Countdown to New York


The New York Comic Con is coming up at the end of this week so my thoughts and attention have turned into preparation for that event. There's not really a heck of a lot to do- I went through the portfolio that I always bring to shows this morning, and tried to root out the art and pages that didn't sell last year and replace it with some newer material. And as always, I'll be there to do Turtle sketches such as the one above- which was done last week to kinda help me get a jump on things.
That's it really- for the folks that are able to attend, I hope you'll stop by the Mirage tables in Artist Alley and say hi.

  1. Jim,
    Are you going to be at Heroes Con this year again?

  3. I really like the darker quality to the inking on this. It gives the Leo (or any of the turtle) that brooding look that was in the earlier comics.

  4. David--
    Last year Heroes Con was kind of a bust for me, at least in the sense that I didn't sell much stuff. Heh, I was so slow that I actually got 2 pages of Paleo pencilled. (Can't believe that I brought work with me). So, while Dooney had a great show and is planning to attend again this year, I'm afraid that I'm leaning towards no.

  5. Oh well, I was looking forward to meeting you again and hopefully getting pages off of you. Last year I got a the print of the Tales Treasury from you. Maybe another con or year.

    Also, I love the Leo. I don't remember seeing that texture on the front shell before. Cool!
