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.

On Halloween eve, three friends, cautiously, approach the last house of the night in hopes to receive the best “Treat” of their lives.

I drew this in pen and ink, and color painted digitally.

Happy Halloween.

In memory of the great Stan Winston, the special effects, costume and make-up guru of many of our childhood fave movies, we geeks salute you. He is most known for his work on Terminator, Jurassic Park and of course, Aliens. He made our hearts pump with fear and excitement, not to mention, pop out of our chests! Most recently, his team created the awesome suit for this summer’s superhero hit, Iron Man. Personally, I will remember him for his work on one of my all-time-favorite sci-fi/horrors, John Carpenter’s “The Thing”. And, I quote a friend of mine who commented on Stan’s monsters, “He has some imagination!”
