Hi Everyone, I flew back early this morning from San Diego, the week long media spectacular that is unique among the comicons due to sheer volume. Volume of people, volume of media attention, volume of material to look at and buy, volume of the loud trailers in Hall H. You get the idea.
I’m back to work drawing my pages for Marvel, but here are a few selected fun bits that I did at the show. My next bug show is the Baltimore Comic-Con in September, and as that draws near I will be posting more information. To all of you who I saw in San Diego, thanks for making it a great show and I hope you had as good a time as I did!
I’m posting one of my commissions for San Diego. It’s a scene from the best Star Trek movie: Star Trek II – The Wrath of Khan. If you’re interested in a watercolor, you can find all the info at http://www.brandonpeterson.com/blog/?p=3887
I’m also posting the Mouse Guard piece as it was pretty late when I posted it and many probably didn’t see it.
After San Diego, my next big convention is the Baltimore Comic-Con from September 25-27. You can find out all about that show at http://baltimorecomiccon.com/
There’s also a theme book created for the show based on David Petersen’s Mouse Guard. (http://www.mouseguard.net/) I along with many attending artists are contributing pieces. I’m posting my piece as it actually came out better than I had hoped!
I’ll be giving a demonstration of some of my techniques at the Wacom booth (Booth 5336) during San Diego on Thursday, July 16th from 2-3 PM. I’ll be using the impressive power of the Wacom Cintiq to show some digital inking methods I’ve developed and used over the years in my work, so come by and see me make a fool of myself on all the newest equipment! I’ve also made a map showing where I will be at the con and at that Wacom demonstration. I’m in Artist Alley, booth HH07, at the same place I’ve been the last few years.
San Diego Comic-Con International is only 1 week away and I will be attending all days of the show from July 8th-12th sitting at booth HH07 in the Artist Alley. I have a ton of goodies debuting at the show, including the continuation of my classic “Pinup” series, as well as a super rare limited edition of 100 hand silk-screened print measuring 18×24 inches that is gallery quality. Stop by my booth to get your hands on these limited beauties!
I also am opening up my pre-show commission list for San Diego. If you think you want a sketch from me at the show, this is your best option by far as I will probably be too busy to do much work at the Comic-Con.
The prices are $250 for a watercolor bust (head and torso) of the character of your choice done on 9×12 Arches Archival Watercolor paper with Schmincke Horadam Watercolors. These have been very popular and if you go to my blog at http://www.brandonpeterson.com/blog/ you can see dozens of recent examples that I have posted. I can also do the painting on a recent blank Marvel or DC cover variant for an additional $10. I can find most blank variants at the local comics store, just specify what you’re interested and I’ll see if I can get it.
I will be accepting payment via Paypal with pickup available all days of the show. So if you are interested please email brandonpetersonsketches (at) gmail.com as soon as possible!
The last of the pinup series, Poison Ivy. I’ll have pictures of San Diego stuff up soon!
Another piece from the Pinup style set, more to come soon as San Diego looms!
Another piece in the classic pinup style I started playing with last year. More of these to show as San Diego draws nearer!
The completed piece! It’s a limited color silkscreen paper print that I did with a really gritty, unrefined style and it looks great. Look for all sorts of other fun announcements with San Diego just 3 weeks away!
A little preview of a screen print piece I am working on. I’m playing with a real painterly approach and having a blast. San Diego Comic-con is coming up soon, I’ll be making announcements as the show grows nearer!
