Back from Wizard World Chicago
Well I'm back from Chicago.
I woke up Monday morning to read the terrible news that one of my heroes Mike Wieringo had passed away on Sunday from a heart attack at the age of 44! I never had the privalege of meeting 'Ringo in person, but he was always nice to me on the boards, and had nothing but encouragement towards my artistic endevors...I'm feeling a great loss with his passing. He made it "ok" for me to have this cartoonier style you all see above. I can't help but be choked up just thinking about the fact that I won't be able to check his sketch blog every other day anymore for new inspiration. I will NOT remove his link from this page either.
I drew this picture out of boredom at Wizard World Chicago. It started out as just the Thing, and grew from there. Overall, I'm relatively pleased with this one since I've never made it a point to draw the Fantastic Four before. I had a few commisions over the weekend, so all in all not too shabby.
I would like to say that I am available for commisions if anyone is interested, contact me through email, and it will be on a first come first serve basis because I still have a webcomic to put out twice a week, a day job, and at least a couple other projects coming down the pipe.
that's it for tonight.
good night, and good luck.
