Comics taught me a lot. I remember a time when it was more than just grimacing faces, but people used to put thought into powers, origins, etc. And the first time I read a Hulk comic where he fought the U-Foes, I didn't connect the name of the guy with the psychokinetic abilities to his powers immediately. It was only sometime later that that light went off and I snapped my fingers, "Oh, VECTOR! Now I get it." Look him up.
Where am I going with this? Nowhere really. He just popped into mind because I was sitting here and thinking about the direction I want to go in. I recently went through a pretty emotional experience, and didn't think I would be able to move forward. But with the help of some good friends and a lot of thought, I realized that I have no choice BUT to move forward. The time has come for me to step things up a notch in ALL matters, and I'm more determined than ever to bring you the best I can.
And the Mega Con is one more brick in this great cathedral.  As I mentioned last blog, I'll be heading down to sunny Florida this weekend for the show.
Unfortunately I have no more space for pre-commissions.

Now, I know I promised I was going to make it up to you last Friday with some extras plus a special announcement, but I'm going to have to hold off on the announcement. For now, enjoy the new art.

MegaCon Feb17-19

That's right peeps, I'll be heading down to sunny Florida in a few short weeks for the magnificent MegaCon.

I'll be in Artist Alley(I'll try to get an exact location for you) and as always, I'm accepting pre-commissions for pickup only. Sketches either be medium(8x10)-$45 or large(11x17)-$75 with $15 for each additional character. The sweet thing about the pre-orders is I'll be able to put a little extra on it so you get a little more bang for your buck.
To all my Flo-ridians I'll see you there.

Now I know I missed a couple blogs  and I only have 1 piece for you today, but I'll make it up to you next Friday with some extras plus a special announcement.
