Back from Baltimore, Talk Like a Pirate Day and the cons of Oct.

Just drove back from Baltimore this morning.  10 hours of staying awake while listening to Robert Jordan's Knife of Dreams on audio book.  I'm glad that one started picking up, the last couple of books seemed to drag a bit.  So, to all those who might be looking here for the first time and think "Oh, good he must post regularly because I just saw him at the Baltimore Comicon" I'm afraid you will be sorely disappointed.  But at least for now here's some new stuff.  First I'll start off with a couple of birthday presents.  July was the month of creation for both David Petersen and my sister Julie, and here's what I gave them. 


 The witches were the second great race that controlled the waters and the lands they possess in the world of the Omerta Seas.  This is the witch Circ Aileg, the words at the bottom -Majiq Edoui Seccr- I concocted. They might actually translate to something, but I am completely ignorant of it.  For me it means "magic hides within".  I've been developing a lot of back story for the world that Cursed Pirate Girl takes place in.  Hopefully some day you will be able to see it.  :) 

(btw I got a new keyboard so now my parenthesis keys work!)








This is a piece for David's Harry Potter Gallery.  It's a quite impressive gallery, you can check out the rest of the gallery here. 



So I tried something different with my con sketch list for the Baltimore show and I think I like it a lot.  I took a lot of pre show requests the week before and then tried getting them done before the show.  It worked quite well.  I was able to get a lot more done than I usually do.  I took scans of some of them.




  

I've still got a couple to complete and put up.  Hopefully I will be able to do that sooner than later, but you know me...

Here are a couple of pieces left from San Diego, you might have seen them on Instagram. 





And to finish off the art, here's a piece I did for my friends Anthony and Meagan for their wedding.

 So, this upcoming Saturday, Sat the 15th is Talk like a Pirate Day.  I have been asked to talk about my comic at my local library here in Plymouth.  here's a link to their website where you can see the details.  The only problem with this is that I do not the hardcover edition yet.  But I will try to make it fun regardless. 






 The next comic show I'll be at will be the New York Comicon, I am not on their list online but fret not, I will be there in artist alley.  Now speaking of the hardcover edition of CPG vol. 1, I have been told that Archaia expects the books to be in stores in early November.  They also have said that they will be getting a shipment in so that there will be books available for the New York show.  I will try to get a hold of someone to confirm this.  So cross your fingers everyone, we could be a month away from seeing this thing! WOOOO!  I will be opening the sketch list for that show starting Oct. 7th.  After that you can find me at the Detroit Fanfare show the 26th through the 28th of Oct.  This year they are holding the show in back in Dearborn.  And that's a lot closer (to me) than last year's Cobo show.  Here's the link to their site.

  3. I'm glad you clarified that you'll be at NYCC, I'd love to get my CPG trade signed. And you say you might have the HC? Perhaps my paperback will end up as somebody's Christmas gift to make room on my shelf for the hardcover. :) I am curious, how much do you charge for commissioned pieces? I'm not usually a big convention sketch person, but your work is clearly in a different tier. I look forward to seeing you at the con!
