Dolphin - Conventionless Convention Sketch #22

Fun fact, I drew Dolphin in Aquaman #3 about 100 years ago. :)

You can even pick up that comic for 99¢ on sale on Comixology this week. Ignore the cover credits though. I didn't draw it.

MegaCon 2015

I am still finishing up the Conventionless Convention Sketches but MegaCon crept up faster than I anticipated. So I needed to finish up some of the pre-show pieces before the show. That put me a bit behind on the others. That said, MegaCon was it's usual slowish show for me and I found time to rough out 7 of the CCSs left. Six of them being Legion of Super-Heroes and Legion of Super-Villains related. I plan to have all the CCS pieces done no later than the 28th. I do appreciate everyone's patience. And I will endeavor to make the pieces worth your wait.

Now how about some art...

I did some pieces at the show but only thought to get a shot of one of them. I'm terrible about that.

The best part of the show was seeing people I only see at that show or others. Got a lot of comments about my weight loss with was nice. The last show of note that I did was HeroesCon last year and that was before I started my weight loss so it was the first time many have seen my progress.

And of course hanging out with Joe Pekar at our shared table was great. We always have a great time together which is fortunate when you realize that he and I spend a long time in a car together going to and from HeroesCon. :)

And speaking of HeroesCon, I have had many people ask me when the advance list will be announced. It will be after FCBD. Sometime the first week of May. But we will meet here again long before that.
