Sorry all. I was missing in action for a bit. But that’s because New York Comic Con happened last week and I had a lot of enjoyment walking the floor and meeting fellow geeks while putting my dSLR to good use. Here are some pics from the show. I shall return with more artwork to share soon. Enjoy!

photography: comic con 2012

October 16, 2012

This past weekend was the Comic Con convention in NYC where geeks gather each year, including yours truly.

Needless to say, it was a challenge to snap photos in mediocre lighting (I try not to use a flash) amidst the ever-flowing crowds. Though, with the help of my trusty, fast Sony dSLR, I managed to capture some images to share with you.

For me, there were several highlights sprinkled around the show. I was impressed by Wacom’s Cintiq drawing tablet which is like a big iPad, a monitor with a touch interactive screen, but this tool also helps an artist achieve a natural line, digitally, with paint brushes using Photoshop or Painter software.

Also, having the chance to demo Halo 4 multiplayer was a treat for me. Halo 4 will be released on November 6th which is also election day. Yikes.

In my opinion, the best costumes (photos featured in this post) were the classic Batman (ripped, with a splash of color blue, yet darker), the ensemble of characters from Lincoln The Vampire Hunter and Captain America in his patriotic pose.

new york comic con 2010

October 14, 2010

I didn’t have time to do my artwork, unfortunately, because I attended the three days of New York Comic Con, this past week.  As expected, the show was even bigger than last year. And that’s a good thing for us fans of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, etc.

As an artist, it is inspiring to be surrounded by so much creativity from comic artists of all different styles. One of my fave comic book artists is Cliff Chiang with his simple, yet realistically proportioned graphic characters. And there he was, sitting there and drawing at his table. I got a chance to meet him, and purchase some autographed work. I hope, one day I can be as popular as he is.

But take note, Comic Con has grown into a much greater monster than comics. There are now movie panels, how-to sessions, book sales and displays of amazingly detailed toys, just to name a few. There is a large presence of videogames, and, of course, the cosplay costume extravaganza. As I toured the floor, I took some photos and I wanted to share them with you.

comic con new york 2009

March 3, 2009

Here are some pics, I took at New York Comic Con in February 6-8 2009. I attended all three days. It’s not as big as San Diego’s, but it is steadily growing in popularity. Both Comic Con’s are so much more than comics. It’s also the movies, toys, and costumes. A couple of pics, below, feature the Fringe panel. Sadly, the next NY Comic Con won’t return until October 8, 2010. That’s a year and a half away! Ugh.
