Comic-Con '07 Sketches

Comic-Con was insane, crowded, scary, intimidating, and inspiring.

Little fish in a big pond syndrome hit me like a smack between the eyes. The amount of talent and tenacity on display was amazing! I spent most of my time hanging out in the small/independent press and artist alley sections of the main hall. As well as attending a few workshops on pitching ideas, and how to work for DC (I mustn't have been paying enough attention... oops). I got some great comics, and met some great people, but I found I had the best time when I succumbed to the inspiration, picked myself a spot of carpet in an out-of-the-way place, and drew, drew, DREW.

These are some of my favourite quick sketches. Characters, people walking by, etc. Comic-Con really made me sit up and realise that my year of pumping out quantity over quality meant I really needed to look at the way I did things.

It's a start...

And this here is a headshot of Nico from Runaways I got from current series artist, Michael Ryan. His originals blew me away, and he was giving out headshot sketches for FREE. Insane man.
