Rockets and Sparklers


Just returned from a successful weekend at the Mid-Ohio Con. I could've stood to sell a few more books (not that I did badly) but I did very well with commissions. I was as busy as ever and had to turn down some requests--even after doing several in advance of the show.

Here are two of the commissions I did recently--one in advance and one at the show. The Rocketeer was pre-ordered and I definitely took my time with this one. This drawing was to be the first page in a Rocketeer sketchbook and I wanted to do my best to get the book off to a good start. No pressure, right? The other drawing is Jenny Sparks, from the Authority, of course. Not, as some may have conjectured, Tara Chace with a nasty case of static electricity.

As always, if you had a sketch done at the show and you have the ability to scan your drawing and send it my way, I would much appreciate it!
