Granite State Comicon was a great show.
The gang at Double Midnight Comics and Collectibles put together a fine event. It had an awesome turn-out with plenty of comics fans and many attendees sporting the latest in superhero costumery.
I set up with only minutes to spare and displayed some of my paintings. It was not long before I received my first sketch commission–a dragon designed by Todd Lockwood for Magic: The Gathering. I don’t have a scan of the piece, but I signed it “After Todd Lockwood”—a tip of the hat to the master. :)
Next, a pair of costumed friends arrived with requests for me to capture their likenesses in character. I took some cell phone snaps and went to work.
Here is one Mr Mossey wearing his rendition of the Captain America costume.
He is holding a cupcake bearing Cap’s shield emblem. Ahhh—the sweet taste of freedom…( that bird in the background is an eagle bearing a basket filled with similar baked goodies—it was cropped in the scan).
And-yes, he is wearing his Captain America briefs OVER his jeans.
And my third and final commission for the day was for none other than Mr Le.
He appears as a hopeful storm trooper some time after the destruction of his beloved home…
Many thanks to both gentlemen for sending me the scans they did of their drawings after the show!
I am pleased to be able to share them on my blog today!
