Back on my Grind!

Hi all. I'm finally back on my grind after NYCC and some other changes that have been going on. Before I get into the changes tho, let's back up and look at NYCC.

First, I want to say thanks to all those that came out to show support! It really makes it worth it seeing peoples faces light up because of something you did. And for those who bought something, extra props for you. I hope you are enjoying your art! Lastly, thanks to Rob, Micheline and Eugene for holding down the spot and making it a fun experience.

This was the first con I've done in years, and it was interesting to see how peoples spending habits have changed. It was also very fun to see all the costumes that were going around. I didn't get much of a chance to walk around and see the show, which was insanely huge incase you missed it. I did get to see and talk with Robert Kirkman tho, and that was awesome. He gave me a Walking Dead hat, which upon reflection, I should have had him sign, lol. I also got to meet Joyce deWitt ( Janet Wood of Three's Company ) and Tawny Cypress ( Simone Devaux of Heros ). There were plenty of other celebrities around as well that I only got a glance of. All in all it was a great time!

This year I had Original Art, Prints, and a new sketchbook: Gunn Smoke Vol 2, on sale. Currently I have a limited run of Gunn Smoke Vol 2 ( NYCC 2010 edition ) books left, and they are still for sale. If you are interested in purchasing one, just shoot me an email and I'll get back to you. Hopefully I'll have some more available in the future.

As I mentioned before, I've been going through some changes. The most notable is that I've left Nickelodeon after 7+ years. I had a great run over there. I've met tons of cool people and got to work on a lot of awesome properties. I will miss the things I came to love about that place, but now is the time for something new, tougher, better! There is a wide open world at my feet and I plan to hit the ground running. Actually, I already have!

While it might seem like things have stalled as of late, there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes right now. I'm still in a bit of a transitional period, but I'm keeping things moving on a daily basis. Also, a lot more of my time is devoted to the business side this game these days. It can be tough trying to do it for your self I know, but as an Artist, I think it is very important we learn at least a little bit about the bis side.

With that said, I have some exciting things in store for the future. Keep an eye out for more posts, art and entertainment. Holla.
