I doubt the Denver “Spaceport” will look quite like this YET when I arrive there next month for the Denver Comic Con— but I’m still looking forward to the trip. This will be my first professional visit to Colorado, and I’m looking forward to it tremendously! I’ll have both the brand-new TREKKER TPB, “The Train to Avalon Bay” and the TREKKER OMNIBUS on hand, as well as prints and original art. And I’ll be ready to sketch, sign and socialize. Hope to see many new faces!
Trekker will be in full-force at ECCC, March 28-30— and that calls for a brand-new, celebratory Trekker-centric convention banner! You’ll find it and me at Booth 1214, where I’ll be part of the whole Periscope Studio gang. On hand will be the Trekker Omnibus on sale, several posters, and hopes are high that some early advanced copies of the all-new “Train to Avalon Bay” TPB will be with us as well! Come by for some signing, a sketch or just some celebratin’ of the return of the adventures of Mercy St. Clair!
I had the incredible good fortune to travel the the beautiful city of Trondheim, Norway last weekend, and there I had an appearance at the excellent comic shop, “Outland”! I brought my markers with me, so some fan sketching was part of the experience. Great to meet you, Martin! And thanks for having me, Kim! You run a first-rate store. Congrats.
I’m opening up my commissions list for the new convention season, which is fast approaching. For commissions arranged for in advance, I can offer watercolor as well. I will be at some familiar shows and some new ones this year. First up is the always-excellent Emerald City Comic Con, where I will be grouped with my fellow Periscope Studio artists. You can see me to get the latest in person on Trekker news and other projects I have in the works. I’ll post a more complete list of my upcoming shows shortly. As always I’ll be happy to sign and sketch. Hope to see you soon.
The Kickstarter has reached its goal! Yet there are a few hours left for you to take advantage of the opportunity to get high-quality art books from six terrific, exciting artist from the breadth of the comics world. They all just happen to be studio mates of lucky me! One of them is Ben Dewey, who drew the above image of the rest of the “first wave” artists to celebrate the reaching of out goal a few days back. Ben’s breathtaking technical skills and his subtle, delicious humor is on display in his wildly popular Tumblr Tragedy Series . And of course, in his own art book as well. Check out the rest of us on the Kickstarter site. And get in on some last-minute pledging offers, too! A mere $5 gets you digital copies of ALL SIX ART BOOKS!! If you have more to pledge, there are lots of levels and rewards to chose from , including a deluxe hardcover collection of all six books, and a sketch card from me!
And below, another celebratory piece, this by Aaron McConnell. Aaron’s work isn’t in our first wave, but by supporting our initial books, you can help to bring the rest of the equally excellent Periscope artists’ Art Books to print as the project continues. Thanks for all the support–!

- Here are a few selected quick storyboards from a recent commercial project. The storyboard process, while similar in lots of ways to the breaking down of a comic book sequence, has its own rules and criteria. And in fact these change from one job to the next, given the specific nature of each particular project. […] Read More »
- I had the fun task of creating this over-the-top superhero-style poster for the great local beer meisters Portland Brewery and their seasonal special S.M.A.S.H. Pale Ale. These big, splashy images are always a real treat– a chance to stretch out and “get loud” with the art. And Portland Brewery was a dream to work with. […] Read More »
- I just finished this watercolor commission for a great fan. I’ve always had a liking for Supergirl, particularly after having had a run of issues a few years back. And being able to push some watercolor around is always a lot of fun. Plus, it gives me the chance to put in a word for […] Read More »
