Owly and I just got back from having an absolutely awesome time at the Maine Comics Arts Festival! We had sucha great time we’ll be back for sure next year! But there’s barely time to get unpacked because this upcoming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (June 3rd, 4th, and 5th), we’ll be having a party on Indie Island at the amazing Heroes Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina! This show is always one of my favorites, but this year is extra special because they asked me to do the poster for the show!!
As you can see, the poster features Owly and all of his friends (along with quite a few new ones)! I always have a blast doing drawings like this because it gives me an excuse to draw as many animals as possible. I admit I got a little carried away on this one, but it’s all worth it of it and bring smiles to the faces of the attendees! To top it off I used the same vibrant colors I used in my book from Simon & Schuster and the Owly Prints. I really enjoyed working on this and I hope it makes you smile! :D
So come on down top Charlotte, NC and stop by the Top Shelf table and say hi to Rob Venditti, Van Jensen, Matt Kindt, Jeff Lemire,and myself…. and be sure to look around at all of the other artists at the show, including my good friends, J.Chris, Duane and Justin, Josh, Rob ,the AdHouse crew, the guys from the Dollar Bin, Ben Towle, Jim Mahfood, Chris Schweizer, Sarah Dyer & Evan Dorkin, Becky & Frank, and many many more!!!
We’ll have comics, books, toys, shirts, buttons, magnets, and all kinds of merchandise along with copies of the Indie Island poster for sale at the show! It’s going to be AMAZING!!! See you there! ^,^
