Welcome to my super late Wednesday art blog.

I spent all day finishing and scanning my Valkyrie cover for Marvel. And all evening organizing my storage space looking for rare leftover art prints to sell at Baltimore Comic-Con this weekend. The good news is the basement is now organized, but the bad news is I’ve only found half the art prints that I was looking for.

So here’s the revised list of crap that I’m selling at Baltimore Comicon:

*Muse Book 1, signed and numbered – $15
*Brandy Art Print, signed and numbered – $20 (Limited supply. These are the leftovers from San Diego Comicon. We only have about 30 prints left.)
*Paris Hardcover art book – $25 (Limited supply. These are the leftovers Art Exhibit books from my first Paris Art show last year. Less than 50 copies left.)
*Scarlet Witch Official Marvel Print -$10 (Super limited supply – 6 prints left)
*Shanna the She-Devil 01 Official Marvel Print – $10 (Super limited – 3 prints left)
*Shanna the She-Devil 02 Official Marvel Print – $10 (Super limited – 5 prints left)
*Tomb Raider Print – $10
*Tiffany Taylor Print – $20 (Limited supply – 15 prints left)
*Quiet Bullets Chap Book – $10
*Nude Brandy float pens – $5

And yes, I will have my final Art Challenge of the year on Sunday 1 PM at Baltimore Comicon. I will draw whatever the audience wants, live on stage. The audience will pick ONE character, ONE setting, ONE action and I’ll draw it in ONE hour. The original art will be raffled off at the end. Raffle tickets will be sold at at my booth. Each raffle ticket is $5.

Also to all my completist fans out there looking to fill the holes in their collections, I just found out “Cards, Comics and Collectibles” is bringing old and rare merchandise of mine from past years.

See you all this weekend at Baltimore Comic-Con

Stan Lee and Me!

Baltimore Comic-Con 2011. One word: Wow.

Simply the best con that I’ve attended – bar none!

I’ve got to meet Stan Lee, one of the most influential figures in the comic book world ever and my childhood hero, not once but TWICE. The first time was pretty surreal and we didn’t talk much. But the second time after Stan Lee’s autograph session, I got to meet him privately away from the public eye. (Thank you, Andy and Mike.) Not only did he had a great sense of humor, he was sharp and still passionate about comics. He was genuinely curious about my Marvel work and my art. To hear Stan Lee tell me that he loved my women… Wow.

I asked if I could take a picture with him. He said, “let’s do this right”, stood up and put his arm around my shoulder.

Wow. What a great guy.

On the sales end, this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con was one of most profitable conventions that I’ve attended all year. The attendance was up through the roof. The whole show was abuzz with excitement. Everyone I’ve talked to were truly happy about the show and comics in general. Everything ran smoothly, thanks to the well informed and friendly volunteers. My “One-Character-One-Action-One-Setting-In-One-Hour” Drawing Challenge panel ran great despite a minor hiccup in the beginning. I hope that I didn’t offend anyone with my salty language while I drew Power Girl riding a T-Rex in the Wild West.

Even though I literally got back from the show and I’m completely exhausted, I want to go back again.

I can’t wait for next year’s Baltimore Comic-Con.
