Knock-knock! Who’s there? Doctor! Doctor Who..?!

Been a while since I did an update, so I thought I’d share some things I’ve been working on in my “spare” time.


First up is my latest painting- a Tom Baker/4th Doctor I did for the MidSouthCon art show last weekend.


I had it, along with my “The Man Who Laughs” and “Ming, The Merciless” on one panel…


…and my “Young Sherlock“, “Stage Fright!“, “Playing With Your Head“, and “Mummy” paintings on another panel.


The Doctor was very popular at the con!


He was 2’x3′ and airbrushed acrylics on a stretched canvas. Tom Baker was always my favorite Dr. Who, but I still dig the new Doctors!


So does my wife, Nicki!


We had a great time at MidSouthCon, and I’ll be doing a full blog post about it on Have Geek Will Travel soon!


The other thing(s) I’ve been working on is the t-shirt design for the 35th annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL. So far the feedback to the design has been positive.


This is the second time I’ve gotten to design the official logo design for the celebration. I did it last year as well. I didn’t draw either Superman- the line art was provided by DC Comics. I did the design- layout, colors, and typesetting on each.


The design will be used not only on tees for sale in Metropolis, but also on the staff/volunteer tees, Superman Celebration program guides, buttons, mugs, and more.


Got a few new sketchcard gigs I’ll be able to announce soon, plus looking forward to doing more art for the Orpheum Theatre now that their 2013-2014 schedule has been announced. I’ll be doing another chair for auction, plus hopefully more for them over the next year.


For now- I’ve gotta fly!
