Rose City Comic Con was two weeks ago and I think I’ve finally recovered. This show is a lot like coming home for me, as it’s first year happened to be my first time trying my hand at tabling at a comic book convention. I tend to use it as a testing ground for new concepts that I want to roll out. It was at this show that I first tried my “Like a Girl” series — and this year I continued the trend.
I don’t really do much fan art. Don’t get me wrong — there’s a lot of stuff out there that I love and would love to take the time to celebrate with my style, but that’s also the problem. What do I choose to do? And when you think about it in respects to comic conventions, there’s only so much table space I can devote to my prints. So I’m trying something new: I’m doing con-exclusive prints. I’ll choose something from popular culture that I want to celebrate and debut a print at a known show and once they’re gone they’re gone. At Rose City Comic Con this year, I did Holtzmann from the 2016 Ghostbusters film. Much to my surprise they all sold on the very first day of the con. This piece was a lot of fun to work on.
Next up will be Geek Girl Con, and I can’t wait to show you what I have in store!
