Emerald City Comic Con

Ok, I'm packing up for my first ever trip to Seattle and the Emerald City Comic Con this weekend. I'll be at table E-20, selling prints, doing sketches and trying to meet as many people as possible. This is the first con I've done on the west coast in a while, so I'm pretty excited.

And on that note, here's a quick painting of Daredevil I did as a pre-show order. It's done in goauche and ink on board.

More Editorial!

And here's a few more recent illustrations I did for Boston Magazine. They were all designed to accommodate a masthead in the top left and usually a few paragraphs of copy inside the art.

With all of these, I tried to vary the styles to fit the subject matter. They were all painted digitally, and I had a lot of fun making custom brushes and experimenting with different approaches. For those who are curious, most of my digital work is painted using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro. I probably use that for 80% of my digital process.
