After Emerald City Comicon 2015

Self Portrait of me making a smoochy face for a selfie. Joker makeup theme. It was fun

I had a great con this year.

I managed to snag a hotel room.  Worked my butt oft.  Bought stuff and saw tons of art.  I even managed to hang out with some friends.

I already posted a book review for one of the books I bought, Serenity Rose – 10 Awkward Years by Aaron Alexovich.  Now comes the rest of the stuff I acquired.

I purchased a collection of comics published by IDW.  Edward Scissorhands drawn by Drew Rausch, written by Kate Leth.  This new Edward Scissorhands series takes place many years after the movie.  I blew through the 5 comic books available and feel like I will be purchasing them as they come out.  They are pretty interesting.

On a visit the the neglected “6th floor” I got a gorgeous print of a lady playing a cello from Sasha Yoss.  You can see her work at www.sashayoss.com.  This is the only thing that might trump Serenity Rose for the coolest thing I got.  I also snached up a Princess Mononoke print and “the Sires of Time” comic by J.M. Dragunas. His site is www.dragunasmonster.com. I have not read the comic just yet.  The art is very detailed and it looks interesting.

The 6th floor also introduced me to Martha Hull and her work. I purchased her two books. “Death’s Daughter & the Basket of Kittens” and “Untimely Death Alphabet.”  Both were very entertaining to look at, despite the morbid topics.  Her work can be seen at www.marthahull.com.

The last things I acquired are not going to be used for their intended purposes.  One is a writers guide to the history of fictitious creatures such witches, faeries and vampires.  The other is a horror writers workbook, both by Ty Hulse.  More items I have not looked at much.  I plan on using the books for ideas.

My art has turned a bit dark lately, us artists go through phases.  Dark and creepy things interested me this year.  Last year not much was interesting ( I was broke anyway) and the year before that I got a bunch of cute stuff.

My illustration today is a self portrait based off a selfie.  I really enjoyed having green hair.  I am also going to be drawing more people in preparation for a painting/illustration that I will be starting shortly.

What will I draw tomorrow?
