Megacon 2011!

Me and Alex Ross, Megacon 1999.
Please note size of family cell phone.

I am heading down to Megacon tomorrow, my "home con" as I have come to affectionately call it, since it was the very first large convention that I ever attended, not to mention the very place that began my career. That's where I met Jim Krueger, who would end up commissioning my first professional work, and subsequently promoting that work to usher me into Marvel.

It's been a long time since then and I'm honored to be on the other side of the table this weekend. Below is all the information for my panel schedule, location, and commissions policy.

I'll be at Booth 518 in the Special Guest area for the duration of the con, with the following exceptions:

Saturday, 2:50pm-3:40pm, Room 222A
Marvel Spotlight with Perkins, Peterson, Pham and Mann

Sunday, 2:50pm-3:40pm, Room 222A
The Do’s and Don’ts of Comics with DeCastro, Scott, Tieri and Bellman

I will be sketching all weekend, watercolor head sketches, limited availability, first come, first served. For more information, please see my commissions policy.

And finally, I think I'm going to take a blog break. I'm heading down to Florida for a month and I really need to concentrate on getting some work done. You may hear from me from time to time, but this is me signing off for now. As always, thanks for reading.


  1. I've always been so impressed with your ability to handle a full work schedule and post as regularly to your blog as you do! See you next month!

  2. Two GREAT painters.
    That pic is a masterpiece of itself!

  3. I was disappointed that we didn't get in this show, now I'm super sad knowing that you were there!

  4. Thanks, guys!

    Leia, don't be sad! I have a strange feeling that this won't be the last comic convention that I do.

  5. T-shirts tucked into pants, teh sex!
    Must be the 90's.

  6. Better yet, it was an airbrushed t-shirt based on Ross's cover to Kingdom Come #4. Unfortunately, the design is only on the back. But Ross approved.
