Greetings, peeps!Brizzle Con
Brizzle Con went rather well despite being a touch on the quiet side.
It was my second year there and once again it delivered by way of a really nice atmosphere, cool creative people and general comic geekery fun.
Managed to create a surprising amount of art during the weekend, learning much in the process. For the longest time, I've lacked confidence in doing art on demand thinking it's inferior and relying on references. However, sitting at our Orang Utan Comics'
table and simply drawing, has revealed that all the study these past few months has really paid off. My visual vocabulary isn't all that empty and drawing without the 'safety net' of my reference material feels much faster. Sweet little boost.
I was also commissioned officially for the first time at the weekend.
Chris B. requested character art
based on a graphic novel he's teaming up with *neurotic-elf
to produce. It was also pretty sweet getting a sneak peek at their book. It will be a long while before it goes into print, but keep an eye on *neurotic-elf
's gallery for any new pages she uploads.
I was also commissioned to do an on-the-spot portrait of someone
. I say 'someone' because google shrugged non-commitally when I tried to find their collection online. So, if you see that dude at any of the conventions, tell him to put up his website/gallery.MCM Expo
Sneaking up on us this weekend is the MCM Expo in London! If you're going, please do drift past our OUC table where I'll be doing sketches and commissions. If you are interested, bring along a few references for the characters you'd like drawn. Or, you can pick up a few of the other linearts I've doodled: such as this [link]
or that [link]
/ Whutevs, just have fun, it's a freaking comic convention!
