San Diego Comic Con 2007 TABLE F5!


As I've mentioned before, I'll be at the San Diego Comic Con again this year!
I'll be shaing TABLE F5 with my good friend and all around great guy, Bob Rissetto!
Also joining me will be my mani squeeze, so everything is bound to go a hell of a lot smoother the second time around! Everything is pretty much cemented except for one small detail...
I have no actual sketchbooks in my possession yet! You can see how that can make you a bit apprehensive...
I'm expecting my new sketchbook "Glam" to arrive from the printers in a few weeks, just in time for the San Diego Con... "Glam", is essentially a 32 page collection of sketches, scribbles and color works all sharing one common thread... they are all girls!... a small humble tribute to the greatest work of art in a way...

Big ups to my man Bruno Werneck for gettin' down and dirty and really making this sketchbook happen... A big source of help and inspiration throughout getting this thing together... my Jimminy Cricket!
His attention to detail is second to none...

My good friends and I all shared a table last year and it was an overwhelming blast to say the least! This year, however, we were all pretty much approved for our own individule exhibitor tables! Woo Hoo! If it's only half as fun as last year I'll be a happy camper. I had the oppertuntiy of meeting a lot of cool folks and expect to see them again, as well as meet a ton more!
So if you plan on attending the San Diego Comic Con this year, look out for all new sketchbooks this year from my fellow Chicago gang:

Bruno Werneck
Darryl Young
Bob Rissetto
and Dave Pryor
Sam Aquino
Kevin Barber
Ryan summers

Joining the dispersed gang this year will also be Robin Mitchell,
artist and ex disney sculptor Jason Peltz
and I'm counting on the former "Canadian Strong Man Competition" runner-up Steve Lambe to show his ugly grill as well!
Stop by their respective blogs to find out whats cookin. I'll be posting more info as we get closer to D-Day...
So if youre gonna be in San Diego for the con, let me know and stop by table F5, I'd love to meet everyone!
It should be an awesome time and I can't wait...
now, all i need is those darn sketchbooks...

J...

Sweet bippy! Man it's gonna be a good time.

Cover looks great man. I dig your choice to cover her up to make the interiors that much more revealing.

Sign me up. There's a serious lack of girls in our book and I don't wanna get the gay.

Thanks guys!
Cant wait,
thought i'd mention that this isnt actually the book cover but a postcard I made to throw around the con like confetti...
The cover is similar though with the same image...
I'll post something soon...
Rock on!

Well It's retro, it's loose and dynamic it's beautifully colored and it's appealing. It's such a rewarding feeling when one bumps into blogs such as this. You have a great aesthetics sense. I'll be comming arund often.
