ECCC and Padme in a meadow


Some of you may have noticed my name on the guest list for Emerald City Comic Con. I am very sorry to say I have to cancel my appearance due to scheduling/story issues with the Wonder Woman comic I have been working on. I should also mention that I am now only providing the art for the first issue of the 2-part Wonder Woman story, which isn't really a bad thing.

I'm quite disappointed to miss the convention as it has been a long time since I attended a show and I always enjoy meeting folks and talking art. I'm going to do my best to make up for it at the next show, whenever and wherever that is!

Some of you may have also noticed that I have removed the 'Gallery' page on the site. This place needs an overhaul and most of that stuff needs to go. I'll put up some good work to replace that sad graveyard as soon as I can.

In the meantime, here's a private commission of Padme Amidala I painted a while back for a good friend and avid collector of comic art and illustration. You can view some of his impressive collection here.

It is painted in gouache with a tiny bit of colored pencil here and there on the line work. I used metallic gold and silver for the frame and details on the dress, which shimmers in the light but unfortunately can not be captured in a scan. You can kind of see the effect in the second photo. The Futhork at the bottom reads "Amidala". I don't recall the dimensions, but I'm guessing it was in the 12"x18" neighborhood.

Commission enquiries

Just a quick note to the kind folks who have written to me about ECCC commissions- I am trying to make some deadlines at the moment, so my apologies for not replying as of yet. I will get back to each of you with details as soon as I get out from under this workload. Probably after the weekend. Thanks!
