Heroescon 2017

Heroescon 2017

Just recently returned from Heroescon in Charlotte, NC. Last year, HC 2016 was my first time ever tabling in an Artist Alley. I've learned a lot since then, but probably the most important thing that I've learned about the Artist Alley is how to measure your expectations.

Emmy Certificate

I am extremely humbled to announce that I have received an Emmy certificate for my contribution to season 7 of Archer. Last year, Archer received an Emmy for 'Outstanding Animated Series.' Every member of the production team has been honored with these certificates. 

This was an amazing opportunity for me. The folks at Floyd County Productions taught me so much about the industry. I'll never forget the exeprience!

Featured in ImagineFX's FXpose' gallery section

Hey guys!

I am extremely excited to share with you that I have been featured in the February 2017 issue of ImagineFX. I submitted back in June and they contacted me a few weeks ago to let me know that I would be in the issue. It is on sale on their website as of December 30th, 2016. And should be on shelves here in the U.S. by late January. 

I can't even express my excitement for this! The small feature is on the Arthurian series and my mentor ship with Peter Mohrbacher. 2017 is already off to an awesome start! 

I will see you guys at MAGfest next week where I will have some new prints and some new stickers!

Check out some screenshots from the article below:

 

AWA 2016 and Beyond

AWA 2016 and Beyond

I'll be attending AWA at the end of the month. (Sep 29 - 0ct 2) and I will have several new prints with me. I'll be near the entrance to the artist alley at table 902. Come say hello! 

Additionally, I started a new Patreon campaign. I am raising money monthly to fund more prints and a coloring book. All patrons will receive a copy of the book before it goes up for sale here on the website.

First Convention

First Convention

This is a little over due but better late than never:

So in June I had my first experience as a convention artist. And I loved it. 

But it definitely wasn't easy. Less than two weeks to go, I happened to luck into a spot at Heroes Con in Charlotte. A friend of mine wasn't able to make it to her booth, so she offered it to me. Hungry for the opportunity to be in the artist alley, I PayPal'd her some money and scrambled to put prints and the necessary gear together. Spent some money, but I was too excited to care. Prints, business cards, and banner assembled. And all arrived by the time the show came around.

Mentor-ship with Peter Mohrbacher

Mentor-ship with Peter Mohrbacher

 I turned 27 this year. Upon doing so I realized that I had come to a wall in my budding "career" as an artist. While I know I'm still young, I felt like I had wasted some good years without focus. I thought, "Why don't I work on board games, card art, and book covers like I always told myself I'd be doing by now?" I felt like, though I've had a few wins, I wasn't proud of my work and I lacked the discipline to put my ideas in motion without losing motivation or being disappointed with the outcome. Last November I was laid off from what could be considered a cushy dream job due to circumstances well beyond the control of a lowly illustrator that had been with the studio for 3 months.
