"See ya' next year, Heroes Con!"


Well, Heroes Con was great, as usual. This year saw an even more impressive array of artists and creators -- I spent too much time walking around and browsing (sometimes buying), and not quite enough time at the booth, but it was great to meet everybody.
Special mention to (in no particular order): Joe Quinones, Chris Brunner and Rico Renzi, Team Eight, Dan & Dawna Davis (of Steam Crow), Renae De Liz, Ray Dillon, Chris Grine, Dennis Hopeless, Kevin Mellon, Jim Mahfood, Dave Crosland, Alberto Ruiz, Derek Ballard, Mark Brooks, Erik Jones and the others I might have forgotten.

Special thanks to Kyle Cross and Nick Black of GORILLA RIOT for having me aboard this weekend. It was a blast (though tiring). Also to Shelton Drum and all who helped him put on the convention -- super job, as always!

For now, I've got a lot of (paying) work to catch up on and a lot of prints to mail out. Thanks to everyone who dropped by and said hi, even if you didn't buy a print. See you soon!

Hey Jared, this is Charlie, your neighbor. :P I like your work, all of your illustrations are very high energy and your color choices amplify them. I put a link to your blog on my site, I hope you don't mind. Laura and I hope you and your family are doing well. Don't let Parker out do you yet! :P

Have not posted in a while, due to my being very distracted by the fact that my life has taken a very stressful and difficult turn lately. I'm trying to keep my head above water and maintain my concept art day job stuff (which I can't share here) but my time and desire to do any other artwork has been fairly well sacked for the moment.
Hopefully, things will turn around soon.

I saw you moving out the other day when I was walking my dog. Good luck to you and I hope all is ok for you and your family.

Thanks for the love bro. The final pages were knocked out on 18x 24 smooth bristol. The last comic I did all on separate pages and scanned them and composited in Photoshop. I found that to actually be much more time consuming. Sigh I wish I had a big scanner... i just have a lot of patience. How are you doing? Work coming in steadily I assume?
