Haven't been around for a few days. The reason being is I was up in tha LBC attending the Wizard convention. Man, whatta weekend! From the barroom antics of a fellow comic pro, to the hotel room shenanigans, it was truly a weekend to savor, lol. I attended last year and had a blast, and this year's show was no different. I was shacked up with fellow artist Mark Brooks for the entirety of the show. We had what could only be described as "Alé and Mark's big 'fruity' weekend," heh. Also got to kick it with fellow pros Karl Kerschl, and Dave McCaig. Both of whom are extremely talented and super cool...yo! Once again the DC booth provided great shelter, and even though Marvel had an actual booth, DC was still the place to be!
The night before the show, Mark and I got a little boozy, and a little singy, and did up the above piece. The idea was to raffle it off during the show. A lucky young lady known as Maria was the big winner having only had to shell out 10 bucks for her tickets...(napolean says) luckyyyy....Congrats to her though, the piece actually came out pretty nice considering I could barely hold my head up while drawing my Wolverine, heh.
I'll post some of the commisssions I did as I get the scans sent to me. All in all a great time, and I can't wait for Comic-Con!
Pics of me annoying both Karl Kerschl, and Greg Rucka, the new creative team on Superman Adventures, make sure to check for it...yo!
