Comic Convention Sketches

In honor of this weekend's Toronto Comics Art Festival I thought I would post my convention sketches from the various shows I've attended in the past, including last year's TCAF show.

In the sketchbook that I bring to the shows I try to draw an opening spread to set a theme for the sketches. The first one, from the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival (MoCCA) in 2002 was, obviously, Rock and Roll. The second from the Small Press Expo (SPX) 2003 was a bit more open...robots, outer space, or cowboys...or any combination of the three! This resulted in lots of fun, creative drawings. Check them all out here.

Thanks! I thought so too. Be sure to click through to the flickr gallery to see some real artists tackle this one. Cowboys dueling with robots, Cyborg gunslingers, and C-3PO as rendered by Paul freakin' Pope!
