An interesting SDCC this year. Sales and traffic of people interested in comic art seemed to be way down this year. In fact, this is the first year where I did not get at least 20 requests for show commissions. I didn’t even get 15. Is San Diego being overrun with toy flippers and movie fans, leaving the comic and art fans unable to get a ticket? Many artist’s are starting to think so. Time will tell.
I did do some good commissions this year, though. I only took pictures of 3, however. There is a nice Silver Surfer from Planet Hulk floating around out there.
Here are the 3 I did take pictures of. I normally don’t do color at shows because it takes too long. However, this show I did unexpectedly have the time. Olivia Tien, a long time collector of my art who actually helped out in the booth this year, got two color pieces for her Disney sketchbook. These are a combination of gray markers and colored pencils.
Here is the other sketchbook I worked in and actually remembered to take a photo of. This would be the New Thor. I only used markers on this one.
That’s all I have for this trip. More Power Cubed next time!
