Here are a couple more commissions I did at Horrorhound weekend in Indy. So much fun to do these. Its great when people can walk away smiling with something you have done for them. I met one of my favorite artist, Daniel Horne this weekend too. He could not have been nicer or more gracious with his time. I hope to keep in contact with him and get some helpful feedback on my paintings. I also made a friend with Sal Lizard. A comedian who dresses as a zombie claus. I never got to see him in the full outfit but we had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. Special effect artist and horrorhost too. Other comicers as well. Hope all who made it out had a good time and those who didn't get to, I hope to see you guys soon.

More HORRORHOUND weekend.

I tried to post from the convention but it seems they aren't getting through so here it goes again. Just finished vending at my first convention. The weekend was great and I met a lot of great people. Had one flub where the doors closed before I could get a last minute commission to the buyer. I took it out with me to see if I could find them in the halls and then forgot to bring it with me the next day. They were really understanding about it and I'll ship that out tonight. Hope everyone else had as much fun as I did and I have to say that Sunday night was the best night. Just the ones who wanted to celebrate a good weekend stayed behind and had a few laughs so the bar wasn't insanely crowded and people were just wanting to have fun. Here are some commissioned charicatures I did. I have more to show and unfortunately I didn't get photos of all of them. Chalk it up to inexperience.

I'm nervous because this weekend I'll be selling my wares at Horrorhound weekend. First convention ever so the overhead is pretty high. Getting everything in place and stuff has taken way more time then I figured it would. Anywho here's some of the things I'll have. Hope to see you there.

Ripley Sketch

I need more pin ups for Horrorhound and I think next up will be Ripley from Alien. I drew up this sketch and immediately saw influence from Rockin' Jelly Bean, who I love. This was way fast to draw and way fun. I especially liked the egg. I showed some friends and got some flack for her hair but I recalled a chick-fro in the second one and after blocking some images although not as large as the one I drew I'm sure I was right. Also some similarities to the pinup I just drew. Well, big ta-tas and a rifle. But how can you go wrong with that? This is just a Sharpie sketch and I'll do a more finished one in Prismacolors hopefully tonight. I posted this for comments on weather I should persue this style and only got two responses. One of them again commenting on her hair. I'll bug some more people and see what kind of response I get. Maybe include an alien in the background for the actual Horrorhound print since that always seems to be a big draw. If I don't end up doing this style I've got plenty more sketches to draw another Ripley. Either way something will end up in the sketchbook I'll have out at Horrorhound.

Ghostbuster Girl.

I'm not kidding when I say I wish I could be a ghostbuster. I have a bit of an obsession. I can first remember being a ghostbuster for halloween in 2nd grade and I've been one four other times including last year. While getting ready for Horrorhound a ghostbuster pin up was a given. After pages and pages of sketching I chose this pose that shows off the glider but unfortunately not the pack. This isn't the finished project yet but I wanted to show this off. I had a few sketches with the pack but the overall look wasn't as fun. I even had a few that shhowed her as a workin' stiff. I may persue those more later, but for now I need to focus on finishing more stuff to sell as prints at Horrorhound.
