new things...on the horizon

Don't post so much here...with the ease of instagram and tumblr right now the task of scanning things...blech. it's on my calendar to do a bunch of backlogged sketchbook scanning (you know...from a year ago...) but for right now I'm just about to head up to Traverse City for just about my fav comic con, Cherry Capitol Con! If you follow me on twitter and instagram i'm sure there will be lots of tomfoolery to post from the weekend, if not i'll meet you back here soon to talk about art and things. here are a few new pieces i've done as commissions or convention art.
a Rob Stark, because believe it or not I got requests for him, and I was pleased with the drawing, he goes very well with my Jon Snow that I did last year.

i LOVE this say 'it came to me in a dream' sounds hokey, but it's kinda true! as i was going to sleep i suddenly KNEW how I was going to draw Clegane, and I couldn't be happier with it. I left any type out of the image just because i didn't need to add any and i know he should be on a field of yellow, but with the scar and him serving the Lannisters red seemed the best choice.
 this was a great commission i loved doing! This was a gift to Robert Stanzler from his partners at Detroit Mercantile co. for their one year anniversary party that was held last night at their lovely shop event space in Eastern Market in Detroit. I'm not sure if the piece will be displayed at the store or at Stanzler's house, but I'll try ad get a picture of it all framed up.
