APE is here! [cross-posted to my general sketchblog]

And in all my earnest preparation and other busy things, I neglected updating my blogs! Shame on me!

I'm here in San Francisco, though, staying in a really cool hostel. Would definitely recommend it to friends.

I'm just working on getting everything ready for tomorrow! I've got three mini prints (4"x6", the farting girl, superhero girl, and the farting unicorn [which I forgot to post the final version of! I'll have to do that when I get home... he is my favorite]) and a mini poster (about 12"x10.5" of the Devil Girl drawing from the Pissed Off Pinups title bar). Plus I have a portfolio of sketches for people to look through, and some fun little business cards that have my info at the bottom and a blank thought bubble at the top that I can draw different little things in... so every card will be different).

It should be a really fun time!

So if you're in San Francisco, head down to the Concourse (620 7th Street) this weekend and check it out! It's only 10 bucks for one day and 15 for both. And there's a lot of other cool people going, like Rachel and Mikey of Poseur Ink, Meredith Gran of Octopus Pie, and Jennie Breeden of The Devil's Panties, among others. Yay!

It's been over a month, but what a busy month!

I've been getting stuff done for APE! Yay! Sadly, I had to ditch the calendar idea for now (I'll probably put one together for 2010, so there will be more than a month to buy it before it starts), BUT I am going to have a whole bunch of mini prints!

Here's a sneak prreview of one! More to come!
This sketch below will probably turn into a print too.I'll also have a few non-pinup prints as well... You can see a preview sketch of one of them on my main sketchblog.

The more I get done, the more I will post! It's now less than a month to APE!

A brief update:

I apologize for my absence; I've had a lot of life stuff going on, and have been focused on that. I do have some news, though. I got confirmation that I will indeed have a table at the Alternative Press Expo.

Funny story: the original email I received told me I was on a waiting list... which made me really bummed, but I was going to go anyway. I figured I could help out some of the other people I know are going to be there.

Twenty minutes later, I received another email that basically said, "Oops, we sent you the wrong message, this is the correct one! Sorry!" The correct message being that I had a table. Made me laugh.

I got the paper I'm using for the calendar drawings from Dick Blick today... It's a bit rippled, sadly, but it should still work just fine for my purposes. I also found it amusing that they mailed my soft-lead pencil sharpener separately in a box about a thousand times to big. Silly shipping people.

More progress!

Two of my favorite sketches for the calendar thus far: an angry super hero chick and a parody of this Gil Elvgren painting:Except that in my version, the bear's alive and they're brawling. I might also make the bear a grizzly.

I'm starting on the final drawings this weekend. YEAH!

No sketches for now, but more thoughts on the calendar.

I've got a couple more layout sketches done. (Yay!) I'm probably going to start on the final drawings in about a week.

For the last couple of days I've been looking around at printers and prices as well as putting some thought into what scale I'd like this to be. I'm also thinking about postcard prints and buttons.

Just two and a half more months until APE! I'm both excited and stressed out about how fast that time is going to go by.

A couple of sketches and some calendar news.

I worked on some preliminary sketches for the calendar this weekend, and it looks like I have three solid ones so far. As it turns out, my previously posted idea for the theme wasn't working out so well (I'm going to make that the theme for the 2010 calendar so I have more time to spend on it), so I decided to just go with what came to me. I'm pretty happy with the direction it's going. I've also decided to do the illustrations in colored pencil on colored paper, like the devil girl sketch on the title banner at the top of the page.

I didn't want to post any previews of the calendar art yet, though, so here's a quick sketch of the devil girl and an angry chick's head:
