Baltimore Comic Con 2008 Sketches
Finally posting these! I absolutely loved this con. It completely convinced me to try for San Diego next year.
First up is a pre-show request I made of Adam Withers and Comfort Love, who do a book called The Uniques. Bigby and Snow from Fables
Next are some cover layout sketches that Cliff Chiang did in preparation for issue number 9. First the layouts, then the final cover.
I really enjoy the one-page Mighty Marvels comics that Marvel sometimes run at the back of issues. So, picked up this sketch from Chris Giarusso of one of my favorite Marvel characters — Hawkeye.
Even though he wasn’t listed in the program, I stumbled on Cory Walker hanging at the Image booth and got this sketch of the character he helped create — Invincible.
Jamal Igle was hanging at the Cadence Comic Art table doing sketches and talking about his current run on Supergirl. This was before his first issue came out, but he had some proofs. I liked them so much, I commissioned this beautiful Supergirl piece from him.
It pays to get to the con early. I was lucky enough to be close to the front of Walt Simonson’s line — he only sketches until he decides to stop and as it was day 3, I don’t think he planned on sketching for very long. I got this great Thor from him
And one from Mike Oeming
Finally, continuing the tradition of pieces from Thom Zahler, here’s a Triplicate Girl. He inks his pieces with a brush, and it always amazes me to watch that process.
