Comic-Con

I'll not be attending the San Diego Comic-con this year, for reasons I'll reveal soon. (although some of you know already ;)

Graphic Collectibles however will be there selling these two original pieces of art of mine. These are the originals, not prints. They'll be at booths 500 - 504.



That second piece was for a print ad promoting my new French art book. Here's what it looked like:

I'll miss seeing you there; it was a pleasure meeting and talking with you briefly at the last couple of San Diego Cons (although, I'm certain you wouldn't remember me, out of the thousands who were also there).

I will definitely look into the two prints you mention in this post, but there was something I had hoped to find at your table this year ..

Do you have any prints of your second "Le Frou Frou" illustration (on the penny-farthing bicycle) still available..?

I have a print of the first one, and would very much like to pair it with the second.

Thanks in advance for any information you may provide .. and best wishes to you during the next week!

EXELENTE!

Donovan "Slinus" Jones said...

Will these be available through the Graphic Collectibles website for us non-convention goers?

Michael Dooney said...

I'll miss seeing you at the con Bill, but I guess you have a good AND SECRET reason for not going this year, so that's extra cool!

These aren't prints, these are the original pieces of art that are for sale.

droosan,
Action Figure Freddy in San Francisco carries that Frou Frou print. They do mail order as well.

Mike,
I'm bummed that I'm missing my chance to finally meet you in person, but yeah I have a real good excuse.
I'm sure we'll get another opportunity though.

Beautiful! I love the one with the green bottles. :) Just picked up your Book Plate Betties book -- you've got gorgeous work, Bill! :)

Tony said...

drat graphic collectibles already sold them :(

bpresing said...

What? Really?
I wish they would tell me these things.

Tony said...

Yeah I'm bummed. Absolutely LOVE your work! Do you have any shows coming up?

droosan said...

Thanks very much for the tip on Action Figure Freddy. ^_^ The "Le Frou Frou" bicycle print is not listed for sale on their website .. but I made a request via e-mail, and found out that they do have it.

At least that's one less item I'll have to worry about carrying around all day at the Con..!

.. but I'll still miss seeing you there.
