Comic Con!

Just a note to let everyone know that I will be at the big San Diego Comic Con next week (July 22-26). I'll be sitting at the Image booth, sharing a table with Jon Sommariva and just over from Ryan Ottley So look me up and say "Hi". Seriously if you are reading this and then you see me in San Diego and don't say hi, it will make me sad.

I plan to be doing sketches and I'll have the first 2 volumes of the Wolf-Man trades for sale, as well as 12X18 prints of some of the covers.

I will also debut my new 'sketchbook' at the con. Its not really a sketchbook, as it contains finished pieces and not sketches, so I guess it is more of an art book. But it is the same size and binding as a regular comic, not all thick and book-like. Its called Gun-Play and the theme is girls with guns. I think I have posted an image or 2 here in the past. It is 20 pages, full color, and all the illustrations were created specifically for this book. The print run is limited to 100 copies. I haven't decided on the final price yet but it will probably be around $20. If I have books left after the show I plan to offer them for sale online. I'll give more details when/if this happens. Anyway, I put the cover up here, so even if you don't want to buy the book, you can look at the cover for free

AWESOME!!!

I am totally psyched. I really want a sketch from you. Will you be there on Wednesday or should I just get to the Image booth early on Friday?

P.S. How much will a sketch cost?

Crossing my fingers there will be an art book or 2 left after SDCC for me to buy online :-) Have fun!

Man, i wish you guys would come over to the UK! :o(
Have a great con Jason and here's hoping you come back with a couple of sketchbooks to sell.

Conner- I will be there all days of the convention. I typically charge $40 for a sketch. Stop buy anytime and I'll get you on the list (sooner would be better than later just in case I get swamped with requests...).
