This is another friend Melissa Poirier we haven' seen in ages, this was her first Comicon, appearing in a a great Emma Frost costume.
                                                                                                   This is my shot with Spock                                                                                                                       Vegas, Never had one with just me                                                                                                             before, wanted to remedy that this year.

 Laurie with us                                       Here's some pix we got from this years Con (Montreal)
 


 Dean's car, not the actual one they use in Supernatural, a great replica that is road worthy.




So ends another Con, you can see my portfolio behind us, my original works including Blond World beside and in front of me. (Previous pic) I will be focusing on the final colorization on Blond World, beginning to ink the pencil works I have on Sagant, and other ongoing works. I hope to be at more Conventions in 2017, I will see if I can get into the Fan Expo in Toronto for September

Montreal Comicon 2016 is behind us. It was a great time, but didn't get to see or participate in very much, the focus was on our corner table. That time investment didn't pay off as well this year as the last, it seems that there were many people who came out despite the periodic rain, the report is over 60 thousand,  (the report for 2015 was over 50 thou,) yet there seemed to be less buyers and more lookers. Not as many people walking around with purchases, I had to make a few deals to make sales. Every year can't be great, however the cost of doing the Montreal Con has us reconsidering options for the Future. Amazingly enough, the Toronto Comicon and the Fan Expo are actually cheaper to participate in. We may be doing them for 2017. I definitely want to do the Cornwall con, the event is called Capes. Small cons have their advantages, predominantly no big name stars with expensive meet and greet packages to compete with. Who knows what the future holds, whatever works best for promotion. Speaking of which, we touched base with Dexter, who has taken to my work and talking about it to others with great enthusiasm. He is looking forward to another project I have called Sagant (Pronounced Say-gent). I am posting a few pix for Mon Con 2016:


Thats soon to be married Jason Glowa with Marie and her husband Thiago, Laurie and myself.

I still don't have as much merchandise as I would like, but my portfolio is growing, and I am quickly catching up to where I want to be.

My work on Blond World continues, even though for the last 6 months I have been focusing on beefing my portfolio, showing what I can do with established characters, and original works created as posters. That and continuing to seek help in getting this condition balanced, Both are a slow go. The coloring for me is important, and I want the 'look' and 'feel' of Blond World to be a step above the rest. Here are some examples of whats coming, I am coloring Blond World 1 - 6, I will be releasing them all at once when they are done!



      

Here's the difference that color makes. Art work you see here is at various stages, ergo incomplete. I only got caught up to the 21st century with computers and graphic arts in 2009, Been learning alot since, education is a continuous ongoing process. The results are coming along, and before the end of 2016, all 6 Blond Worlds will be done!

I have B & W versions of Blond World 1 - 3 printed and am selling them at the Con. I have a colorized e-version of Blond World 1 available on disk as well.

My table # at the Montreal Comicon is 1701.

I have a recurring theme that I seem to gravitate towards in my work, I take retro images, characters, and I 'redo' them in an 'updated' fashion, like the Rocket Robin Hood tribute image I did. I take the old and make it look cool! They had a very cool character called Infinata that also appeared on the original Spider-man 1960's cartoon. He was from another dimension called dimentia 5 (Whatever that was) I did an image of him as well. He is a very cool design. I jazzed him up in my own way. You can that image as well as the Rocket Robin Hood image in my previous post. I keep things looking Comicbook-like, but rendering them in Cover Art quality. If I had the bucks, I would love to do an updated animation movie of Rocket Robin Hood, or Ultraman (Although this is apparently being done in Japan, you can see a promo clip on YouTube.)  I've done a few Adam West Batman and Ceasar Romero Joker images, making it look as cool as it does in the comics.

Here's another example:

I still have to update a website I have, as soon it's to my satisfaction I can link it to this blog. Just to advise, any who are reading this who would like to purchase cool art, I do requests and commissions. I usually do one or two at each Comicon. If you have any requests, don't be shy!

COMICON 2016  July 8 - 10  Palais de Congres Montreal

Posted here is a near complete fan art of some of my favorites in the Comics world, I have updated my portfolio with various new works, I am posting some of them below. Progress has improved since the last Con in continuing my work, both on Blond World and my portfolio, trying to get help with my Bipolar condition remains a slow go.  I am now working on pencil drawings for the Con, I will post my table number once I have the lay-out of the event.
