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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Now this was a fun job. I was asked to create a chalk mural at Anime Central 2014 for VIZ Media to promote the North American DVD release of Blood Lad. The art style is unique, and the image I was asked to recreate was very different from most chalk art murals I make. There were a lot of flat colors, which for anyone who has worked in chalk knows, is NOT easy to pull off. In the end, after 25 hours of sketching and chalk work, I was very pleased with the result.
