Bounding into Baltimore Comic-Con from October 18-20

Art News Comments Off on Bounding into Baltimore Comic-Con from October 18-20

I’m doing my last convention of the year appearing at the Baltimore Comic-Con from October 18-20. It’s been a few years since I was able to attend as my schedule kept me from doing shows at all, but this year I finally get to come back to one of the best comic conventions for comic fans. For more information on the convention please check out https://baltimorecomiccon.com/ . I’ll have a few prints for sale and will be available to sign books the entire show.

I’m doing a limited number of pre-show commissions before the convention again as my schedule has opened up after just finishing my latest issue. This is the best option if you want artwork from me, as my table time is limited by signing and talking to fans. If you have a physical sketchbook or a artist jam piece you want me to add art into come see me as soon as you can during the show to see if I have availability, but those pieces are only done if my schedule allows and I can’t make any guarantees.

The price is $300 for a watercolor bust/torso of a single character of your choice done on 9″ x 12″ Strathmore Archival paper with Schmincke Horadam Watercolors. These have been very popular and I’ve posted my most recent examples at my website and in this post.  I will do any character from any media; I’ve done movie and TV characters and characters out of literature and history, not just comic book characters.

I accept cash or credit cards at the show, or I prefer paypal being arranged before the show. I will contact you with any questions I might have and to confirm everything via email.

(Update 10/15/19 – The Baltimore list is now closed.)

I’ll be at the Charlotte Heroes Con from June 14-16

Hi everyone, I’ll be appearing at the Heroes Convention in Charlotte, NC from June 14-16. This is a show that I have enjoyed for many years, and I’m glad to be able to attend again. You can find out more information about the show at their website at https://www.heroesonline.com/heroescon/.

Dallas Comic Show is April 6-7, 2019

Art News Comments Off on Dallas Comic Show is April 6-7, 2019

So, 2018 has come and gone and I was unable to attend any convention that year due to an aggressive work schedule. That will change this year!

The first show I am able to attend this year is the Dallas Comic Show at the Richardson Civic Center from April 6-7, 2019. You can find out more information at http://www.dallascomicshow.com/.

I’ll be there both days doing my usual thing of signing books, selling prints, and doing commissions as time allows. I am doing a small number of commissions before the show as my schedule has opened up a little. This is the best option if you want artwork from me as typically trying to get things done at the show is very iffy for me as I tend to be busy.

Baltimore Comic-Con Commissions for September 22-24

Site News Comments Off on Baltimore Comic-Con Commissions for September 22-24

The last official con for me for the year is coming up in Baltimore from September 22-24, 2017

I’ll be at all 3 days of the show, signing your books, selling merchandise and doing con commissions as time allows. I’ve also opened up my pre-show commission list for Baltimore. If you think you will want a piece from me at that show, this is a great option to guarantee that I’ll be able to do it for you to pickup at the show. On the actual show days, my time is very limited and I usually can’t get to everyone that makes a request for art during the event. Additionally, the work I do before the convention is often better quality as I’m doing it comfortably at home in my studio.

The price is $240 for a watercolor bust (head and torso) of the character of your choice done on 9″ x 12″ Strathmore Archival paper with Schmincke Horadam Watercolors. These have been very popular and I’ve posted some examples just below this paragraph.  I will do any character from any media; I’ve done movie and TV characters and characters out of literature and history, not just comic book characters.

I will be accepting payment via Paypal with pickup available from the beginning of the show and through all the days of the show.

If you’d like to reserve a watercolor commission for the Baltimore Comic-Con, please use the form at the bottom of this post, or there is a convenient button link to the form at the top of the sidebar to the right under “2017 Convention Commissions”. If you would like more than one commission please submit the form multiple times.

Wonder Woman (and a little extra Batman)

Art News, Uncategorized Comments Off on Wonder Woman (and a little extra Batman)

I’ve seen the movie twice already and love it. Wonder Woman’s always been one of my favorite DC Comics characters as I loved mythology as a kid and really relished George Perez’s run on the book. He really added a lot to her story in terms of origins and personality while putting her in a unique roll in the greater DC universe.

As the summer convention season is in full swing, I decided to celebrate my now working with DC by doing a series of prints of their iconic characters, and the first two are ready with Wonder Woman and Batman! If you’d like to own these pieces as high quality 18″ x 24″ lithographs, come see me at a convention I’m attending, like the Heroes or Denver Comic-Cons I’ll be attending later this month.

I’ll be at Motor City Comic-Con this weekend May 19-21!

Art News Comments Off on I’ll be at Motor City Comic-Con this weekend May 19-21!

I’m excited and ready to attend the big Motor City Comic-Con, happening this weekend from May 19-21 at the Suburban Collection Showplace. You can find all the show information at http://motorcitycomiccon.com and see all the guests and celebrities attending. I ended up doing a cool Ron Perlman print for the convention that they are using as a VIP item, and I’ll have brand new stuff at my table for you all to look at.

I’ll be at Booth C21 sitting next to my friend and fellow comic artist Frank Cho. We’ll have a really cool couple of things we’ve worked on together in limited quantities at the show, shown for the first time anywhere, so check it out! Also, I will be closing my pre-show commission list for Motor City at midnight tonight, while keeping lists for other upcoming shows open for now. You can sign up for my pre-show watercolors at http://www.brandonpeterson.com/blog/?page_id=3994
