NYCC Wrap Up

October 14th, 2014 | Posted in General

The Lovely Anna and I are back from New York Comic Con. It was a crazy, busy convention. I think it was actually more manic than San Diego… maybe that’s just because it’s approaching the same attendance levels but squeezed into a smaller area. Not having my own booth at SDCC I am not sure how I’d do under the same circumstances. All I know is I was swamped from open to close doing caricatures and commissions. Here’s some pictures from the show, including a couple of drawings I did:

uncacreepyI did this in someone’s sketchbook using Pitt pens. Had to channel my
inner Jack Davis to draw Uncle Creepy from Creepy Magazine

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds from “Firefly”

We had a great time. See you next year, NYCC!



  1. Great job with Pink… though I’m not very familiar with her work, I recognized her right away.

    Best of the batch…Uncle Creepy. Maybe, just my sentimental favorite.
