Wondercon Booth 1320

Moscone Center, San Francisco. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Scott Morse (TIGER!TIGER!TIGER!, MAGIC PICKLE), Bill Presing (BOOKPLATE BETTIES, REX STEELE), Enrico Casarosa (VENICE CHRONICLES, FRAGMENTS), and Ronnie del Carmen (AND THERE YOU ARE, PAPER BISCUIT).

I'll have my latest book, Bookplate Betties naturally. As well as two new prints available. My second Le Frou Frou piece and my new Valentines day piece. I'll also have a selection of my older prints still available. Depending on table space I may not have them visible, if so ask if you're interested.

And speaking of prints; in slightly related news my Peeping Totoro piece that I did for the Totoro Forest Project is now available for order exclusively at Gallery Nucleus. Like the show, the proceeds will go toward the Totoro no Furusato Forest Foundation.

(Unfortunately these I will not have at wondercon.)

International Girl of Mystery

Yuki7 is Kevin Dart's super cool 60's Japanese spy girl. Needless to say I flipped out when he asked me to do my version of her for his up coming book. Kevin is very influenced by 60's spy movie posters so I tried to think of something from the same genre and era but from a totally different direction. I also thought Yuki would make a great comic the first time I even saw her. So it seemed immediately natural to do a Jim Steranko take on the character. It was a blast, I'd have a lot of fun if I got to do a whole comic like this.

Boy, It felt really good to ink a page again. It's been awhile.

A lot of people have been asking how I paint this stuff, so for this latest piece I photographed the progression.

Also, here is an older progression I photographed a while back using the same technique only on a white watercolor paper.

And here is another, before and after concentrated water color application.

Happy Valentine's Day all you crazy love birds out there.

It's a "Wonder".

Just a quick note that I'll be attending Wondercon at the Moscone Center in San Francisco February 27 to March 1.
I'll be sharing booth #1320 with my pals Scott Morse and Enrico Casarosa. I'll have plenty of Bookplate Betties on hand and hopefully some prints.
See ya there!
