Confetti at Comic Con!

What a whirlwind month it has been! This week is the infamous SDCC, and for the first time I will have a table in the Small Press area (SP O-15), so I am very excited for the show. Not only that, but for the very first time I will be selling my own little art book! Confetti, a 68-page collection of various works, will be making its debut tomorrow in San Diego! I will also have the usual haul of prints, bookmarks, some originals and special edition books (with bookplates) on hand so please stop by if you are in the neighborhood! And for everyone who cannot make it to Comic Con, I will be selling the book online shortly after I return from the show. Have a wonderful week, and I hope to see you in San Diego!

Harry Potter Tribute Show: Expecto Patronum

The second of my two Potter pieces - Harry defending Ron and Hermione from Dementors with the use of his Patronus charm. His stag patronus is just so cool, I couldn't help myself.

Both of my Harry Potter pieces (as well as many others) will be on display starting this Saturday, July 9th, at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. The opening reception is going to be awesome, so be sure to stop by if you can!

Also, my Introduction to the Owlry piece is part of an online auction for the Harry Potter tribute show. You can view and bid on 11 of the pieces in the show right here. Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope to see you at the show!

Harry Potter Tribute Show: Introduction to the Owlry

I am definitely a Potter fan. When the nice folks at Gallery Nucleus asked me if I would be interested in participating in a Harry Potter Tribute Show that would take place one week before the final film opened, I must confess that I had to suppress a squeal of joy. It was really difficult for me to choose what to illustrate, but in the end there were two moments that I decided to try to capture.

This first piece is my take on little Harry introducing his Snowy Owl, Hedwig, to the Owlry at Hogwarts. I thought it would be fun to illustrate these two unlikely friends, as well as all of the different owl personalities that shuttle messages to and from Hogwarts.

The Harry Potter Tribute Show opens this Saturday, July 9th at 7pm at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA. You can see all of the crazy show details right here!

I have one more Potter piece that I will post before the show. Have a great week, and I hope to see you on Saturday!
