Heroes Recap

Kitty Pryde. 2013. Watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

A huge thanks goes out to Heroes Con for putting on such a great show. It was only my second time there, but they make you feel like family. Thanks also to everyone who stopped by my table. I was sorta hiding in plain sight all weekend without my banner stand or mirror contraption. I'll do better next time.

I met a terrifying swath of talented artists at the con — the floor was dominated by Artists Alley and the schedule was chock full of engaging programming. I was in billy club distance of Lee Weeks, Joe Quinones, Maris Wicks, Bettie and Mitch Breitweiser, and Ryan Browne. It all made for a great weekend.

But as if that wasn't enough, I came away with this sweet commission by David Petersen (of Mouse Guard fame) for my ever-growing Ninja Turtle collection (here's Shredder). We had met at Thought Bubble last year when we sat next to each other and agreed to a trade. You can see my contribution to his Harry Potter collection below. Have a great weekend!

  1. Great meeting you at HeroesCon last week!

    Have you done any Ninja Turtles artwork?

    1. Not professionally, but I'd love to at some point. Of all my obsessions, TMNT was really what got me started (and lasted the longest).

  2. I fell in love with your rendition of Kitty!
    You are one hell of an artist sir, much respect!
