. #partscomic #dr3art #conceptcoverart #graphicnovel #characterdesign
