I really enjoy the work I do with ReepPop, the folks behind the New York Comic Con, C2E2, PAX, and Star Wars Celebration. This year I did more than just do chalk drawings, I was able to design apparel for their Show Store and for Marvel Comics in the form of hoodies for Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America, and more.

Video: 3D Chalk Art Batman and Batcave at the Sweet Chalk Festival

Hooray, and yet another time lapse video goes live. This time it is for the 3D Batman and Batcave artwork I did at the 2014 Sweet Chalk Festival in Lockport, NY. 2 Days, about 13 hours, 30 mile-an-hour winds, rain overnight, and one finished piece of art that I like very much!

Video: Otakon 2014 Chalk Art Time Lapse

Just a few days ago I posted the photos from the Otakon chalk art. Well, now the time lapse video is approved and has gone live, so I get to share it with everyone! I was exceptionally happy with how this piece turned out. The colors are vibrant, the characters look spot on, and I love how the space background turned out.

Otakon 2014 Chalk Art Photos

I love Otakon, I really do. There, I’ve said it, and I am proud… PROUD I tell you! And what’s not to love? Endless cool costumes, a truly rocking Artist Alley that goes well into the evening and is an event unto itself, rows and rows of great stuff, and more programming than you can shake an Ocarina at.

3D Batman Chalk Art at the Sweet Chalk Festival, Lockport NY

I was asked to appear at the Sweet Chalk Festival in Lockport, NY in August. Since I am known for my superhero chalk art, AND people really like the 3D anamorphic chalk images you see all over the internet, it was requested that I combine to two. So I created an original illustration of a broken street revealing the Batcave, as well as a very surprised Batman underneath.

Marvel Films Hoody Designs for San Diego Comic Con

I was incredibly excited to be asked to design several hoodies for the Marvel Comics store at San Diego Comic Con this year. Everything was all hush-hush and TOP SECRET until the show, so I couldn’t talk about the work I had done. But now that they have been SOLD OUT, I guess it is OK to show my initial concept designs.

One of the things I love about Skottie Young‘s artwork is that it is so different from what everyone thinks successful comic book art needs to look like. It has style out the whazoo, is cartoony in a time when cartoon books aren’t popular, has amazing line work, and has a crazy simplicity where the shapes and design do all of the heavy lifting. It is beautiful stuff, and coming from a cartooning background myself, I have always admired his work.
