Happy Holidays 2008

Published by under sketchbook,tools & tech,travel

Well, I had a very satisfying Christmas visit in VT. We drove up early to avoid the predicted bad weather on Wednesday, so we had a nice leisurely time after that, with lots of good food, family, reading, and just the tiniest bit of work on the Odyssey.

One of the things I’ve been meaning to try with my tablet PC is life drawing at night, and I did that for the first time in the car on the drive up:

Comicazi show recap

Having a lunch break at the Comicazi show

Well, today was the Comicazi show I mentioned in my last post, and it was okay. The crowd was actually pretty good, though for the most part they were spending minimally. Don’t know if that was demographic or a sign of the economy, but I wasn’t the only one who had that impression. I sat next to an old convention pal, Karl, who does beautiful, meticulously crosshatched pen & ink books. I chatted with my pals from the Boston Comics Roundtable, who do a nice anthology called Inbound. And in the plentiful downtime, I did a lot of sketching (both digital and traditional – more below the cut).

Local convention appearance in Davis Square

Published by under appearances,odyssey

On December 14th (a week from Sunday) I will be making an appearance at a local comic convention in Davis Square, at the Dilboy VFW, 371 Summer St., from 9am-3pm. Come chat with me and other local comic folks, and buy some books and art. I’ll be showing some samples of the Odyssey art, too!
Speaking of which, I’m past the 20% mark on the finished pages for The Odyssey. Yay!
