San Diego Comic Con, Saturday



As many of you are aware, San Diego Comic Con will soon be upon us. I'll be there Saturday July 24th only, I do hope to see some of your beautiful faces as well!

You can find me at the Baby Tattoo Books Booth (THEE coolest books around), signing from 11-1pm and at the Hi Fructose Magazine Booth at 5pm along side Mr. Bob Dob. For the Hi Fructose Event, I will be releasing 5 (yes, only 5) original graphite drawings on paper - a very affordable Comic Con exclusive! Be There Babies!!

Remember, Saturday July 24th.



Continuing along on my romp through each piece from my show, the next piece that was created in the series was the biggest and baddest!! The show title piece; My Heart Shall Not Fear.



This piece measures 36"x48" - my very largest piece to date. I had to break through some tough anxiety before I could begin work on this beast, just the thought of working this big had me vexed for sooo long!








But I knew I had to kick out the jams for this show, I couldn't back down and whimper in the corner, no way. That's why this was the title piece, my heart shall not fear was dualy (howdoyouspellthat?) appropriate - in the story of the show itself, and also in my approach to work. I attacked this piece, went full force and had only one hiccup after laying down the first layer of color in the background. After many days of fear, and self loathing, I had no other choice than to pick up the brushes and keep on keepin on...and that's what I did until it was finished. It was the show title piece, the show card image advertising the show in magazines and it accompanied many interviews online in the months before the opening...



This piece means the world to me. I hung it up in my upstairs hallway when it was finally finished, and there it stayed until packing day. She was the very heart of the show, I hope her new owner will feel very loved by her.
