Just a little sketch to tide you over until I post some Comic Con photos!

Here's another illustration for the presentation I did a few weeks back. The big dog (played by Bijou, my notoriously e-VIL Border Collie mix) represents the gigantic communications company that is bigger than everybody else and is loved by all, whereas the small dogs represent the competition that does nothing for you except maybe pee on your rug.

Get Booked!

I'm heading to San Diego in a few weeks for Comic-Con International, for what has to be the biggest geekfest in the world. I want to take a portable portfolio with me to show, just in case, ya know, but don't want to carry a laptop or my tablet which could get lost, broken, or stolen. So I went through Blurb.com and had this book made.

It's 82 pages, hardcover, with a dust jacket. Fifty bucks delivered! And I have to say, it turned out better than I could imagine. The colors are bright and true to the look of the files on my monitor. Even art that I thought was rather low in resolution looks sharp. If you ever had the idea to put together a book of art or photos this is the stuff. You can order various sizes in paperback or hardcover and even put them up for sale in the Blurb store. Other websites offer the same sort of service including Apple with their iBooks.

I'm also going to get some postcards made too. I just finished the illustration tonight, featuring Ellie meeting denizens of another world.

More from ye olde booke of Sketchy

A few weeks back Cafe 1923 in Hamtramck held the opening for the first Dr. Sketchy art show. And of course we had a session of drawing as well. Everyone's favorite model, Muana, posed for us in all her Geisha finery. We even got to go draw outside - a Dr. Sketchy first. The show will be hanging until July 12.

A few of my sketches hang along with Azucena's and others'.
