Last weekend I had the pleasure of tableing at the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. I met a ton of super nice people, jaw-droppingly talented artists and sold a ton of prints to boot!
Thanks to everyone to stopped by my table to chat with my dumb face, and to those who picked up some mini comics, postcards and prints! I’ve still got the warm fuzzies.
And thanks to the people who organized such a rad event!
I got to meet this *awesome* artist at VanCAF and cannot recommend enough that you check out her work!

Here are a few sneak peeks from the behind the scenes pinups that are going into the book! Or teasers, maybe?
I don’t know how to explain how much fun I’ve had drawing Conan doing silly mundane things but maybe these teasers will begin to communicate it?

Toons on Tap lifedrawing!
If you like costumed life drawing, I’m updating my art blog daily with drawings from Toons on Tap, a local costumed life drawing night run by excellent animation friends.
Here’s a timelapse video I made of the painting process for this illustration of Conan chasing Greg (the cat). I’m saving the final piece as a reward for people who preorder The Collected By Crom, but you can go see the inked pinup over on the By Crom blog here.
I’m also happy to answer any process questions you guys have or take feedback on this video stuff - it’s new to me and I’m pretty pumped about it!
So yeah, any questions?
