Well, Chicago was a great time, and the C2E2 Comic and Entertainment Expo went VERY well for it's first year around. I had the chance to meet a ton of amazingly talented artists and writers and got to hang out with a few of them. I bought some original GL art from Patrick Gleason, and got to meet Mike Richardson from Dark Horse. I also had a fun time hanging out with Arie Kaplan (writer for DC, Mad), Will Sliney (artist for Farscape) and Declan Shalvey (artist for 28 Days later). Cheers guys! IDW aslo threw a bad-ass party at Challenger's comics (downtown Chicago), so thanks to Jimmy, Chris Ryall, Scott Tipton, Andy Schmidt, and everyone else that was hangin out.
I plan on returning to Chicago next year for another awsome show.
Here's a recent Ghostbusters piece that was done as a commission, and then made into prints for C2E2. I'll have prints of this available in San Diego this July as well. The commision for this came from friends of Patrick Creel ( Real Tampa Bay Ghostbusters), as an idea for a surprise birthday present for him. Once I heard it was for that, I was on board, and it ended up being a lot of fun. Patrick is the reference model for Egon on my Ghostbusters covers for IDW. He and his awsome friends helped me out big time with the GB: Convolution (4th of July) one-shot. It hits stores in June. Check it out!
Also, anyone from Tampa Bay Florida should recognize the buildings that Egon is standing over.....ha!
This is a Spider-man piece that I did as a commission too. Prints are also available for this. It was originally a part of a "Spider-man and His Amazing Friends" commission for my new friend Mikeal, but I thought Spidey worked well by himself too. I adjusted it and Gabe colored it.
